Mom's Tuna Fish

Don't you just love tuna fish sandwiches? I decided to skip the bread today and have it on a bed of lettuce. There are two things missing from this lunch, fresh tomatoes and sliced cucumbers! That would have made it all complete. My mom made the best tuna fish. Her secret ingredient was an apple! I always chop an apple in mine and it gives it a flavor I love. When I was in the first grade I remember my teacher asking me everyday what I brought in my lunch. If it was tuna she would beg to trade sandwiches, of course I would. She loved mom's tuna fish. I guess you could say that was back in the good ole days when you could safely trade sandwiches with your teacher.

Mom's Tuna
2 cans tuna
2 boiled eggs
2 T mayo (I use miracle whip)
3 Heaping T. sweet pickle relish, drained
1 Apple

Back to the yard,,,still planting flowers. I have gone back to Lowe's twice for more potting soil. I never learn to buy several bags at a time. I'm talking those huge bags, heavy!

Have a good day all!
