Simple and Delicious Tuna Salad

I love tuna salad.  Okay, let me rephrase that.  I love MY tuna salad.  I’m not picky about a lot of things.  Okay, maybe I am.  But.  I am excruciatingly picky about tuna salad.  Basically I won’t eat it unless I have prepared it myself.  Not my Mama’s.  Not Denton’s Mama’s.  Not Denton’s.  And especially not somewhere like Subway.

Don’t get me wrong, all of those people are wonderful cooks.  I love Subway.  But not any of their tuna.  The reason being that I can’t stand it if it’s wet.  At all.  I want it bone dry.  And I never, ever, ever, get it that way unless I make it myself.

So I solved that little problem by never ordering it anywhere I go and just make it myself when I crave it.  That way I’m not disappointed.  Enough talking, more making tuna salad.  Here’s how I do it.

If you like your tuna bone dry like I do, you need one of these.

I use it to completely and totally get all of the water out of the tuna.  Then I flake it into a bowl with salt and pepper.

I add minced onion……

Hellman’s mayo……

Mix it all together…..

In the meantime, toast your bread…

and add some Hellman’s to it too…..

Finally, add a thin layer of your delicious tuna salad to the bread.

Denton always requests boiled eggs for his.  The recipe for Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs is here.  They are perfect every single time!  Try it.

I think simple is best when it comes to my tuna salad sandwiches though.  Here’s the handy dandy printable.

  2. Add to your toasted bread with more mayo and you are done!

Subscribe and Save. February 2018.

As I write this post, these prices are still available.  Please, please, please check the prices before you purchase, as we all know that Amazon’s prices are subject to change! 

I don’t put in an order through Amazon Subscribe and Save every single month.  But, I do keep watch to see what kind of deals there are to be had.  Here is what I ordered in February.  Click on the photo to take you to that item. 

I try to get at least five items in my order (to get the additional 15% off discount) or I’ll just cancel until the next month.  Let’s see what’s coming from the UPS man this month.

HUGGIES Simply Clean Fragrance Free Baby Wipes, Pack of 9 Soft Packs (72 Wipes per Pack, 648 Count Total), Alcohol and Paraben Free$10.66!  Awesome!  No, I do not have an infant living in my house, but I still keep these in our bathrooms.  These are excellent for baby blow-outs, so they are awesome for grown-ups too.  Just don’t flush them.  And that’s enough on that topic.

$11.45!  I love this stuff.  You cannot beat it for price and quality.  I ALWAYS buy Finish Quantum Max.  Always.  It works great.  And I haven’t found anything that works the way it does that comes even close to the price.  Yes, you can buy something cheaper, but will it work?  I’m not even going to try it.

 

KIND Healthy Grains Granola Bars, Oats & Honey with Toasted Coconut, Gluten Free, 1.2oz Bars, 15 Count

$6.37!  I am always looking for something to pop into the kids lunches that will be sweet, but not just a helping of sugar.  If it’s got protein, fiber and vitamins, that’s even better.

Ritz Crackers (Original, 10.3-Ounce Boxes, 6-Pack)

$10.72!  Ritz crackers go with everything, right?  The kids think so.  Ritz is a favorite with them.  We also love Townhouse and Club crackers.  But, these are on sale, and I didn’t have to go into a store to get this price, so, win!

Hershey Chocolate Candy Bar Variety Pack, HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate, REESE'S Peanut Butter Cups, and KIT KAT Bars, 18 Count Box

$9.63!  And some days you just need straight up Hershey’s chocolate of some kind.  For $0.53 for a full sized Hershey bar, or Reese’s Cup, or Kit Kat, heck yeah!

Anytime I can get the UPS to do my shopping for me is a great day.  That’s what it feels like when he delivers my orders.  To my front door.

That’s what is coming to my front porch this month.  What do you order?

Instagram Goodness. 02.20.18

Are you on Instagram?  I would to see you over there.  I love it!  Here’s my link:  https://www.instagram.com/somewhatawry/

Here’s what I’ve been posting, just in case you’re interested.  🙂

 

What’s for Supper? Weekly Meal Plan 02.19.18

Our weather has been completely bonkers this past week.  High’s in the 70’s and snow over the weekend.  Which makes me want all kinds of different foods.  Do you crave things during certain seasons of the year?  Thursday it was 74* and I wanted homegrown tomatoes and watermelon.

Here’s what we had for supper this past week, and it wasn’t homegrown tomatoes and watermelon.  What did you have?  I would love to know.


February 12

  • Hamburger’s
  • Chips
  • Pickles and Giardiniera

February 13

February 14

  • Newman’s Own Pizza’s
  • Salad

Funny story that’s seriously not funny.  Did you know that one of the first ingredients in the Newman line of pizza is flax?  I didn’t either!  I’ll have to write a post about it later, because I almost killed Denton.  He is highly ALLERGIC to flax in all its glorious forms.  Yeah.  No more Newman’s Own pizza at our house.

