Oh, was there bloop blooping! Blooping all over the house. Blooping at each other. Blooping in the bath. Such a great activity! Thanks, Ms. Christie, and Henry.
*OK, simple yes. But still, like most Julia Child recipes there's lots of room for interpretation. One: I did not blow up the balloons nearly as much as Ms. Christie Illustrated. 2. I taped the tentacles on in the middle so they would be more numerous but not as long as intended. I chalk it up to a lesson in "it was fun so it was OK."
