"Now there's three things you can do in a baseball game: You can win or you can lose or it can rain." ~ Casey Stengel
grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from
the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a
quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family
fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!
Our 8-year-old grandson is busy with baseball season… so frustrating this year that it seems to be raining for so many practices and games! Had a nice day last Saturday, when he pitched an inning with 9 pitches and 3 outs! Today we are taking him to the Science Museum to see Tornado Alley IMAX movie I have been wanting to see all year!
RECIPE OF THE WEEK
I had a craving for tuna salad and thought of this recipe I used to love from Pillsbury's Soup & Salad Cookbook from 1969! I haven't made it for ages, I think it may be time… the original recipe called for canned pineapple and peas which works fine, but fresh/frozen would be my preference now. I cringe when I think of using 'Real Lemon' instead of fresh lemons, which is what I did when I first made it… it's hard to remember when fresh fruits and vegetables were not so readily available year-round.
PINE-A-RONI TUNA SALAD
- 3/4 cup dry macaroni, cooked according to package directions
- 1/2 cup (1 small) chopped onion
- 1 medium stalk celery, chopped
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- 1 heaping cup chopped fresh pineapple (or 8 3/4 ounce can pineapple tidbits, drained)
- 1 can (6 1/2 ounces) tuna, drained and flaked
- 1 cup frozen peas (or 8 ounce can peas, drained)
In large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except peas; mix well. Add peas, toss very lightly. Chill before serving. If desired, garnish with tomato wedges ro radish slices.
