A can of anchovies in olive oil at Union Market was $7. No kidding. The same size can, also anchovies in olive oil, at Key Food: two cans for $3. Guess which ones we bought?
Drain the anchovies (1 can) and chop very finely. Also chop very finely one clove of garlic. Mash 3 tablespoons of butter with the blade of the chopping knife. Now mash all three together with the knife until smooth. Spread thinly on slices of baguette. Pour yourself a glass of off-dry, very cold white wine, in this case 'Flying Ace Riesling', 2008 (Mosel).
Best eaten with a close friend.
