Pirate loves octopus. It is the one treat he buys for himself once a month. I leave the house. Yuk! He is the most adventurous one in the family when it comes to food. He learned that from his father.

Pulpo ceviche is very popular where we go in Mexico. And it's delicious. My problem is I've fallen in love with these extremely intelligent, beautiful creatures in the wild, and have a hard time thinking about eating them. But I guess the same thing could be said for pigs and cows. Guess I need to stop overthinking, I'm not meant to be a vegetarian!

I wrote that I like it, not that I eat it. These guys are over the line smart for my personal preferences. I do feel bad about eating pork, but it's just too danged tasty.

I either get the taste for Milka Hazelnut milk chocolate or a good hard aged cheese.

That's kind of what I thought - octopus and squid are very smart and it would be like catching and cooking another person to me.

Himself said "that's it's fault", so I guess that means you can eat guilt-free.

Roasted red pepper hummus and pita chips is my current favorite.

But I do love boursin with cocktail bread, cheesy chili on Fritos, and definitely cheesy popcorn.
