Delicious Silky Pumpkin Pie


I absolutely love pumpkin anything.  I know this post might not be that helpful right now, unless you are a pumpkinphile like me.  Anyway, last Thanksgiving was the first time I made anything by myself for Thanksgiving,  Usually, I used to just help my mom with our coconut rice, maduros, and chopping some vegetables and running to the store as needed.

Seared Scallops and/or Shrimp in Garlic Butter

This recipe is one of my favorites because it works for both scallops and shrimp (the seared scallops are pictured above and the shrimp are below).  You should allow for some extra time if you are using frozen shrimp to defrost, deshell, and devein them.  he key is to make a bit of extra garlic butter sauce so the pasta and seafood compliment each other.  I should add that this is not one of my "new" recipes since I made it in 2011, but it is one of my favorites so i wanted to share it.
