Didi's Grilled Baby Tako

Hooo, almost forgot to post something today.  This is what's happening.  I'm finally gonna get to use the baby headgear that I've been making!  I have a baby shoot (GIRL!!) scheduled in a couple of weeks.  Only thing is Jose Roces, the awesome photographer who let me tag along with him on a few shoots awhile back, wants to buy a bunch of my stuff!  So now I gotta get crackin' and make more!  Holy moly!

Anyway, this was super, super ono.  The taste was kinda unexpected . . . more Mediterranean than Oriental.

Didi, I just went to Kaimuki Dry Goods and saw some of the same stuff you gave me to use as embellishments. They're soooo expensive! No way I would charge you. But I know you. . . you no like take away from my supply. But no worry, especially if it's for Baby Samantha . . .
