and maybe one for Sriracha hot sauce. And Diet Coke. Ok, scratch that last request, since I am trying to wean myself off of it :-/. Speaking of olive oil, here are two more Italian inspired dishes, heavy on the oil! One is grilled, marinated eggplant with pine nuts, and the other is something new. Something I RARELY make! Fish :-D!! They're sardines. I seem to be somewhat obsessed with making sardines, and I don't know why. I don't eat them much anymore, but sometimes, when I was little, gramps would open a can of them, add soy sauce, a side of rice, and I would tuck in, very happily. The little bones never bothered me...but then, I have been known to eat shrimp, shell and all, including the heads (my favorite part!). Try not to gag!! Actually, I have gagged before, on a shrimp head. You know those sharp, pointy things that stick out of it's head? It harpooned me in the roof of the mouth. There was a bit of blood, and a shitload of pain!!
