Salt and Pepper Squid

One of my simple pleasures of life, is that usually after the Christmas/New Years holidays there are many products at the grocery store that get marked down.  Below is a small sample of some of these items, and some of the ones that I purchased.  I think that I paid $1.50 for each item which was quite a good deal !!

The pre-packaged “Salt and Pepper Calamari” cooked up in the toaster oven:

Turned out really Pretty good.

So, I decided to try to make my own with the squid rings that I bought.

This would be my lunch for the week so I added some white rice and some baby corn.

Always rinse and inspect your raw Squid !!!!

I don’t mind finding tentacles, but  I definitely don’t want to bite down on a beak or a piece of the cuttle bone that was left in.

Super simple !!!  Corn starch, salt and pepper.

So there’s lunch for the week.  Made up my bento boxes and with a little sweet chili sauce on it, it was a fine lunch.

    Matthew. You paid $1.50 for calamari? Where in the heck do you live? It isn’t like that here in NM that I’ve been able to find! Maybe I’ll go check the Dollar General!
