Please. My Orgasm in Your Mouth cake could kick all of them to the curb, mmhmm(rolls neck)
This week brings us Cynthia's Drunken Octopus:
Cynthia Sestito: "Drunken Octopus "
Things You will need:
8 and 10 quart sauce pot
Large sauté pan
Sharp knife and large wooden spoon
1. Prepare Octopus
1 fresh young octopus (2-3 pounds)
Put octopus under running water. Slit open head to remove ink sac, intestines, and beak.
Wash well and pat dry.
Remove tentacles; peel off the outer thin membrane (skin)
Cut into 1-inch pieces.
2. Sauté Octopus
Sauté in sauce pot over medium heat with
3 tablespoons sweet butter
1 large garlic clove, thinly sliced
1 medium sized yellow onion chopped fine
3. Now add the following
1/c cup chopped celery, no leaves
1 carrot finely chopped
2 sprigs parsley
2 sprigs thyme
6 whole peeled medium garlic cloves
5 cups chicken stock to cover the ingredients
*To cut cooking time down (normally two to three hours) â€¦I have learned the Italian cooks have a trick: take the cork from a wine bottle and add to the saucepan. It will cut the cooking time down by over half.
Cook until tender.
Strain sauce, remove octopus.
1 stick sweet butter to sauce pan over medium heat.
Whisk in 2 tablespoons flour.
Return liquid to this sauce pan; cook over medium heat;
Thicken and reduce by a third.
WHISK and ADD:
1 cup single malt scotch whiskey
1 teaspoon roasted fresh jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped fine
1/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
Salt and pepper to taste
Return octopus to pan, reduce heat until sauce thickened.
5. FINISH Drunken Octopus Dish:
1/2 cup of seeded and chopped fresh tomatoes
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh scallions
Serve over good quality short-grained rice.
Thank God they didn't give us nasty monkfish corndogs for a recipe. That's a nice tribute to Cynthia.

Nnenna...So, you have something good to share with all of us?Originally Posted by Nnenna4TopModel
John: Thanks for the recipe. It looks good....except for the Octopus! Maybe I'll substitute some other kind of seafood. I like calamari, just not the whole disecting of the creature thing. Yech . That's one "puss" I don't like! Besides, not many octopusses available in these parts.

My orgasm in your mouth cake is good, but, sadly, I don't know the recipe anymore. I lost the card it was on, and I have very poor memory.
yes, there's cinnamon schmaps and it tastes pretty good in hot chocolate too. As does butterscotch snapps.That sounds great too. I didn't know there was such a thing as cinnamon schnaps.
And butterscotch snapps tastes good with Kahlua and cream (I just use milk!).
