Call Me a Liar

Well, it appears I'll be blogging about our humble dinners now and again, even though I promised not to.

This sounded like a strange combination of ingredients to me, but I decided to make it anyway (keep in mind, I'm on the very low end of the spectrum of level-of-experimentation-with-food). Oh but I'm glad I did! Again, super easy and the whole family loves it. Now I make it all the time. It came off a can of Brunswick tuna.

Does that look delicious? No, it does not. But that doesn't stop it from tasting good. And that's what we're shooting for when it comes to fast, easy meals.

Curried Tuna

2 cans tuna, drained (this sounded to me like too much, but it's not)
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons curry powder
2 green onions (with tops) thinly sliced
3 cups cooked rice
1/4 hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (I don't use this)

Cook and stir butter, curry powder and onions in 10 inch skillet over medium heat until butter is melted. Stir in everything else and cook and stir until tuna is hot. Now you can serve and eat it, but do not take a picture, because rice and tuna are not very pretty foods, or if you do, at least take it in the daylight.

We used to buy canned curried tuna in the Philippines. They also had tuna menudo, sweet and sour, I can't remember what else. Still, when I was a kid, we had tuna casserole a lot, and we also had tuna burgers, so I don't know if I could ever bring myself to cook the stuff.

I SO love you blogging, how else would I ever see your dinnerware? (I'm not kidding, it's so much easier to iMAGine things if I have these kind of details!) And although I don't think your food posts are as revealing about your family, etc., I'm very glad to have you posting them!! And I just noticed your list of recipes on the side--thanks!!

You are an awesome cook Lisa and I love all your recipes! Keep it up. I love curry and I am very curious to try this. I don't think the kids would go for it since they are not huge tuna fans, but who knows?

That African soup recipe on your sidebar looks really good to me. But I am afraid to try it. I seriously doubt the kids will like it. And peanut butter in soup? Sounds a little odd. But I love peanut butter anything....

Tonight I was babysitting Lydia's friend from China, so I thought it would be a good night to try this recipe out. Lydia and her friend both cleaned their plates and asked for more! It was very good and easy and it uses things I have in food storage. A great staple meal. I only had yellow onions so I cooked them with some cauliflower for a while at the beginning and it turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!
