What is so special about Tuna and Noodles you may ask? Well if you ask me it’s the crunchy noodles on top, but my children would disagree on that point! But really? It’s cheap, fast and easy to make! Sure you have to cook the noodles ahead of time, but once that is done you can forget about it. There have been many a times on the way home I call Mike and ask him to start the water boiling and even sometimes have him start the noodles.
Everyone seems to have a different tuna and noodle recipe, some are fancy and some are very basic. Mine I like to think of as very basic. I got adventurous once and put sweet corn nibblets in it, you know the really sweet, small pale corn. 5 out of 6 of us loved it, wasn’t a whole lot different but gave it a sweet taste. The other one? He swore all he could taste was the corn. So now sometimes we have it with corn in it and sometimes we don’t. Reason I picked corn was it was the same color as the noodles, less chance of someone picking it out!
Tonight I wanted to do something simple, and when I mean simple I mean not standing in the kitchen watching over something. So I googled and checked out a couple of my favorite blog for chicken recipes… baked chicken recipes and found one over at My Kitchen Cafe. Exactly what I wanted, I had everything needed! Of course I tweaked it a bit, and at the last minute decided to throw some frozen peas together. Kids are not big pea fans unless they are in something like Fried Rice. But I have learned to dress up certain veggies so they aren’t horrible for them, but taste good!
