Before WWII the humble sardine was an American dietary staple. Canneries lined the coastal regions of the states and even served as the locale of a great American novel.
Somewhere along the way the lowly pilchard fell out of favor - replaced by the sleek tuna and a more glamorous American diet. When I was growing up densely packed canned of sardines in several flavors were still available in the grocery aisles. They were easily packed into our saddle bags or our pockets for long days at the lake.
Now as many of us are living with the effects of the high carbohydrate American diet these tiny fish are suddenly more interesting - unfortunately just a decade or so after most of our American canneries have closed.
I haven't purchased a can of sardines in years, but they are on my most current grocery list. They are high in vitamins, omega 3s, calcium and environmentally friendly. Maybe they should be on your list, too?

In a pinch: I have a few friends who can’t eat wheat. Quinoa is a perfect substitute for Wheat Bulgur! Use 1 cup uncooked quinoa. Follow recipe on the box. Let cool. Place in a bowl. Add above ingredients follow recipe directions. Mix well. Cover and chill until dressing is absorbed. Enjoy!
Every time we'd visit my grandmother as kids she'd make stoemp and sausage for us, and we'd grind mounds of parsley on top. She doesn't cook a lot of things, but this simple Belgian recipe was guaranteed to be on the table at least one night we were there-- and sometimes she'll still make it when we're visiting together. It's a nice, easy meal that I've made a bunch in college too! Most of the ingredients are things I tend to keep around anyway, and the sausage could be substituted for other kinds of sausage or really anything else you like! And the best part, it always tastes like family and home.
