I finally decided to get the frozen capon, which even now is defrosting in the refrigerator, along with a duck I bought on a whim at the same time. The capon’s for Thanksgiving, the duck I’ll have before.

I made a serendipity salad last night that I really enjoyed. I had half a fairly large plastic box of Earthbound Farms Organic Spring Mix on hand, so I added to that:

Some crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
5 slices of thick bacon that I chopped and sautéed

Then in the bacon fat, I sautéed:

2 minced cloves of garlic
1/2 medium onion, minced
1 small Delicata squash, cut in quarters lengthwise, seed, and sliced
salt and freshly ground pepper

Once the squash was tender, I added that to the developing salad. Then in the same pan I sautéed 5 sea scallops and added those.

Finally, I deglazed the pan with about 3 Tbsp of sherry vinegar and added that.

I tossed it all together, and man, it was good. The cheese had melted a little and the greens were slightly wilted by the hot ingredients, but overall it was a lovely salad. And I ate it while watching Holes, which I enjoyed: a classic sort of fairy tale in a modern setting.
