-What do you call a fish with no “eyes?”

– Fshhhhhhh!

I know this joke is a little corny but I love it. I heard it on How I Met Your Mother (love that show) and couldn’t stop laughing. Saying it out loud is a lot funnier than reading it, by the way.

I really don’t know how I got fish tacos from this joke (other than “fish”) but I suddenly started craving fish tacos after the episode. I immediately  put it on my shopping list and made it the next time hubby was working all day. I should explain, he doesn’t like seafood or smell of seafood so I make it for myself when he is not home.

I usually prefer to make my on sauce or dressing. Simply, because I don’t use them often enough to buy a whole bottle. After throwing away jar after jar of sauces, I started making my own. The best part is that it tastes so much better too!

    I NEVER buy tartar sauce anymore! I totally agree-never go thru it, so I might as well make it myself :) These look super delicious and can’t wait to try them! Thanks for sharing.
