Sardines. Sardines?!

If you can believe this, E has already left me again - this time to spend a few days camping in Zion with our friends who are visiting from the East Coast. Sadly, I had to stay home as I used up all my vacation + some when we were in Italy.

So while I have a few more days of freedom, I wanted to try a food that I'm pretty sure he won't try (and, to be honest, I was a little scared to.

Inspired by KERF, I bought Sardines.

yuck. [or so I thought]

I followed her video tutorial. Whole in a can, sardines look pretty gross, but I chopped them up and within seconds it looked just like tuna! [The flavor is so much richer and more moist than tuna.]
Thr secret ingredient made this recipe for me though - curry powder! It's going to be a new staple in my tuna/sardine salads. So good!

served it up with roast zucchini while I caught up with SYTYCD.

Would you ever try sardines? What about anchovies?

p.s. tomorrow I'm really excited to share my first thrift-store DIY remake! (a la Sarah, the queen of Revival Files)

I love sardines! I eat them straight out of the can on crackers. Delish! So much better than canned tuna! They're really healthy for you and very filling!

And thanks for the curry idea. I never thought of putting it in tuna!!

Interesting. I don't know if I'm that ballsy, but your photos certainly make it look delicious! I've tried an anchovy on top of a salad once.. and had to drink 3 glasses of water because of how crazy salty it was!
