Donna, I am actually the other italian who hates calimari. Actually, I hate all seafood.
I live off of pizza. Believe it or not, there are a few (2 or 3 ) really decent pizza shops here. They are few and far between. I even found one here in Arlington (home of the Texas Rangers!) that makes white pizza. MMMMM. Ah Luhv it!
The rest of the italian food here stinks. The sauce is too sweet, not cooked enough, bland, etc. etc. So I have to make a pot of sauce on Sunday just to have a decent bowl of pasta!