February 16

February 15

  • Chicken sandwiches
  • Chips
  • Pickles and Giardiniera

February 17

February 18

  • Leftovers and
  • Whatever you can find – I had a turkey sandwich with Hellman’s and lettuce!

What did you have for supper last week?  I would love to know, so that I can plan out my next week of suppers!

Grocery Shopping Trip 02.15.18

This was a great week for our wallets at the grocery store.  I am just supplementing right now.  I only bought the things we couldn’t live without for another week!

You know:  milk, bread, fruit, Coke, and ONIONS.  Which I discovered upon returning home, that no one had put in the refrigerator from last week.  Which is why I thought we didn’t have any, which necessitated the buying of more onions this week.  That’s okay.  I have a life long love of onions, so they will not go to waste.

Where do you keep your onions?  I keep mine in the meat drawer of the fridge.  They don’t make me cry, and they are seriously crunchy that way.  I’ve never had a problem with them from the moisture, but they don’t stay in there long!  What did you buy at the grocery store this week?

BTW:  I adjusted the amount spent because we don’t eat Tidy Cat and I’m trying to keep a true account of what we are spending on food.

Walmart  $46.76    Total spent for the Year:  $594.97

  • Got back this week:                            Got back for the year:
  • ibotta  $0.50                                               $5.75
  • Checkout 51 $0.25                                     $0.75
  • Receipt Hog  0 Coins                                72 Coins
  • Walmart Savings Catcher $  ?               $?

 

The question mark for the savings catcher is because they still haven’t emailed me to tell me if I got anything back yet (which is very weird!).  I’ll update this as soon as they tell me!

180 More Things I NO Longer Need in My Home.

We are well into the new year and last week (02.10.18) was the first time this year that I took a load of stuff to our Salvation Army.  I can’t even remember what it was!  Let’s see.

Oh yes.  You can tell it won’t be missed, since I didn’t even recall what it was until I saw the pictures.  The white boxes have our old door hardware in them.  There is nothing wrong with the old doorknobs, I just updated ours and I love the new ones.  I’ll do a post about it soon!

A waterfall thingy.  It’s beautiful and the cats loved it, they used it as a water fountain, but the sound it made drove me crazy.  A mirror that Batman would.not.leave.alone.  He constantly wanted to use it as a scratcher.  Never mind that we have at least eleven more throughout the house.  Lot’s of other things we don’t need anymore.

I just noticed that if you look into the mirror you can see where I pulled all of our carpet out of the living room.  Yay for progress!

This is everything that was in the basket.

Lot’s and lot’s of clothes.

Socks, socks and more socks.

Magazines that have already been read.  Now someone else can enjoy them.

More miscellaneous things.  Liv has had her braces off for over a year, two years? and I still keep finding more bands!!!  Why in the world do schools buy strange things like beer cozy’s to give out at prom?  These are the questions that boggle my mind.  What a waste of money.

Okay, that’s it for the first donation of the year!  Have you been to your donation center lately?  What did you decide to give away to make more room for things you love?  Do you even remember?  Inquiring minds need to know!

Grocery Shopping Trip 02.10.18

Wow, look at me.  I’m only seven days late posting this.  But, I didn’t forget.  So we’ll call it a win.  Or at least not losing at life.  Right?

I went to two different stores last week.   Food Lion and Walmart.  What’s worse than having to grocery shop?  Having to go to TWO stores.  Moan, moan, moan.   Anyway, it got done.

By the way, one of my must do’s when I eventually win the lottery is to hire someone to do my grocery shopping for me.  That’s how much I detest it.  Come on numbers, I’m seriously tired of dodging all of the family reunions taking place each week in the aisles!

Funny story that is seriously not funny:  I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t getting money back from ibotta every time I shopped at Food Lion the last few times.  Once I logged into my Food Lion account I discovered that I had never changed our phone number when we stopped using our house phone.  Duh!  Do you still have a landline?

Next week should be better money wise, because this week ended up being a doozy.  Here’s the numbers breakdown.

Walmart  $56.10 and Food Lion $128.16    Total spent for the Year:  $548.21

  • Got back this week:                            Got back for the year:
  • ibotta  $0.50                                               $5.25
  • Checkout 51 $0.00                                    $0.50
  • Receipt Hog  0 Coins                               72 Coins
  • Walmart Savings Catcher $  ?               $?

What did you buy at the grocery store last week?

The question mark for the savings catcher is because they still haven’t emailed me to tell me if I got anything back yet (which is very weird!).  I’ll update this as soon as they tell me!

FREE Tip: Boots ~ Keeping the Form

All of the boots at our house looked like this:

To keep them from looking like sad, collapsed heaps, and to help them keep their form, stick a wine bottle (or a whisky bottle) into them!

Easy peasy, and your boots will thank you by not getting creases in the leather in odd places.  It’s also a great way to recycle those bottles.

Here is the link to the Harley Davidson boots above.  They are Liv’s and she LOVES them.

If your boot wearer has tiny feet like Liv, just turn the bottles upside down – like above – and they will fit into even really small boots.
