101 Simple Meals: #74 (kind of)

Description: “Canned sardines packed in olive oil on Triscuits, with mustard and Tabasco.”

#74 (sort of): anchovy on a Triscuit

Notes: Yeah, that’s clearly an anchovy and not a sardine, isn’t it? I didn’t actually, oh, look at the list until I sat down to write this entry.

That being said, before trying this, I’d never actually eaten an anchovy before. It was… pretty good. They smelled like Lynn Beach in August, but they tasted considerably better. Salty, chewy, a little fishy — not bad.

And, to the amazement of my husband and I both: the kid ate an anchovy. The whole thing. And said it was “really good.” Go figure.

Rating: I need a do-over on this one.
