Soy Citrus Scallops with Udon Noodles and Snow Peas

Soy Citrus Scallops with Udon Noodles and Snow Peas

It has been a really long time since I’ve had a terrible, no good day.

I should go knock on some wood.

But, yesterday was a terribly, no good day.

Ingredients

  • But, yesterday was a terribly, no good day.
  • I was actually NOT running late, but my GPS was having trouble finding the location. When it said I had arrived, there was definitely not a hospital campus in sight. I was sitting at a red light and leaned over to the passenger side floor to pick-up the printed page that contained the address of the conference. During my lean to retrieve the paper, my foot came off the brake and the car started rolling forward. I slammed on the brake, but unfortunately, my foot landed on the accelerator instead.
  • I went speeding ahead…straight into the Jeep in front of me.
  • Seriously? Seriously.
  • The young guy driving the Jeep pulled over and in my haze of stupidity for my careless action, I was totally shaken up, literally. “Are you okay?”….Are you sure you’re okay?” he kept asking as I was jotting down my insurance information.
  • A diabetes conference later and a quick visit to a body shop for a quite, I’m looking at $2-3k for my carelessness. UGGGGGGGGGGGH.
  • After my workout, Mr. Prevention suggested going out for dinner. And I happily obliged. Even though I had a very simple dinner planned, I jumped on the ease of dinner being made for me. I don’t think I could’ve handled a dinner as simple as this last night and that’s saying something because it doesn’t get much easier than this.
  • I’ve been anxious to post this recipe for over a week now — we were both wow-ed by this one. Simple, fresh, and delicious!
