tuna salad is my lunch or dinner menu at least once a week. is a great way to get fatty fish in the diet of girls without much fuss – and love! ( Read this post and this post about how the tuna is a nutritious food for consumption, provided that tuna w is ILD caught is a safe food for consumption too!)
I’ll be honest … the last year to balance my first kindergarten, and a preschooler and a baby has pulled my game out a bit! Reproduction taxi driver, maid, cook, and playmate is a lot of work!
Do not misunderstand me, I do not take for granted, and I love every minute! But many times rolls around 11AM and have not even been cleaned from breakfast, much less idea what’s for lunch for these bottomless pits!
I can get this tuna salad put together in less than 10 minutes -., Which is priceless in a day endless diaper changes, cups spilled milk, and stories from kindergarten to listen
they Serving possibilities are endless! piling up on top of tomato and cucumber rounds, boats tablespoon pepper, dip cookies in it, or wrap it in a rice wrap! also mixed in a big bowl of lettuce for a salad! If you have to be something, you can only feed a spoon or put pieces of it on his plate of finger food. My girls enjoyed the tuna salad about 9 months old (sans the nuts before they were 1 year).
