Sardine Tacos

I can imagine some of you have cringed and said, "Yuck!" For me, the health benefits outweigh the "yuck" factor.  I have actually come to enjoy the little buggers. The husband still needs convincing, but he that last night's dinner is helping him along.
First off, the usual is sardines on toast or in pasta. All well and good, but I wanted something different. So I began to search like crazy and on some food blog, I think Chow, someone suggested using it in a taco. Now that sounded very interesting.
The recipe was a hit.
I did do some tweaking with the ingredients. Instead of corn tortillas I used habanero-lime ones from Trader Joe's and also go my sardines there. I did not have coriander seed so I just used ground up coriander. I used Siracha in place of having sardines in chili oil and I did not toast the cumin seeds out of sheer did not feel like it-ness. I was going to add cabbage, but the hubby forgot to pick it up. We usually dig cabbage with our tacos and I tell you, there is not doubt in my mind that the pickled onion sauce would go divine with cooked or raw cabbage.

If you are a fan of sardines give this a serious go. Heck, even if you are not a fan, the different flavors may make the fish more palatable and you can play with the ingredients. I cannot say enough about the onion sauce. Seriously, it is that good. Oh, I also had the leftovers over pasta today and they were even more delicious than last night. This recipes is a definite keeper.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.

I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.
