I get baby octopus at my market and just grill them briefly. 2 minute a side the marinate them a little afterward. They are about the size of mainstream calamari.

Since I am eating most of my calories before noon, I wasn't hungry until about 9:00 p.m. I ended up wilting the swiss chard--the baby leaves were a bit beyond baby chard size. Couldn't find the almonds, sesame seeds are at the house in the City, so I used toasted/roasted pecans I found in the freezer instead. Added a bit of mozz. at the end and ate it while it was still warm (the chard). Used about 1 c of the strawberries, sliced. I am saving the batteries on the camera to record the progress of the chicklets.

This recipe is close to how I make it:

I'm full! I did make a "healthy" serving size of the chard....but that's a veggie, so why not?

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.

I absolutely love octopus sushi.

That does look delicious, Bucky.

Harry, remember that BT is in New York City, so it will cost more than average. Here in SE Virginia, we can get sushi in grocery stores or from a Japanese restaurant. A box of sushi or sashimi might cost USD$6-8 each, depending on the kind of fish it contains.

DH is out of town, so I made myself a pan-seared pork chop, baked potato, and green salad for dinner last night.
