A note about serious food allergies

Sweet scallops and yummy potatoes make for a meal that's much like a pillow: soft, comfortable, and you can whack someone with it without causing permanent damage. (That last part not so much.) If you're aching for a burst of color, fresh snap peas and corn are here for vibrancy and flavor, complementing the cheesy, rich, bacony sauce perfectly. Soft is superb!
