The Spanish Sardines and my indolence.

Whoooops. I found a bottle of Spanish Sardines on the counter table. Hmmm, I don't eat sardines. I wondered why we have one. When my daughter called, I asked exactly that. She said there's olive oil and noodles, make a sardines pasta. Ohhh. Okay. That is good. I love pasta. Morning came and I checked out the cooking process. Whaaah, that's not much chore but I'd rather mylot. I cooked rice instead. The sardines will suffice for a breakfast meal. Talk about indolence. That's me.

No problem! Sardines go well with both pasta and rice or even in a salad.

@eileenleyva It is very simple. Make any salad you like and throw the sardines in and season to taste.

I love Spanish sardines specifically the tome brand and those Philippine made in bottles coming from the South. I don't like the local canned ones cause they use vegetable oil instead of olive oil that's why they are cheaper but just the same I would settle for them if that is what we have just to kill my craving

@eileenleyva tomato sauce in our cheap sardines look like it's adulterated with coloring and starch. I grew up with Tome, remember the time when almost all our canned good were imported? It's the reason I crave for it from time to time

@louievill am afraid we're on the working side of the city, although not marginalized, the food was not as grand. It grew up with Ligo. Later on, when I had a mini store, I stacked it up with Ligo, red and green. Spicy and ordinary. If Rose Bowl Sardines, the one that comes in oval cans are imported, then, we were rich.

@eileenleyva Ligo is also a U.S. Brand but yes on the budget side, Rose bowl is a bit more more " social" lol at par with the Salmon and Mackarel Hokkaido hahaha..that I really love, I eat it straight from the can and just squeeze calamansi. Those were the days, the poor man's sausage is Philips

I am beginning to look at sardines as an appetizing food. Ha ha. But for a long time now, I couldn't really eat our local sardines. When the Spanish sardines became an item at the grocery, I did wonder if I could eat it. I tried the sardines this morning. Not bad.
