Let me first throw this pic of some aforementioned King Oscar "Tiny Tots". No review. I was hungry. They, as always, did not disappoint. That wad of cheese is some crazy goat cheese I got from the Boise Co-op. Now for the review.....

Bumble Bee Sardines in Hot Sauce.  Well, Leave it to me to bring things down a notch, keep it old school. It's up to me to bring things back to the hobo camp and leave all the artsy-shartsy behind....for now.

These sardines are totally run of the mill, purchased from my local discount food mart. They're cheap and for a good reason. They were firm, but kind of dry even though smothered in hot sauce. I'm not sure I would have called it "HOT" sauce, really. Even with the sauce they lacked flavor and were very uninspiring. Also, they seemed more "gutsy" than most. There were innards floating everywhere. A little gross.

But they look OK, right?  While not  total wash, I think there are better fish out there at the same price point. It's time to hit the Italian market downtown. Ciao!

Two Tins.

Combine ingredients in a bowl, eat.
