Suddenly I Feel Like Having Sandwiches....

I hate sardines, canned that is. But today, while lazing away on my bed, I thought of doing something radical for the next meal, which may include canned sardines.


I went to the weekly produce market and bought some tomatoes, bird eye chillies and a couple loaves of bread. But of the canned sardines....  well, they don't have the size that I wanted - which is LARGE. So I tossed the tiny cans aside and picked up a large can of mackerel in tomato puree instead.


Arrived home 20 minutes later and started to slice up the tomatoes. And then I tossed a tomato, onion, garlic,  6-7 chillies, two dollops of mayonnaise, the whole can of mackerel and some salt into the blender.... And blended away till all was really smooth and surprisingly, PINK.


So, I put some sliced tomatoes on a bread and spread my new-found blended paste on it, and gave it a bite.... Cool. It was rather good. So I prepared a LOT of sandwiches (by finishing two loaves) and put them all in a plastic container. This I stored in the refrigerator for later consumption.


That's how dinner, and tomorrow's breakfast and lunch (maybe dinner too) is done :)


p.s. - I don't have to take the pictures of said sandwiches. It looks like any other regular sandwiches, minus the garnish and fancy trappings.

Sounds delish! I'd eat that up in a hot second. Odd that it was pink I think.

Cheers,

SLC; I wonder if I can only live on sandwiches alone... :)

You take good care of yourself. That sounds healthy and tasty. And like you say, you have prepared several meals at one time. Smart too.

Okay, here's the thing.

You can't expect people to do nothing after you've just described such a scrumptious sandwich.

So you're gonna have to make me some when I come over to Melaka.

And what is with the Sushi King background music?

Rock Chef said...

Sounds rather good! Might try that myself!

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

TechnoBabe; I just finished my last sandwich I prepared last Saturday.

I might make more soon. But this time, maybe with chicken :P

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Aizan; Let's hope Ibu Nani let us use her house as an experimental kitchen :)

If theres one thing you and I have in common....is the fondness for the good stuff.
I adore good food, and I hate the way some people seem so utterly indifferent to cooking.
In that respect I have a very high regard for the French, for whom good dining is like a religion.
The way they scrutinize and carefully select each ingredient.
Its delight to just watch them cook!!

Oh, you really do a lot of cooking, and for the best, experimenting! This vacation me too am trying to get my hands on 'experimental cooking' :). But it definitely is better when you live on your own.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Vyazz; Love to see cooking shows in the tv too. French cooking rocks, but sometimes it is too fussy in my opinion.

I love Chinese food the best :)

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

et; Cooking for yourself is a good experience. For once, if it was bad, you don't have to blame anyone but yourself :)
