QOTD for MONDAY

The talk about tuna fish last week put me in the mood for some.   So I had some for lunch yesterday.

Do you like tuna fish?   Which variety to you buy?  How do you prepare it?

I have always liked tuna fish sandwiches or tuna on crackers.

I get the solid white packed in water.   I goofed once and got some packed in oil.   I don't like that at all.

I usually make my tuna with mayonnaise only.  I may put one dash of dillweed on it too.   I also like celery diced in there for a crunch.

Tuna is one of the few sandwiches that I really, really prefer on white bread.   I don't go out of my way to make sure I have white here when I eat it, but if there is white bread in the house and I am making tuna, that's what I eat.  Super soft fresh white with tuna.....mmmmm.  I also like tuna on rye though.  

I like tuna right after I mix it.   Otherwise I think it gets too mushy or something so I will never go back and eat anything I have leftover.

I love tuna salad either on bread, crackers or on top of shredded lettuce with a tomato.  I also love it on top of a ring of pineapple.  I had it for lunch one day served on top of a slice of fresh pineapple when I was on vacation in Mexico (Acapulco).  It was many, many, many a year ago and I have been hooked on tuna with pineapple since then.

I only get the solid white in water like you Tracy.  I find the one packed in oil too - well oily - lol.  I mix with mayo and sometimes add dill, sometimes celery but that is about it.  As far as the bread goes it does not really matter but I do like the sandwhich thins that are out there.  I know we have talked about them before.  I try to always have a package of them in the fridge -

I like tuna in tuna noodle casserole and I like mayo.  I need to make some just to try it.  I do like egg salad and it can’t be much different, can it? 

The ad at the top of the page as I post this is for Brownberry Sandwich Thins!  lol

Yes, I do like tuna salad. I buy it water packed as well. I usually just add some miracle whip and if I have the stuff, I will put some onion in it.  I like it on white bread with a slice of cheese. 

When I was younger my mom would mix tuna and cream of mushroom soup with some onion, put it on bread and put it in the toaster oven. It was sooooo yummy. I still make it sometimes.

I love tuna!!!!! I love tuna, tomato, and onion sandwiches, or putting it in a salad... or a grilled cheese sandwich with tuna and a bit of bbq sauce! My Mum better bring me some bbq sauce when she comes over! LOL

I buy the water packed kind... or sometimes tomato and onion flavoured tuna.

I like tuna every once in awhile, and like most everybody else, I buy it packed in water - albacore - and mix it with mayo only. Tristan and I are the only ones who will eat it here. My husband DESPISES it  - he cannot stand the smell. Tuna and hot dogs are about the only things I can think of that he won't eat. He will cook hot dogs for the boys, but will not go near tuna. We have a little orange Tupperware bowl that I always use for tuna, and nothing else. He knows not to open that bowl!

I always consider us a great cross-section of different opinions. So, who buys tuna in oil? Someone has to or they wouldn't sell it.

I wonder the same thing Tracy!

Only by accident and it usually only takes once...
