Talking Tuna

When I was young, my mother would cook up home-made tuna casserole.  It was heaven in a dish.  Even to this day she can make a delicious meal out of a few ingredients. We were a family of 5 kids so my parents had to get creative in order to feed all of us on a budget.  Mom worked full-time but she managed to whip-up scrumptious dishes in snap.  Back then we weren't allowed to be finicky and we certainly didn't go out to eat much.  When supper was on the table, we either liked what was served or we starved. 

Now that I'm a parent, I can't image how it was for mom to have to cook for so many.   I'm a single mom of 2 older teens kids who fend for themselves a lot now, so my cooking isn't in high demand anymore.  My son is leaving to college in a few months and I'm so glad he knows how to cook for himself.  It is time to take a trip down memory lane.  I'm going to cook a tuna casserole this week.  It won't be as good as Mom's, but it will be just fine.  Yum, Yum...can't wait.
