>> how are you, best friend.

>> so this is a very simple, simple kabob skewer. and the trick is, it's bacon. that's the turf. bacon makes it the turf. so it's scallops wrapped with the bacon. and when you wrap the bacon, make sure it doesn't overlap the scallop because then the cooking process, you'll not cook the scallop enough. put that through. when the bacon is crispy is when the scallop is done. the integrity is protein, vegetable. beauty mushrooms that we love.
