Okay, so on Monday Nick and I went out to Bob's office to check the mail and pick some stuff up. While we were out there we decided to grab a bite to eat. There was the cutest little deli that had a good variety for a pretty good price. While ordering our Fritatas (2 for $.99) and our pigs in a blanket ($.99 each) I commented on how interesting the Rediculously garlicy baby octopus was. The lady asks "Would you like to try some?" I thought, $8.99 a lb. and I don't know if I would ever order it anywhere else - "yeah, sure". So she got a little cup and fork and handed it to me. Nick says "I want some of that". I slowly pulled off a piece for him and gave it to him with the strict instructions "just don't spit it out on the floor". He started eating it and LOVED IT! I did myself as well! It was soooo good, we got some more to go, even at $8.99 a lb., it was that good! The women at the deli were quite impressed with Nick's "mature palet" as was I. We tried to talk Jeff into eating some with us when we got home but he chose not too. It is similar to Calamari but way better and less chewy in my opinion. Alex got in on it for dinner and we all enjoyed it thoroughly. Much better without all the garlic though! I highly recommend it and I will definitely be trying it the next time I see it on a menu!
Alex spent about 25 minutes sucking and chewing the heck out of this thing. In the end he started crying because he couldn't get anything to eat! It was a lot of determination but really amusing to watch, I should have taken video!
(I called it Octopussy, like 007 and someone looked at us funny at the store. For some reason, I couldn't stop calling it that. It was hilarious to hear Nick say it but from now on, we will always have Octopussy - it was way more fun to say too!)
