>tfw you set the timer the night before on the rice cooker in your bedroom and grab a double clearance can of fish so that you're set to wake up to a nice jingle and the scent of perfectly cooked rice in the morning and don't have to socialize with the rest of the house who are intent on spending their entire sunday not going anywhere
>not realizing "poverty food" is almost always the best-tasting
There's something incredibly satisfying about a big bowl of beans and rice. I'm sad that you can't comprehend that pleasure.
>having to eat poverty food because you spent all your money on a $200 rice cooker
>eating any grains, root or leaf vegetables outside of poverty.
You don't want to seem like a peasant, do you?
I usually only buy the smaller, double layered sardines, but these are actually pretty good.
Mild flavor and really meaty. There's nothing worse than a sardine that turns to mush just while trying to get it out of the can.
Second course is served with banana and mug vodka.
Furikake, Tabasco, and soy sauce.
The sardines are packed in olive oil with salt added.
I went to Xian China and got a good pair of ivory ones after seeing the same pair in a ton of shops and haggling like a star. Lied about what other shops were offering then convinced a shop keep to offer them for cheap. White grrrl getting haggling done. Spent 5 us bucks on that sweet elephant tusk oh shit I'm a horrible person.
So you need to buy a round trip ticket to China and spend all your time haggling to buy a $5 pair of chopsticks that might just end up being confiscated by customs on your return trip?
Sounds legit. Post pics.
Anyone who doesn't at least occasionally eat sardines is missing out.
They're one of the cheapest, healthiest foods you can buy, especially on sale, and keep on hand for years.
Buy anything other than the cheapest, expired gas station brand and sardines wont smell "fishy".
Just don't listen to those anons who always suggest fisherman's eggs; I tried that once and the entire house stank for two days.
Third and final course, served with One a Day vitamin gummy* and mug vodka.
There's really nothing comfier than having hot rice ready to eat at any time of the day.
>*serving size: two gummies
From least to most offensive canned fish:
Anchovy > Tuna >Sardines > Cat food > Salmon
I've had a can of pic related sitting around for a couple months.
How do they compare to sardines?
>something incredibly satisfying about a big bowl of beans and rice
While I entirely agree, you also have to realize that there are adults in this world who have gone through their entire lives without experiencing real hunger.
How so, though?
They were on sale a few months back and I bought a couple cans.
Last canned/jarred fish I bought from that store (lots of Easter European/Russian shit) was pickled herring that was disgusting, and I like pickled herring.
I love both rice and sardines, the mix not so much. Note im talking about canned sardines, grilled sardines work great with rice even though they are better with potatoes. Helps that grilled sardines are a staple food in my region and ive been eating them since I remember
It's not sad. It's delicious. But it takes two days to get the fish smell out of the house. Often served with mustard.
