Harry,

Spain is playing Croatia for the European Cup, so we are out for wine and tapas ... Maybe some squid or prawns to pick on ...

Well, I am sure Bolas is all geared up for Croatia !

Ciao,
Have nice evening.
Margi.

Buonasera, Jabbur,

I love octopus and squid or Calamari, however, the taste profile is quite distinct --- the texture, has a comparison yet, also quite different ...

Ocotopus has very thick bland arms and is not particularly slippery in texture due to its very thick tentacles; however, squid is slippery and finer ...

Also, of course squid can cook up fairly quickly depending on the size of the squid and type ... Calamari is a bit different than squid --- it is related however, a different breed with a different Latin Name.

Have nice evening,
Ciao, Margi.

Harry and Laurie LPB,

Now Octopus Sashimi and Squid Sashimi sound divine ... However, Spain is playing Croatia, so not tonight ...

Japanese on for Friday evening with friends, sounds wonderful.

All my best, Ciao.
Margi.

Must be Monday, cause it's leftovers here.

The girls took me out for Indian last night and, as usual, our eyes were bigger than our stomachs. So we have a fridge full of Biryani, Lamb Balti, and Chicken Makhani. An assortment of Naan as well. Plenty for tonight's meal.

Harry, there isn't much in the squid/octopus/cuttlefish family that I don't like. But, there are some squid (Humbold) and octopus (giant) that I'm not sure who is after whom in the water.

Does anyone have any yummy stuffed zucchini recipes? I'd be receptive to any and all.
I made stuffed zucchini over the weekend. Came out great Just veggies and cheese in this one, but you could add browned, drained sausage to add some protein. I just posted the recipe: Grilled Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Six pound bone-in sirloin of pork roast with roasted potatoes and a side dish of creamed chopped kale.

The small (~ 1 meter long - top of head to tip of tentacle) polpe that I've caught in the Italian Mediterranean were quite tasty.
