love.

i love pickled herring. who's with me?
did you know you can buy close to a half gallon of it at costco? neither did i until today.

when i saw it hanging out in the pot stickers aisle, i squealed with delight and proclaimed to B, "they have pickled herring!" he didn't care.

anyway, i bought a jar of it, which i opened the second i got home. i quickly ate three pieces before rushing out the door to make my client meeting.

oh, how i'm craving more.

my breath smells nice, too.

    I have never, ever had pickled herring.

    I like smoked salmon...is it similar? Because it scares me that it's in a jar. It really does.

    it tastes nothing like smoked salmon, which i love as well.

    you should try it though. just don't get mad at me if you don't like it :)

    Love pickled herring! Also love tiny tins of sardines in tomato sauce. My co-workers? Not so much...

    ::shuts eyes and shakes head back and forth:: I don't think I can do it! It's in a JAR, PG!

    It skeers me.

    What do you eat it with? Toast? Cheez Its? Apples?

    I love it, but the CostCo-sized jar has been my undoing. :)
    People do think it's vile, but I grew up with it, so it seems a-ok to me. There's a bar in Minneapolis that cracks it out during happy hour. Mmmm.
