Tuna Salad and a Change of Plans



Yesterday's big "Family Holiday Fun Day" got side tracked by a stubborn flu like illness sweeping through our household.

What was suppose to be all of us setting out to find and cut down the perfect Christmas Tree... turned into my staying home with the kids, taking temperatures and seeing they got some sleep.

While both children napped (so their little bodies could fight off the germs) I made myself this simple tuna fish sandwich.



My husband came home with a beautiful tree and helped himself to some tuna salad on Triscuits.



We managed to get the tree up and make a homemade beef stew for dinner.

All in all... a very quiet day.

(tree and stew post coming soon...)

Basic Tuna Salad

2 cans (7 oz. each) Solid White Albacore Tuna packed in water, drained and flaked
1 stalk of celery, finely diced
2 Tablespoons onion, finely diced
1/2 cup quality Mayonnaise
Kosher Salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Mix all together and enjoy. As simple as it gets. ;)

A sad day in the household. I remember the excitement we had as kids picking out the tree.

Tuna salad isn't much of a consolation prize... but it's close.

Hope you are all feeling much, much better soon.

Tuna salad looks wonderful.

This is what I don't like about winter, viruses. I hate being sick and hate my son being sick. It gives me such a hard time. I hope your little flowers will get better soon. In the meantime this tuna salad is perfect for you.

I am impressed you made anything! When my kids are sick I can't function in the kitchen. It's so hard when they are not 100 percent. I love the simplicity of your tuna salad. I often look for deals on frozen tuna steaks. I buy them when they are cheap and then thaw them out for tuna salad. It's not much more money than using canned tuna and it seems very decadent. My older son loves "fresh" tuna salad! Speedy recovery!!! You will be good as new soon. Xoxoxo

Considering you had two sick kids it sounds like you accomplished pretty much to me!
