I got a tako from a neighbor fisherman. Have you put a tako onto your cutting board ever? I mean a fresh one, still having yellow glittering eyes as if still living. It was the first time for me preparing tako. I was raised in Akashi city and I’m still living there, which is very famous for seafood, especially tako!
I’ve never prepared it before. I’d been lucky to have someone who prepared it for me. But this time, there was no one but me. So, I did it. I could throw it away! But I did, BECAUSE, Momo had to finish her homework of summer break . That was “a picture of seafood and our town” ! No way,, that is too cliche, isn’t it? And I chose a tako, Umm I’m so cliche as an Akashi citizen.
Anyway let me show you how grotesque it was…..
I was feeling sort of cooking Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean to this moment, BUT after it turned to red colour, I began to feel good!!
It became looking yummy!! Wow! I did it!
Yes! It has become completely A food, not a creepy creature any more! ( Maybe it’s still creepy for some people, though. )
So, I suggested Momo to draw it for her homework.
おいしいたこ means “Yummy Tako”
