Barcelona Supermarket Wandering

The strike is over, the businesses are open again, and we strolled back to the large Carrefour to buy some more of their house label 100-gram 80% Dark Chocolate bars at 98 Euro cents each after sampling and approving a trial bar last night.

As we wandered, we were impressed in particular by the extensive displays of hams, obviously a specialty that Spaniards clearly appreciate.

We also did some sightseeing among the vegetables and the seafood, even noticing octopus - pulpo - for sale in the pre-packaged area. A recipe for braised octopus in paprika sauce - pulpo a la gallega - can be found here. Of course this octopus is already cooked - cocido - so all you need to know is how to set the microwave.
