I’ve never liked Hamburger Helper but I do like Tuna Helper. It’s one of those things I would often fix when Vince was out of town or had dinner meetings and I was eating alone. A salad and Tuna Helper and I’m good!
Last night after Chad, Nicole and Addie left, Vince said he was hungry. It was close to 6 p.m. and neither of us drive after dark, plus . . I’m kinda in quarantine through Sunday. I named off the leftovers and I said “We do have Tuna Helper”. He looked at me like I’d lost my mind. I told him I actually like it and if he wanted it, I’d fix it and eat some but I wasn’t going to fix it just for me.
I keep it in my emergency food supplies because all it takes is water, milk, butter, tuna and the contents of the box. We always have plenty of tuna and I could use canned milk or boxed milk if I didn’t have fresh milk. It’s super quick to fix too.
I fixed the Cheesy Tuna variety (or something like that). I told Vince . . if you use Cajun Redhead seasoning, it takes like a restaurant cajun dish. That may have been a bit of a stretch but he used the seasoning and said it was good!
I wasn’t surprised he liked it because he likes most everything but I was kinda surprised he was willing to try it.
