A Mid-Week Break

 

Not really my cuppa tea, if you want to know the truth!

That makes a very nicely shot but gruesome image.
Ginnie Hart: Would you want to buy any of it, Michael???? UGH.

Vu comme ainsi, cela ne fait pas trop envie. Jolie photo !
Ginnie Hart: It actually spoils my appetite, Martine, even though I know lots of people like it.
they are not very pretty Ginnie... but they make a great pattern for the image....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. It's hard to believe it was for sale at the fish market, but it was.
Me neither, Ginnie! But at lest you made a great photo of it!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. It reminds me of those movies when you see the entrails being removed from beast/human!

You can stuff them with all kind of goodies and eat them..
I have to say they do good for posing for you... they did not move wink
Great shot smile
Ginnie Hart: LOL. Thank God they didn't move, MLMA, otherwise I would have been out of there! I did just read on Wiki that the Japanese like to serve them while the arms pieces are still moving on the plate. UGH. No, thank you!
They look so ugly but but are so tasty in a plate Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I knew someone was eventually going to say that, Richard. smile

Oh, Ginnie, not in the early morning, please ....
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Philine. I know. Actually, it spoils my appetite at any time of the day! smile

This is a very good picture, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Of something most of us can't stomach, Lisl??? HA! Thanks.

Nor mine Ginnie I must say
Ginnie Hart: And to think it was all for sale, Chris!!!
Not appetising at all in this picture Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Not for me either, Chad, even if cooked!
Never actually eaten them but I would try them if someone cooked them!
Ginnie Hart: Go ahead, Bill, and eat my serving, too! smile
Please can you let Astrid know that I love her salty telephone today. Did she see this is Droitwich?
Ginnie Hart: I will let Astrid know, Chad (though you realize you can send her a card and tell her yourself, right?). LOL about Droitwich. No, she saw it in Malta! Very salty there by the Mediterranean!
Me either, Ginnie..Wish I hadn't looked now...smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! My thoughts exactly, Frank. It really grosses me out.
When stuffed and covered with sauce, more appetizing but Ginnie, what a great shot.
Ginnie Hart: Fix it any way you want, Mary, and you can have it all. smile Thanks.
Very good picture, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.

Nor me, either. Perhaps when cooked and presented differently, it is very tasty but I'm not really convinced.
Ginnie Hart: My sentiment exactly, Alan!!!
Nor mine either Ginnie, it makes me squirm just looking at your picture, how do people put this in their mouths!!
Ginnie Hart: I agree exactly, Brian. It's totally a psychological thing for me, which I gladly admit! smile

I know a some brilliant recipes for squid. Make a soup, stew, cut steaks and grill them with some sea salt and lemon juice, combine with pasta, crisp fried whole baby squid - so many ways. I still have to come across a recipe that is not delicious.

Under the name 'white bait' or 'chokka' you can buy them as bait for a fishing trip.

Lovely shot of a lovely delicacy.
Ginnie Hart: It's all yours, Louis, because I'll simply take your word for it. HA!

Great photo, but Ugggggggggggggggg!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Pauline...and I know!
Mmm I like octopuses!
You should try takoyaki one day.
Ginnie Hart: Uhhhhhh...I don't think so, LC, but thank you. I'll leave it all for you!

Looking at that could almost turn me vegetarian!!
Ginnie Hart: My sentiment exactly, Cherry!
I actually like squid...if that's what it is! But cooked of course. smile
Ginnie Hart: I have been known to eat fried squid/calamari, Robin, but this is octopus, which I don't think I've ever eaten (unless it was slipped in without my knowledge). Apparently they serve this in Japan uncooked, with the pieces still squirming on the plate when served. sad
