I’ve never been a big fan of sardines, in fact I’m not a fan at all but Mr S likes them so I’m happy to do my bit. We had a tin of them in and there was a pasta dish in my last food magazine so I thought we were onto a cheap winner.
I put the pasta on the boil. I softened the garlic and onion. I put some halved cherry tomatoes in. Then I put the sardines in. Mr S walked into the kitchen just as I pulled a face of disgust. This mixture smelled so bad that I would have gladly eaten my cat’s food if these were my only choices.
I think my husband may well have thought it was me being picky but after a quick sniff and a taste test it went straight in the bin!
I’d already had a bad day so the thought of starting on something else filled me with dread.
So this was my dinner.
Sardines are not welcome in my home ever, ever again.
