Ratbag sis & bro

Well, the chef never turned up and the hotel was a great reminder of Fawlty Towers on acid so it was worth going to. However, I am not sure that I will ever eat octopus again, having learned that they are immensely intelligent...

A couple of  local ladies tell me you have to "frighten" the octopus three times to make sure it is tender for the cooking process. How do you give an octopus a fright? You dip it in and out of boiling water three times!!!!

I shall return to chomping my way through the rainbow swiss chard patch...

Bit stuck on 'joder'...but v. glad your sense of good taste suppressed the 'dormant faculties' joke.

Your word-verification 'words' are an art-form totally worthy of you.

I'm afraid it is too impolite to translate.

Goodness, that's worse than boiling lobsters which is pretty creepy already.

At first I misread 'gets your ears' as 'gets in your ears' and imagined little bullfights going on in the curly canal bits.

mig: I can't cook lobsters but I can eat them but I will never be able to look an octopus in the face again.

Ha! Love that little matador

Rosie said...

nursemyra: I enjoyed drawing the matador. You probably recognised it was a copy of a Goya painting...ha, ha.

My daughter works in the aquarium at Newquay and puts its food into a screw top jamjar so it has to open it to get at it!
Great pics Rosie! :)
