Something’s fishy…

I totally couldn’t wait for my lunchy today… it will probably seem super gross to most of you, but I’m secretly in love with sardines.  I can’t help it!  I know they might look frightening, very oily and smell a bit fishy, but they’re so so good!  I think I inherited the sardines gene from my mom – she’s addicted to the little guys!  img_18011

I paired my sardines with a small salad with Dijon mustard as the dressing and an apple that I will img_18021be saving for later this afternoon.  Don’t be fooled by the small can size of the sardines, they seriously fill you up for hours!  Disclaimer:  have gum on hand after eating sardines and put the empty can into a ziploc before throwing into the trash under your desk.  Otherwise your co-workers might not be as excited about your lunch as you are. 😉
img_180311Yum…  I don’t know why I am so addicted the Dijon mustard, but I totally am!  Hey, question for you guys… What’s your favorite Thanksgiving side dish?  I am trying to come up with something new and yummy for this Thanksgiving (in addition of course to the standard mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry chutney and stuffing).  I was thinking of some kind of squash or tomato soup… I don’t know though – thoughts??  Hope the rest of your day goes by quickly everyone!

    Oooh, have some kind of roasted squash!

    My favourite side dish is mashed potatoes. I’m so boring at Thanksgiving; I only ever eat lots of turkey and mashed potatoes and some homemade buns and then whatever veggies are there. I don’t like gravy or stuffing and that stuff. But SUCH good meals!

    I haven’t had sardines in ages, but I used to love them.

    Favorite dish – sweet potato puree. Heaven.

    My favorite Thanksgiving dish is the sweet potato casserole!

    For the pumpkin biscuits, I actually used Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Baking mix…you can look up the ingredients on the website, or I can let you know the ingredients when I get home!

    Meghan Thanks for getting back to me! No need to look it up, I have to stop by the natural food store this evening so I’ll check it out then… I might experiment by creating my own mix – or cave and just buy it 😉

    Thanks for the suggestions guys… I was leaning towards a squash dish, but now it’s decided! Now on to dreaming up the perfect recipe… 🙂
