MY TUNA RECIPE...

Title:  Snow returns, as drixxly

Tuesday already?  And a fat one at that?  Here is my recipe for tuna salad [ostensibly for samiches during Lent]:

Two cans tuna, chunk=light in water, drained until thumbs are bruised.  One onion, finely choppt; 2 stalks crispy celery also finely choppt.  Three heaping tablespoons real Mayonaisse, no substitutions!  ½ teaspoon each of mustard [any kind] & horse=radish...coupla shakes of Mrs. Dash [garlic & herb is good].  Optional: ½ finely choppt baby pickle, 1 spanish olive finely choppt without Pimiento!  Chop & mash ingredients into a bowl until pulpy.  Blend until creamy, make & eat test samich [sandwich] on yucky white bread.  Refrigerate until Good Friday~decant excess water as required.  Eat filet mignon for three days after preparation.  If for any reason you must eat a tuna samich before Good Friday, slather white bread with additional Mayo & add one or two leaves of Romaine lettuce. Add tuna of gourse, salt & pepper lightly per samich.  Ignore pimiento rotting on side=board for three weeks.

There is a much quicker Maisie recipe which takes 5 minutes and does not include anything but tuna & mayo---it werks especially well after swimming on the beach.  And except for the fact that i will never corrupt salad=tuna with anything approaching real Eggs, that's pretty much it.  Buon appetito!

Politically [hmm] i will say only three things:  I am truly sorry that the President's dog has passed on.  Ralph Nader has a perfect right to run for any office he chooses [and he didn't cost Albert the 2000 election---too many factors to elucidate...].  Gay people should feel free to marry whomever they like; but some folx are still going to look at y'all cross=wise.  Not all, not most but some--and probly forever.  Oh Well.

  I prefer to stand at a respectful distance from such weighty matters.  And grind up a delicious Lenten tuna salad.

Tuna: No good without jalapenos!!! Maisie's 5 minute recipe would only take 7 minutes if you add diced jalapenos, ground black pepper and diced pickles (i.e. relish).

Where are my son's mardi gras photos?

Of gourse i add the choppt jalapeno
FROM MY GARDEN, in season, just one...
Relish is NOT a condiment i recognise.
Chop a small dill pickle instead.
