When I make this, the elderly neighbors ask me to cook it for them. They go out and buy the ingredients themselves. Just for a quart they pay me $5.00.

  1. In a large heavy saucepan over medium heat, cook bacon until brown and crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towel. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of drippings. Add scallops and brown well on all sides; remove to a paper towel. Add onion to drippings and cook until just softened. Add potatoes, green bell pepper and garlic; cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Add vegetable stock and bring to boiling; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
  2. Add cream, scallops and corn; cook uncovered until potatoes and scallops are tender.
  3. Just before serving, add parsley and reserved bacon; season to taste with salt and pepper.
