Pete's in Mississippi this week and that means I don't feel like cooking. After a couple of nights of chicken nuggets I wanted to do something different. So I started thinking back to when I was a kid. I wondered if there were ever nights when my mom didn't feel like cooking. My dad was gone a lot too.
Well, we had fish sticks and tater tots.
Mac and Cheese.
hmmm, what else.
Oh yeah tuna on toast.
Sooo cheap and easy.
I asked my mom for the recipe because I wanted to try it out.
If you see this recipe on every cooking blog tomorrow, just remember that you saw it here first.
add 4 T of flour
mix in 2 cups of milk
add a can of tuna
pour over a slice of toast
The kids loved it and it must have cost like less than $2 to make, which is good because I just found out I will spend $4000 at the dentist tomorrow.
Yup, I am the mom with 5 kids who makes tuna on toast and needs serious dental work.
I remember once when I was little, we were eating tuna on toast and my dad unexpectedly walked through the door at dinner time. My mom sheepishly served him a plate. He looked at and said, "What is this?"
"Tuna on Toast!" we all shouted.
I don't remember what he said, but after that we all called it SOS.
