...does that even go? He seemed happy enough with it this morning but now imagining the horror that he may reveal as lunchtime approaches.......

amck5700 Tue 25-Sep-12 12:05:53

Just a bit meatier that a tuna mayo I would have thought?

amck5700 Tue 25-Sep-12 12:07:47

squeaky, he hasn't tasted it yet!!

There was left over swordfish which he had for dinner last night, but it was hot with butter and lemon last night. I just mashed it upo with some mayo and lemon this morning thinking it'd be a bit like tuna didn't look like tuna mayo though.

Why boak? You eat tuna and mayo, non?

Swordfish a d mayo should be fine confused.

imnotmymum Tue 25-Sep-12 12:08:29

Did you try it ?

amck5700 Tue 25-Sep-12 12:08:38

hope so narcolepsy

And lemon mayo? envy sounds good to me.

Are you afraid it looks boaky then?

tinned tuna is very different to fresh tuna though..

As long it doesn't still have the sword attachedwink, it'd be like any other fish sandwich. It's been a while since I've eaten swordfish but IIRC the taste/smell isn't overpowering. Should be fine, unless he gets into trouble for using his lunch as a weapon...

nah, I dont really like fish tbh. he likes fish - we all had Lasagna last night he doesn't like it so had the fish instead but there was too much for one dinner.

Love swordfish. That's a posh sarnie he's got.

amck5700 Tue 25-Sep-12 12:12:29

Drink, yeah. Tho to be fair it's prbably the mayo rather than the fish that I am thinking is the issue. He likes tinned mackerel in olive oil on his sandwiches straight from the tin. But the swordfish looked a bit dry - maybe I should have put a bit olive oil on it instead?

amck5700 Tue 25-Sep-12 12:13:56

lol - no swordfish still attached - it was a steak type bit of fish - just like tuna steak but not like tinned tuna, you are right squeaky

Ooh stealth boast!

amck5700 Tue 25-Sep-12 12:16:10

mum11970 It wasn't too bad - it was about £2 for two reasonable sized slices/steaks, he had the bigger of the two for dinner last night (with cheesy pasta so not toooo healthy grin)

Yanbu. He is 12. Don't they usually just inhale their food without thinking about it? love swordfsh and lived on it in Italy. It's meaty...he'll be happy.

amck5700 Tue 25-Sep-12 12:18:06

Ooh stealth boast!

not at all pombear - I was just sitting with a cheese and ham sandwich and couldn't get the thought that his sandwich looked a bit odd! No salad and it's on white bread shock

amck5700 Tue 25-Sep-12 12:20:00

BigFat - lol - sometimes he does, he has a bit of an issue with some foods though - he cannot eat any fruit that is in the slightest way imperfect and he examines it thoroughly and he also doesn't like certain foods touching - even if he likes them both!!

Sounds right posh grin I don't see what is wrong with it though I havnt eaten sword fish does it taste tunay confused you will know when he storms home throws the sandwhich at you and says IM STARVIN if he liked it or not

amck5700 Tue 25-Sep-12 12:22:58

....Mrsjay - he's 12, he's always starving!

Mrsjay Tue 25-Sep-12 12:23:55
