Mama’s Tuna Salad Recipe
Every family has their own recipe for tuna salad. It is a common meal for lunch. Tuna salad is one of the easiest recipes to make. It is both inexpensive and nutrition to eat for lunch. Tuna sandwich is easy on the pocketbook for college students, moms or singletons like me. This is my families recipe. BUT first, a short story that inspired this blog.
A few weeks ago my sister Angel was making tuna salad for her and her grandson Austin. She told my other sister Debby that she never seems to make it like mom makes it. Debby told her she was forgetting the eggs. Apparently, she has been making it for years without the eggs.
She boiled the eggs, peeled and mashed them up. Then she mixed the eggs into the tuna and then apparently took a short break. When she came back her grandson Austin had eaten the whole thing. He commented, “That was the best tuna salad I’ve ever had!”.
The next day Austin was running to the market to pick up a few things. Angel asked him to pick up another can of tuna. He said “Why? We just ate tuna yesterday!” She said “No! YOU ate tuna salad yesterday!”
Sometimes you just have to laugh at your family.
