Hooked on a feeling

Not a day goes by here at PP without a story. Here's one of today's: our Sous Chef was cleaning a big honkin' local grouper (big honkin,' that's the scientific name). There, in the belly of the grouper, was a smaller fish, about 6 or 7 inches long. In the mouth of the smaller fish was the ENORMOUS hook. (Pictured with dime for size reference.)

What a world. That little fish survived the GIANT HOOK of humans only to get eaten by a big honkin' grouper that, in turn, got caught by humans. 'Tis ponderous.

In other Fish news, I sampled the new madeleine bread made by Pastry Chef Susie Ieronemo. Madeleine pastry, red onion and cilanto. It's quite divine.

And now to sports! Members of the PP staff, including yours truly, got trounced at our arena soccer game last night. However, Executive Chef and goalie Nico Romo took a turn at offense last night and SCORED! GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL! It was very exciting and I only WISH we had video of his victory dance. Priceless.

The rest of the game was rough. We got muscled all over the place, and some yahoo who apparently is still working out some angst from junior high, drew back, blasted the ball in my face and bloodied my lip. Um, this is a recreational team, sir, not the World Cup. Ease up.
