    Sauteed scallops in rich creamy tarragon sauce on bed of smashed potatoes and steamed fresh spinach. Great for a romantic twosome or dinner party! This serves two; can multiply for more. (Will post photo when published)

      Since I work full-time, I'm always looking for good, quick meals to serve. This was very easy and very tasty. I served it with rice instead of potatoes, and spooned the scallops and sauce over both the rice and spinach.
