Not the first (or even the second) grocery store to appear on this blog, Stop and Shop is celebrating Talk Like a Pirate Day a bit late this year.
Thanks to Stefanie! And did you know that over here, arugula is known as rocket?

For the longest time, I was confused as to why my British-published cookbooks kept calling for flying objects, but then I figured out that they were just asking for spicy little arugula. I should have gotten the clue when I noticed they called peppers “capsicum.” Those wacky Europeans!
It’s a Hispanic Arugula! I knew about arugula being called “rocket” in Europe mostly from Nigella Lawson. I learned a lot from her. Zucchinis are called Courgettes and Eggplants are called Aubergines. I used to be called “Rocket” by a little boy who couldn’t pronounce my name.
