Tuna Mac with Peas

Tuna Mac with Peas from Lemony Thyme

Tuna Mac with Peas.  A family favorite comfort food.  A blog is after all a place to share memories.

I couldn’t recall how it came to be that Tuna Mac with Peas became such a favorite with my sister and I….so I called her and asked her.  Her earliest recollection dated back to when we were about 7 and 10.  It was our Baby Sitter Dinner.

Baby Sitter Dinner?  Without Mom here to clarify I can only imagine that she wanted to have a dinner that would make us comfortable and homey (as she slipped out for the evening).

Keep in mind this was Pre-TV Dinner time-frame.  TV Dinners became the new Baby Sitter Dinner.  Mom would take us to select our favorite novelty TV dinner.  Ah the choices.  I remember how much fun this was and how we viewed these as such a treat.  Today I’ll trade TV Dinners for Tuna Mac with Peas any day.
