Shrimp & Scallop Quick Pasta

Shrimp & Scallop Quick Pasta

Since I decided to skip practice Monday, Tim and I decided to cook dinner. I didn’t have anything prepared, so we winged it. The result was delicious!


  • A box of tri-colored rotini
  • 6 scallops
  • shrimp
  • mushrooms, sliced
  • spinach, chopped
  • artichoke hearts & olives would be divine in here…
  • Olive Oil
  • Red Wine Vinegar
  • Dijon mustard
  • Garlic cloves, diced
  • Lemon Juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • butter


  • Cook pasta according to directions on the box. The last minute of cooking, add spinach and mushrooms to warm through.*
  • Sauté scallops in olive oil and butter, according to directions.  Set aside (cover w/ foil to keep warm.)  Cook shrimp.  in remaining butter/oil.  Set aside.  *Optional–you can sauté spinach/mushrooms in oil/butter instead of boiling them.
  • Mix olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, dijon, and salt and pepper together for dressing.
  • Put drained pasta with spinach and mushrooms in a bowl.  Top with shrimp and scallops.  Drizzle dressing over the whole thing. Serve immediately.

This was really good.  We ate all the shrimp/scallops the first night, so I had the leftover noodles/veggies the second day with tofu as a pasta salad. Mmmm…  Next time I’ll add artichoke hearts and maybe some black olives.

So glad so many ppl showed up today!  We played Conts vs the world for two periods, and there were a handful of FCers there so it wasn’t super overwhelming for everyone else–though there were more Conts than World’ers.  I thanked everyone for coming and letting us Conts play together (I’m not trying to be a martyr, here, I just know it’s not always super fun, and hoped everyone knowing how much we appreciated it helped w/ that.)  I enjoyed skating w/ my Conties.  I thought we did pretty well.  Our communication was better than usual, and our awareness.  We certainly have a lot to work on, but it was a good day overall.  Also, I personally played well with some girls I haven’t “connected” with in the past, so that was awesome.  I ❤ being a Cont.  We’re competitive, we’re fun, and well.  Basically we’re the shit.  I’ve never felt more welcome, more part of a team, than my first Contenders bout experience.  All the other Conts were so welcoming, supportive, and.  Well.  Just great.  I ❤ them.

Anyway, I did drink beer twice this weekend.  I ate a shit ton of crap yesterday and loved every minute of it.  Today, I chose a second beer drinking cheat day because Q is leaving, and she invited me over, I love Q, and I will be missing her party Friday b/c I am bouting DRD Saturday (OMFG THAT IS THIS WEEK????!!!!???!)  I don’t feel badly.  I’m doing TBT to improve my derby and my endurance has already improved tremendously.  Consider this a “one month in” celebration.  Cheers to me.  I’m drinking and eating shit this weekend.  But… I still exercised a lot (Spin Sat, plus Scrimmage Sat and Sun.)  And I still ate well except when I was at social events.  So.  Maybe a naughty weekend, but I don’t feel bad.

(Here comes the moment where Frida sees and yells at me…  I may soon feel bad… maybe she won’t read this one…)
