Sardine sandwich

Eastside Road, October 27, 2012—
WE'LL FEAST TWICE tomorrow; we have a long drive and a roller derby tonight; let's just have a sardine sandwich for dinner. Lindsey toasts the bread, as you see, and spreads one surface with a little prepared mustard, the other with that nice Dutch mayonnaise she buys in tubes.

With the smashed-up sardines from the can, thinly sliced onions. Surely the sardine sandwich is one of the Hundred Plates. Afterward, a salad of small "wild" arugula, its vinaigrette including chopped scallions instead of garlic. Later in the evening, a Crane melon.
