Delicious

Ummm, Um, Um, ....nothing says "Greece' more than that delicious smell of freshly grilled squid or octopus wafting over the seaside cafes of any Greek isle harbor. Freshly grilled with a little olive oil, add a quick squeeze of lemon and oh my oh my - what a delicious treat. Throw in the iciest, coldest bottle of Mythos beer possible and in that moment one could not conceive of any greater pleasure. If it is lunchtime in Greece - you know where to find me. I'm salivating now just thinking about it! Off to the market for a little Octopus!

Carver said...

That's a new one on me. I've never had squid or octopus. I'll take your word for it that it's delicious. Have a great weekend.

I'm not sure I agree with you ,but you certainly sound like you love it

napaboaniya said...

That's something new I've learnt. Octopus with olive oil..will try it one day. Where I reside, we have them raw with washabi or some sauce :)It's not a Weekend;It's a Lifestyle

mon@rch said...

Hmm, can't say I have ever tried Octopus!

Yen said...

My PhotoHunt post

Prudence said...

I think I'd prefer squid over the octopus, though I like the octopus when it's a sushi. Hehe.

Leah said...

Your description sure does make this squid delicious. I love calamari. It'll be quite an experience to have it this Greek way.

Olivia said...

Great Photo!

But I'm sorry to say it doesn't look or sound too delicious to me!!!

snippets said...

that's a "must-try" recipe! :)

happy hunting!

Expat Traveler said...

i know calamari and that smells great but since I've yet to travel there, I'll just take your word for it!

Dorid said...

hmmmm... I'd have to put that in the "not" side. But there are so many interesting and delicious foods from Greece!

eastcoastlife said...

Michelle Johnson said...

I can't say that I would eat the squid or octopus but, your picture is perfect.

I looked down your page and found so many photos I liked that I will have to come back here again.

That poem about the fallen trees is beautiful. Did you write that or was it by Pablo Neruda like another commenter mentioned? Either way, thanks for sharing that.

Have a nice day.

T.R. said...

Hi Michelle,

That was definitely Neruda. I hope it still says so at the top.

Thanks for stopping by.

Teena said...

May I have some pizza instead :P

Mary said...

Never had octopus or squid. I believe your recommendation being a good one, however - NO THANKS. LOL!

Paris said...

"Who is this clever chap?", I said, when I read your comment on Ree's Quarter Horse post today.

I followed the crumbs to your place, and what a delightful place in the sun it is!

mistyeiz said...
