tomfoolery: a play on sweetness
To each his own. On we go! I finally found some beautiful ears of bi-color corn, fortunately none with caterpillars still inside, and was ready to make something delicious out of it. I picked up some hot peppers, mint, and parsley root, and was ready to look for one more component from my fishmonger - something sweet (as sweet as seafood can be) to mingle nicely with the corn and other ingredients. Alas, as I rounded the corner, I was confronted with my worst crustacean enemy, and my mouth's best friend - langoustine! The guys with the devil eyes. Sorry buddies, you can snap all you want at me, and have spiky claws, but I'm way bigger than you. Fortunately, their friend, Mr. 15-pound-lobster, was in a separate area - otherwise, there may have been a SERIOUS situation/throwdown at hand. I highly doubt the rubber bands would stop that lobster's claws from breaking loose.
