Sardines and Seaweed Surprise!

Well surprise and a good deal of yucks were the word around the house since the announcement Sunday that America chose to give the house guests sardines and seaweed for there have not food supplement for the week.

Here is a go at a simple sardine and seaweed salad.  Flavors are balanced and make the sardines somewhat palatable.  I think this would be better with a bit of cheese, but that’s not on the list!

The Wet Seaweed in the Big Brother 13 HouseSardine and Seaweed Surprise


  • 1 tin sardines (drained)
  • 2 Tbsp Mayo
  • 2 Tbsp of strained salsa (rinse it until the sauce is gone)
  • 1/4 cup of seaweed minced (dried or wet)
  • 1 tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 table spoons Relish
  • 2 Tbsp minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon of Dijon Mustard
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


In a bowl place sardines from one tin of plain sardines.  Remove heads and tails if you desire ( I would totally desire!) and mince the remaining meat into smaller bits.  Mix in strained salsa, minced seaweed and set aside.  Mix together mayo, vinegar, relish, fresh parsley, and Dijon mustard.  Pour dressing over sardine salad and mix, do not over dress.  Serve in a small bowl and along side of some Porche’s Spicy Slop Chip.

Adam The Big Brother Elf of the Week!  Hey Adam, why have we not seen you put popcorn on your ice cream like Donna did!  Or make Mega Burgers like from the Peach Pit!

What the Have’s Are Eating!

For the Have’s, it was Brendon’s Three some caramel apples that he made with Rachel and Porche last night.  Brendon started making a caramel sauce again (see yesterdays Heart Attack Popcorn).

Brendon took charge of the caramel, but Rachel saved it when she suggested adding a bit of milk which made it creamier all around, and everyone commented on its smell after it was added.

Rachel chipped in by stabbing the apples and rolling them in the caramel and then the nuts.  Yummy!  Pictured below on the left is Porsche’s caramel slop, which could be consumed because it is all made of the caramel ingredients which were all OK for have-nots!

The finished product, not great looking, but should taste pretty good! We’re gonna keep up with what the big  brother have and have nots are cooking, creating, and doing in the Brother Kitchen!

    • sadly no, I’ve just been introduced to the world of blogging, and I just might go back and re-watch those past seasons, and see what they were up to back then =) Thanks for the suggestion!
