Posts Tagged ‘Sardines’

The Mouse, scrounging through the pantry, refridge, and freezer. 🙂

Lunch

Instant ramen (no soup packet), fresh carrot, frozen cauliflower, wakame, sea salt, black pepper, Sichuan pepper, and turmeric. Oh, and a tin of sardines. The Mouse thinks without the sardines, the bowl would have looked less “ugly”. Hee hee. Not only filled The Mouse up, it was tasty too. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Salad? Mixed-up? Dunno, but The Mouse liked. 🙂

Lunch

The last of the Costco shrimp from the weekend, wilted Napa cabbage, tin of sardines, cocktail sauce. Mmm. Not photogenic, but satisfying eats.

Stay safe and well.

The local diner chain month special, katsu SPAM curry rice. The Mouse is intriqued. The line to order is out the door. Nope. Second choice, a ramen shop, fried eggplant curry rice. Closed on Wednesdays. Deep sigh.

Plan C, one pot bowl at home.

Bowl

Pasta shells, frozen peas and carrots, tin of sardines, wakame, salt and pepper, and dash of Worcestershire sauce.

Try again today, maybe.

Stay safe and well.

Fail/Not Fail

The Mouse votes not fail, but the rest of the world? Hee hee.

The Mouse erroneously bought a tin of sardines in water. In his opinion, not a favorite. He decided to try to make pasta with sardines and tomato sauce (Pasta Con Sardine Siciliano), The Mouse looked it up. Hee hee.

Ingredients

The Mouse working off an idea, no recipe (for the most part, The Mouse views recipes kinda like instructions in DIY furniture boxes. Heh heh. Just kidding (maybe).

This was the idea.

Pasta Con Sardine Siciliano

The Mouse cooked the pasta, drained, added smashed the sardines and tomato sauce, dried oregano, salt, pepper, simmered.

The Mouse ended up with kind of a hybrid dish. Part pasta, part soup, part gravy. Tasty with bread.

Tomato Chowder with Pasta and Sardines

You can say it, The Mouse got weird. Hee hee. But there was kinda a reason, the refridge is stuffed, no space for leftover tomato sauce. Had to use the whole can. Would he do it again? Definite maybe. Hee hee.

So if trying to create a recipe? Fail. But if trying to create something tasty? Win. 🙂

Plus the dish wasn’t for company, or even The Cat. Made by The Mouse, eaten by The Mouse. 😉

Stay safe and well.

One of The Cat’s friends sent over toasted garlic.

Picture not the greatest, The Mouse took the picture while the garlic was still in plastic. Not sure if the friend made it herself or she bought it in bulk and repackaged it. No matter. Since The Cat’s digestion and garlic do not play well together, it’s up to The Mouse to test and eat.

The Mouse tried it on his semi-regular lunch.

Pasta, sardines, wakame, toasted garlic. The garlic added taste and texture. Pretty good. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
