I found this bag of mixed seafood (calamari, squid, shrimp, mussels, and clams) for real cheap at giant eagle. Sauted with shallots, garlic, oil and butter, Mixed in alfredo sauce and parmesan. Saved it all for my lunches at work. It was a good week.

I'm jealous MegaMark.

How do you cook your calamari. I love the flavor, but it's so easy to ruin. I had to return my entree at a restaurant. I could not chew them.

If that were my bag, I'd make fritters with creamed corn and calamari


Cooked real fast.

Clam chowder, Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Mussels and linguini Alfredo

Cmon, TaxLady I'm sure we can figure out a few delicious dishes with seafood like that!

I haven't had anything to eat yet. The sinus pressure from this cold hurts.

Guess it is time for more aspirin.

Try standing in a steamy shower with the water hitting the back of your neck, breathe in through your nose as much as you can. Wish I could hand you a jar of my eucalyptus bath salts!

I'll do that, and I have some Vick's Vaporub as well as some Mentholatum. Thanks, Princess. Good idea.

Went there, did that. Feels better.

It's gotten pretty chilly, time to run the heater for awhile.

Good, it's one of the things I do when my sinuses are aching. I also stir a tablespoon of the bath salts into a bowl of boiling water and put a towel over my head and breathe that in...you could try that with the Vick's, too...sure makes the bowl greasy!
