Friday Q: Sardines, Marrow & Tastebuds

My tastebuds have recently changed. I no longer like cream cheese or my once favorite, vanilla coffee. Even my own bagels, once frozen and reheated, taste of glue. Yuck.

Instead, I enjoy baked bone marrow with garlic. Another new one for me is wild sardines (cold or cooked). Now I'm thinking of ways to incorporate both yummy treats into different meals.

How about you? Any new tastebud changes? Do you eat sardines? How about bone marrow with garlic?

Do tell.  Do tell.

  1. Don't eat either. In fact, I've never heard of eating bone marrow.
    There are certain vegetables I used to despise, like mushrooms, that I enjoy now. I still say Brussels sprouts are disgusting though.

    1. Sure can. Nose to tail eating. Good stuff if you can stomach it.

      Mushrooms is one of those things I hear people love or hate. I wonder if it's the taste or texture.

      I never met a vedge I didn't like, ever.

    1. Hope you get that robot stuff worked out. As I say, I never fill in any of those boxes or check the robot and my comments go right through.

      Happy Weekend.

  4. I do like sardines but have not had them in many years. Anchovies are also good, but I don't like to overpower a pizza with them.

    1. I had coupons for the anchovies but the store didn't have them. They are on my To Try List.

      How did you like your sardines?

  6. When I was a kid, for lunch I would always want bologna and mustard. I haven't had that in years.

    1. That's a good one. When I first started to eat meat, I tried bologna. Too salty for my buds but I did enjoy it fried.

  7. I don't even know what bone marrows looks like, haven't seen that sold in store around here. Just the thought of it made me want to rinse my mouth... so NO never had, never will have bone marrow. It doesn't made me judge the one that like it, it made me question their childhood LOL

    For sardine, I think it's fine... in the can!

    1. Meat markets and butchers here sell the bones along with suet. We've got lots and lots of meat and bone fans in my area.

      Glad your pizza worked out.

    1. Hi Jan - I'm not against carbs and enjoy grain-based and seed-based bakes. That being said, yes, cauliflower is a all the rage these days. Trending on super speed, and with good reason.

  11. I should eat sardines because they are so very good for you but I hate them so much I actually feel like crying when I just open a can. I think they are probably the grossest food ever. That and black licorice.

    1. I went with the ones without heads and bones. I don't mind the bones but the heads sorta bug me out.

  12. I love any fish and bone morrow is a huge treat. Love it.
    The one thing don't like any more is cinnamon. When the markets make the cinnamon buns with all the thick sugar topping on the smell make me gag. Once I eat it I am sorta ok but the smell is awful. Son has even cut in half the amount in his curry.
    When I hit menopause this happened.

    cheers, parsnip

      Nice that Son has cut it down for you.

  13. I love salmon, but never liked tuna...and I used to like sardines but don't like them much at all anymore.

  14. I love sardines. My dad used to clean/prepare and marinate them in a vinegar/oil type setting. So delicious! He taught me the recipe before he died and I used to make it for my own family. Hubby LOVES it. It's been awhile and this reminds me that I should do it again.
