Ahh man, seriously?

Tuna fish sandwiches got “ripe” enough in the coat room after 4 hours, but sardines? Ack. Don’t even what to think about that.

Incidentally, the only time a nun got REALLY mad at me in 1st grade was when I misprounced the word “ace”. I opted for the short vowel sound... yeah... didn’t go over real well.

I guess they had enough salt in them to last the morning.

Don’t get me wrong, I ate them without incident dozens of times.....Must have been some pre existing condition that particular day.

My daughter and I used to joke about getting my mom/her grandma gifts - “Be careful what you buy Grandma, because you are probably going to inherit it”, so we always shopped with care and made sure it was something we really liked as well. Now I tell my kids the same thing. Although there is truly nothing I need, they do seem to put more thought into gifts.

It’s great that you get him a bag of “odds and ends”. These are obviously things that mean a lot to him but that he probably wouldn’t make a special trip to buy on his own. Older people also appreciate it if their kids just spend some time with them. Play a game of cards, take them for a drive to special places, maybe even endure a game of Bingo or rent a movie from their era and watch it with them. Older ones who have their home, like me, really appreciate the younger ones spending an afternoon working on the yard or changing out filters on the A/C. It’s easier to buy a gift but the giving of time means more.

I had it on good authority that the sardine factory closed for a lack of skilled help. The guy that squeezed the poop out of the sardines before they were processed and canned died and they couldn’t find a American citizen to take the job although several illegal immigrants had applied for the job.

I like them packed in Louisiana Hot sauce. Then I put them on a plate and sprinkle Old Bay seasoning on them. Not a grilled tuna steak, but pretty good for something that comes out of a can and is ready to eat in a minute.

The author of this screed is rather poorly informed.

Sardines are still fairly flying off the grocery shelves. Most stores are out of them or almost out, most of the time.

Funny thing about the Monterey Bay Aquarium: They owe their existence to the fact that the sardine fishery on the west coast got fished out.

An old friend and I sponteneously went into a Dollar Tree store to play the “Dollar Store Challenge”... pick any $1 item as the most ridiculous gift to give to the other person... exchange gifts outside... hilarity ensues.

I bought a tube of “Baby Butt Paste”... she bought a can of Mackerel.

I saw it on the shelf tonight when I was making dinner... still makes me smile.

Sounds like something I will try. I like sardines. Haven't had some in quite some time. A trip to the store to become reacquainted is in order. Will pick up some smoked oysters, as i like those too.

What pray tell is Baby Butt Paste? Something like zinc oxide? I have a white elephant gift exchange every December for a bunch of girlfriends and neighbor ladies. Started out as eight of us - last year it was up to 22. May have to change from white elephant to a Dollar Tree Challenge. What a hoot!

Walmart is now selling a new "bagged" version of sardines.    They are cheaper than most canned sardines there (under a buck a bag).    They must not be the "top of the line" sardines.    :-)

(This message goes out to all culinary connoiseurs with discriminating palates for sardines and other seafood delicacies...)

” Does one eat the whole fish, including tail, or do you cut off the head and tail? LOL”

You eat everything in the can. Heads have been removed, but not tails. They’ve been cooked so that the little bones are mushy, like canned salmon. You don’t really know you are even eating bones because they are so soft. Excellent, excellent source of calcium.

I love sardines, but like ‘em plain with a simple sauce like mustard or Tabasco or even Mayo. Quite frankly, even as a sardine lover, these recipes all look really nasty to me.

Very enjoyable post, my friend. Thank you.

My Pop used to love canned sardines. I never tried one, but I remember always being repulsed my the mere sight and smell of them.

They reminded me of the Civil War. Seriously.

My husband (a prolific poster on FR) (and will not be pinged because screw him) is wondering what in the hell I’ve been laughing my sizeable ass off at this evening.

We really are just a bunch of overgrown 3rd graders, aren’t we? I love youze guyze.

My son was recently mentioning getting some of that “white stuff” to use when he is out in the son for extended periods. I said, “You mean zinc oxide”? That was it. Not all the Dollar Tree’s have the same thing but I’m going to see if ours has this BBP - I’ll just tell him it was left over from when he was a baby some 45 plus years ago and is multi-purpose - but it’s still good.

Kippers and sardines are both small herring.

Kippers are split, gutted, butterflied and cold smoked. They tend to use slightly larger fish for kippers.

If you get the ones marked “Kipper Snacks” or “Kipper Fillets” they will also be headless and tailless and in that fashion they fit nicely on a sandwich. (Like toasted Rye with a slice of tomato and very, very thin onion.)

I love sardines, they are some of the best trapping bait you can use. Coons, coyotes, fox and bobcats love them. Nothing stinks worse than an open can of sardines.
