Not my bad, not entirely.   I bought the scallops, another batch of the local variety, despite a lingering less-than-stellar impression from a recent experience (see 4.127 Scallops in Egg Curry), hoping that I could improve their flavor and texture by searing them in butter.  Texture aside, they ended up tasting a bit funny, whether inherently odd or just off, I couldn’t quite tell, but I threw out the entire batch just in case, fortunately before the kids had a chance to eat any.  Although I did manage to salvage some of the pasta that hadn’t yet been tossed with the scallops, the dish as envisioned was a failure.

See, they looked all nice and clean and pretty.
