I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Creamed Tuna (Anita Heap)

2 c milk (½ c + 1/6 c powdered milk + 1.5 + 3/8 c water)
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
¼ c butter or margarine
2 cans of tuna (12 oz total)
2 cubes pureed vegetables (optional)
Bread, toasted

Blend cornstarch in with cold milk so there are no lumps. Add all ingredients and stir constantly on medium heat until mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add tuna and pureed vegetables. Serve over toast.

I love to mix sweet peas with my tuna and bread, but Jon and the kids prefer to keep them separate.

  1. Hey Jen, when I was at Wal-mart yesterday I found 12 oz cans of Tuna in the Starkist brand. Just thought I'd let you know.
