    Doesn't have to be bland at all. I just needed to tone it down for myself.

    Avocado was optional, but it was a way to make sure hubby wouldn't ask for a share, LOL.

    I "get" him. Avocado has never seemed to be my friend. It is known, by me, to restrict me to my home/bedroom....if you know what I mean.

    You know what's really interesting is that just last night, I was thinking about sardines in mustard! Haven't had any of that in YEARS (college days). Touch it up with a little hot sauce, a few crackers on the side, and I'm good to go!!

    I'm also not a fan of the taste or texture of the beloved avocado. Even avocado potato chips have been know to set me free!

    I wasn't a huge fan until I discovered that filets don't have the bones in them. The bones were what skeeved me out. I like them in mustard on a cracker. I'm trying to cut back on bread, but that recipe sounds good to me. I LOVE avocados.

    The bones in the sardines are a good source of calcium. I don't want the crunch of the backbones so I remove those. The rest of the bones are so tiny I don't consider them noticeable. The only bread I do is Ezekiel 4:9. No flour, just assorted sprouts. Made another batch today. I'm really enjoying it. Open faced feels more special than a closed sandwich.

    Should be lots of other things you could use than bread or crackers. Celery sticks? Stuffing for large mushroom caps? Put through a blender the spread might work as a salad dressing or the start of one.

    I knew someone would mention that about the bones but I eat a LOT of leafy greens like kale , arugula, watercress, etc. and they have loads of calcium. If the bones are going to put me off eating them, I'm better off getting the filets.

    Re: General Food Talk

    Made that horrendous trek to the grocery store yesterday....that pre-frigidity/storm trip, and it was horrible! When I saw a guy come to grab a cart out of the parking lot, when I arrived, the first thing I did was grab cart when I got out of my car; I always try to park next to the cart-return space. There were NONE available inside the store. I couldn't believe people were just standing around waiting for carts to come in. I spent $150, but I finally got my Hebrew Nationals and a box of Constant Comment tea and toilet tissue!! I am good to go!

    They ought to install one of those "K-Mart special" flashing lights at the cart-returns when there are, repeatedly, none available in the stores.

    I got a gig bag of onions a few weeks back and I have kept them where is cold so today I slices up a bunch and am carmelizing them. Gonna make some french onion soup and use the rest to put on top of meat patties. I still have a bunch to cut up and do something with.

    I haven't had sardines in many years, but I recall when I was a kid my dad used to eat them a lot. He would put them on crackers and eat them as a snack. I thought it was so cool and so he would share them with me. I didn't know any other kids who loved sardines! lol Maybe, I'll try them again.
