Food: Layered Tuna Bake
Okay, Valentine’s Day is over right away and it’s behind to tedious food again . . .
Or is it boring??? It doesn’t have to be!
I occur to consider which there is no such thing as tedious food . . . usually tedious people. You can make usually about anything sparkling if we wish to. Simple mixture can be put together originally to make a far-reaching accumulation of juicy and engaging meals. Simple need not be tedious . . .
Take this stew for instance. Nothing sparkling here . . . baked pasta, tinned tuna, solidified peas, tinned soups, grated cheese, cracker crumbs . . . elementary list of mixture and something we peril any of us has in a cupboards right now.
Put together and layered in a juicy combination, we have a stew which is not usually appreciative to a eye, though quite, quite juicy indeed!
My kids regularly desired this. Sometimes we would supplement a tin of emptied chopped tomatoes for colour and seductiveness as well. Just stir them in to a pasta along with a little chopped open onions. Va Va Voom!
In any case, this is what we had for a repast and even Todd enjoyed. (I consider we can feeling him warming to pasta a bit. Ok . . . may be it is usually in a suggestion of tolerance, though this pasta partner will take what she gets!)
