Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
I love avocados. I don't peel them, however. I scoop the flesh out with a teaspoon. It's easy and leaves only a thin film of flesh behind.

I like the sound of your recipe for avocado toast, Steve.

Yesterday my Dear Husband hoisted himself into the dark, dusty attic of my old church to check for leaks and seal up new holes. I thanked him and asked, "Would you like something special for dinner as a reward?"

I had some possibilities in mind: roast pork with baked sweet potatoes, steak aux poivre, baked chicken with herbes de Provence... He had his own possibility; he wanted tuna and noodles.

the DH's tuna and noodles

Boil up some noodles or other form of pasta
While pasta is getting ready, drain one can of tuna in water
Make a cup of cream sauce
Chop or grate 3/4 cup cheddar cheese or other cheese of your choice Melt the cheese in the hot cream sauce
When pasta is done and drained, mix the drained tuna, cheesy sauce and noodles in a big serving bowl. Serve.

We haven't made this in 25 years. To me, tuna and noodles is a recipe for kids. The DH used to make it without the cream sauce. He simple threw the cheese onto the hot noodles, which clumped together in blobs. I like this way better.

It seems to me that some herb or flavoring ought to be added, but I don't know what.
