Anchovies...You SEXY little fish!

Little fish in tins: LOVE or HATE?

I admit it. I'm 50 and I don't believe I have ever purchased a tin of anchovies until a week ago. I found a recipe for a white bean and radish salad in Bon Appetit  and thought it looked so yummy I vowed to make it...anchovies be damned! I know anchovies mostly because of my 'pop-culture' addiction. How many sitcoms have I watched where a character orders a pizza, and has uttered the phrase: 'Hold the anchovies'?

My niece and her family came to visit a week or so ago. She knows I like to cook, and she has a garden. She arrived with a huge bag of mixed lettuce, some tiny pickling cukes(be still my Ukrainian heart), some fresh fruit, and a HUGE zucchini.

She is a VERY GOOD niece!
