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?

Hmm, Evelyn.... I may have to try some shredded cheese in my tuna. I do love my cheese!

I have bought it in oil but it's too greasy and slimy. Only water now.

I make my tuna salad the same way, with Mayo, relish and chopped egg, but I also add shredded cheese. It's delicious!

Sorry I'm late....

Yes, I love tuna salad sandwiches~  In fact, eating one as I am typing this.  I got interrupted during my lunch today by big bossman so I was gracious and just packed everything up and brought it back to my desk so I could do whatever he wanted me to do.

I make it with MAYO (NOT Miracle Whip!), grated onion or dried minced onion, sweet pickle relish & chopped boiled egg if I have the gumption to boil some (or already have some boiled).  My grandmother got me hooked on the sweet pickle relish & egg.... and yes, I prefer it a few hours after I make it or even better the next day.  It's because of the onions.... the flavor gets all through it if it sits overnight ....  I made this batch Sunday night. 

I was mad at myself because I forgot to bring a sandwich with me yesterday and figured I would have to make that long haul to the hospital cafeteria but my co-worker brought me some of her homemade chicken noodle soup!  It was good too... I was glad she saved me that long trip since I had already made it twice before lunch yesterday (I've made it twice today already too!). 

Anyway.... I always buy the white tuna packed in water in the pouches instead of cans.... I love it in the pouches... no draining or anything! But, I do make sure that it says "Dolphin Safe" somewhere on the package!

Back when I was first married, tuna packed in water was a lot higher in price as tuna packed in oil so I bought it in oil all the time... it's what my grandma always bought too so it was pretty much all I knew.  I hated draining it though... it seemed like it took forever.  But, I poured it over our dog, Micky's food too, Sandy.... I heard it was good for their coat. He LOVED it!

A few years later when I was going to weight watchers, they recommended you buy tunat in water so I did.  I figured it would taste crappy but it didn't.... and it seemed like after a while, the price kind of evened out between the oil vs water packed so we now buy it packed in water (in the pouches.... have I said how much I love the pouches yet?  well, I do!)

Like Renee only by accident!  If I do accidently pick up a can in oil the dog gets a special treat for dinner.  I won't touch it.

I wonder the same thing Tracy!

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

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 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 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.

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.
