Re: Re: fat birdies/now octopus


one of the most delicious meals i've had was at a private residence in san jose del cabo that offered meals to tourists. it was octopus, prepared quite simply with peppers, tomatoes, and garlic.

Pam, I know what you mean.  We recently ate at a great Italian place here,
and I ordered "Fruit of the Sea".  I was all ready to enjoy the clams,
mussels, shrimp, scallops, etc., when I noticed a tiny little octopus
sitting legs up in the middle of the bowl.  Well, I thought, ok, I'll just
put it aside and enjoy this dish.  But it was mostly octopus (octopi?)!  I
ate it, but every bite went down thinking about all those legs; I just
couldn't put my taste buds above my brain and enjoy it.  Other than being
leggy, it was a little tough, so I decided to always ask before ordering in
future.
