It's not Christmas without tentacle..

I drove up to NJ today to spend Christmas with the family. It was an interesting drive. One of the traditions in an Italian Catholic family like ours is fish on Christmas Eve. Traditionally, it's 7 fishes, but given my parents age and health problems, not to mention the fact that most of us don't like most of the fish anyway, we are down to 3. My brother and I helped out with the cooking - I cut a ton of garlic, while my brother made the traditional Calamari (squid) in tomato sauce - featured above, served over spaghetti. It's actually pretty tasty, but it's not the most ascetically pleasing dish around.
