I blame it all on Becoming a Farm Girl. Yep it is all her fault. That woman has a lot of energy! I watched her video on her cereal recipes and figured out that I could make cinnamon toast crunch with low carb bread and sweetener. So, I got busy doing that and then I decided while it was toasting that I would chop my weekly onions and then I needed a pan, opened the drawer, and everything fell out. Time to organize ..again!
Oh the mess, I'm glad this picture is blurry!
(Our frostless fridge needs defrosting again. so that's why the little fridge is in the kitchen. So, this weekend some time.)
There was an ad on Facebook Marketplace for Free Mulch. She had gotten a free chip drop and had a lot she didn't need. On our way to finish other errands we picked up as much as we could. I spread this around every fruit tree we have. I wish I would have gotten more.
We had five children in our family. Mother found ways to stretch everything she made. There were theives though in the family. Big sister Kathy stole your pork chop if you didn't watch it carefully. You only got one if you were lucky.
In an attempt to make tuna go further she always put boiled eggs in our tuna salad. We loved it but I didn't understand why no one I knew did that. She could make up a bunch and everyone would have a sandwich. Smart woman!
Now that most of the country has lower egg prices this recipe is a great helper to make your tuna go further or you can even leave out the tuna and call it Egg Salad.
1 can of tuna
4 boiled eggs
1 pickle diced
1 small onion peeled and chopped
2 or 3 tablespoons of mayonaise
1 tsp mustard
Mix all ingredients well. Adjust to your taste.
