NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and
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.
