Not temperature, spice. Sardines in hot sauce on sale at the grocery store. The Mouse tried sardines in hot sauce before, not a favorite, but he has been watching a lady on YouTube attempt to raise her spice tolerance. The Mouse thought give the sardines another try. Plus the whole lunch was cheap eats. Hee hee.


Normally, The Mouse would throw the sardines over steamed rice, but because the sardines were packed in hot sauce, not oil, the Mouse thought might be better with instant noodles (the fried noodles adding the oil factor). Normally, The Mouse tries to stay away from instant noodles.

Cooked the noodles, 1/3 of the soup packet, sardines without the sauce (too spicy), mustard green stem.


The hot sauce was more vinegar-y than spicy. The Mouse still not a fan, but it was okay. The Mouse prefers the oil packed sardines. But the picture turned out nice. Hee hee.

So, a dollar for the sardines, less than fifty cents for the noodles (The Mouse only used half a package, a couple of cents for the mustard greens. Cheap eats indeed! 🙂

Stay safe and well.
