Warm And Satisfying Tuna Noodle Casserole

Germany is not getting Summer, and if we do get even the slightest hint of one, well it will be for a very short period of time. They are getting a huge amount of rain and cold weather. The Zugspitze a Famous Skiing Area about 3 hours south of us is completely snowed out this year at this time. Last year at this date the snow was completely melted.

That was a picture off the Zugspitze Facebook Page. Taken in recent days.

Amazing eh.  We expect the weather to change to winter rather quickly this year.  

So I decided with the cold weather I wanted something very hearty today. My husband is off on a training trip so my friend Heather is spending time with me at my house. I figured I should continue to make good food so I can blog about it. I also  can make something with Tuna in it. My husband does not like Tuna at all. I love it, on sandwiches, on salads, casseroles.  Which brings me to the recipe of the day!

 

An Easy Tuna Noodle Casserole, The only effort you really have to do is cooking the egg noodles.

And you can substitute whatever or add in whatever you like.

My Basic Recipe:

1-2 Cans Tuna

1 cup Green Peas

1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup

1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

6 oz egg noodles (cooked, al dente, make sure you read the package for exact directions)

Bread Crumbs (Optional)

(As I said you can add whatever combinations or change the type of cheese)

 

Tuna Mixture

Mixture!

Mix Ingredients 1-4 while the noodles are being cooked.

Once the noodles are cooked and drained add that into the tuna mixture.

Pour into a casserole dish, (This is when you would add breadcrumb topping), Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Tuna

 

VOILA!  And you can make this ahead of time and freeze it in a sealable container for those days that you just don’t feel like cooking.

Today Marks my 1 year anniversary for blogging, I started out blogging with a different blog, but I have found that food is my calling. Thank you to my followers I am also at 50, which I was surprised at.  I hope that I can help you find a new recipe to add to your books or something to impress your friends and family with.

Things my daughter said as I was breading chicken

So as you saw my little helper, my 2 1/2 year old daughter was helping me yesterday. More or less spreading flour around. Which she called making “sand castles”. Don’t ask me where she got that from.

Now when you are breading chicken, what comes to mind? Sticky, flour encrusted hands, that everything you touch afterwards is covered in a nasty filmy flour.

Does Sand castles seem a little odd? I guess it can seem like your playing in “sand.”

Then she proceeded to point at the chicken pieces and call them fish. I pointed out that they were chicken, but she said no it’s fish. Laughing all the while.

Leave it to my daughter to make breading chicken an interesting experience.

I would say it is an experience, quite an experience, attempting to do anything in the kitchen with a toddler.  She makes things interesting, Why this, why that?  What you doing mommy…. A constant thing I hear every day.

So trying to get down to her level and explain things, well you get sand castles and fish.

Have a great weekend!
