Dried Baby Octopus
If you are thinking invasion of the body snatchers, well you may not be entirely wrong. With their long extensible arms and legs ever ready to snatch anything within their grasp, it might not be so far fetched to think that they could be aliens from a distant galaxy.
Or if you just watched Penguins of Madagascar, then these three baby octopuses might not be so foreign to you. In fact they do look somewhat scary and cartoonish all at the same time if you thought about it now. But I am not introducing them as aliens or clever animation, they are in fact part of my latest tweak to my ABC Soup in an attempt to make the soup flavourful in a natural way.
If you are doing confinement as a newbie mummy, then maybe plain ABC Soup should be suffice. But if you want that extra bit of flavour, then a piece of the dried baby octopus would turn your very simple soup into an artisan masterpiece, worthy of mention in the many social dinners to come.
Hmmm, I can almost smell it now as the soup boils.
