Does anyone but ELV remember when you were supposed to eat fish on Fridays?
ELV remembers, of course, because he’s always been a very devout fellow.
When he was but a little shaver, the big guy (or gal) in the sky seemed to be decreeing meatless Fridays all the time.
This did not sit well with the carnivore kid.
So, one of the ways his parents found to get him to eat fish — besides in the loathsome form of Mrs. Paul’s fish sticks — was tuna fish sandwiches.
ELV liked tuna fish sandwiches. He still does.
In fact, you might call tuna fish sandwiches the first fish he ever liked. To this day, when he wants a quick meal, a small can of tuna mixed with some onion, relish, mayo and some herbs always fills the bill.
Until we ate RM Seafood’s tuna melt, we thought we made the perfect tuna fish sandwich. But we must admit, theirs is better, especially if you like your tuna salad on the mayonnaise-y side, as we do. Melting some good cheddar over the top, and serving it on a ever-so-sweet slab of brioche is the perfect touch….as are the exquisite, light, crisp and slightly salty, fresh made chips.
God, being the frugal sort, would also approve of the price — only $16 — as she would of Pastry Chef Theresa Gwizdaloski’s deconstructed s’mores. It being the sum of all childhood sweets on a slab — made both adult and thought provoking — no mean feat that.
Both of these Friday treats were soooo ethereally tasty, we almost saw….well…you get the idea.
Just thought you’d like to know.
