Naughty Nonna


I usually keep these silver bowls filled with candy treats for the grandkids.  I really shouldn't as I end up eating it too.

I can't wait to see their faces when they see these little dried anchovies from Myanmar.  What in the world would they do with them?  Snacks?  Fish sauce? Paste?  Actually the last two would be good, but I'm not popping one in my mouth.


PS ~ the weenies can smell them and love to snack on them.  I wouldn't have bet on it.

    2. Thank you Gaye Were they fishy tasting? Like concentrated. I'm a landlubber. Love some kinds of fish and of course shellfish, but not too adventuresome though I do love sushi.

    1. I like fish sauce in some dishes and anchovy paste in puttanesca. But, I'm not eating them like a chip.

    1. I can't wait Amanda. Unfortunately, I had to buy a big bag of them, but I'll keep feeding them to the weenies and toss some in the lake to see what comes for supper.

  8. Now, THAT would be Chris' idea of a candy-dish! I haven't had pizza in about five years, because he LOVES them, and I haven't the heart to tell him that the little stinkers ruin MY half in that little hot-case for the trip from the shop. In a faint hope, I've got several tins and jars of them hanging around, in hopes that I might someday apply them after arrival.

    The teensy pastels are beautiful---I've got about a dozen jars of the Gucci M&M things shaped like pastel pearls, just haven't got the spot on the counter ready (worthy) for such an elegant display.

    1. When in Paris, I was so sick of ham that we went to a pizza place. I thought what the heck, I'll order an anchovy pizza and pick the few off if I don't like them. Well, after the first bite I died. Instead of tomato sauce, they used a thick anchovy paste. I gave my sister a bite and she died too and she loves smoked oysters and sardines. Nevertheless, that pizza wasn't eaten.

  9. At least perhaps one wouldn't have to worry about getting cavities from eating the fish.
