So, I defrosted some baby squids I got at Grandmart and cut their tenacles off. No problem there. They were baby squid so the tenacles could be cut off with one slice. I put the tenacles and scallops in the food processor and processed them. I sauteed onion (I have never used more onions in my life prior to cooking Mike Isabella!), added shiitake, garlic and salt. I mixed the tenacles (never have written the word tenacles as many times as in this sitting) with the mushroom mixture, along with bread crumbs, lemon zest and basil. I was a loser girl and did not fill a ziplock bad with the stuffing and cut off a corner to fill the baby squid, but instead used my fingers and a spoon. It was kind of ugly. Anyway, got them stuffed, covered them with the "grand mother" tomato sauce and cooked them at 375 for 35 minutes. They really smelled like bait! I ate a couple and Josh ate a couple, but they were really fishy. Don't know what went wrong in execution, but zero results. Hug a vetran tomorrow. We had hoped to go to Grafiato, but John has school at 1400, so don't think we can pull it off.
The stuffed squid!
