View Full Version : Fun with Tuna
08-30-2000, 12:10 PM
Get your minds out of the gutter!
When I got home yesterday I found an entire case of Bumble Bee solid white tuna in water on the kitchen counter. My wife said it was on sale so she thought she would stock up. Now I enjoy a tuna sandwich for lunch, but I think 48 days of tuna sandwich will get old. So I ask you kind folks for any alternative ideas on what I can do with this supply of canned fish. Thanks for your help,

long enough post college for me to eat Tuna from a can (it's only been 20 years), but as I recall, Tuna when dumped into Mac & Cheese (plus other stuff like onions, spices etc.) is pretty dandy. I used to also do this thing with rice, mayo, green peas and tuna.,
there's always the dreaded Tuna Noodle Casserole (bake with cooked noodles and a can of cream of whatever soup)..... <brrrrr shudder>
I keep telling my teen not to fill up on Ramen noodles, tuna, and Mac & Cheese, or he'll have nothing to eat when he gets to college.

Damn. The thread SHOULD have been about something else! ;)
1) It won't go bad on the shelf. Limit your wife to one meal a week. And if it does go bad, so what?
2) Invite all your neighbors over for casserole. That'll keep 'em on their side of the property line.
3) Run. Fast and far. :eek:

Pardon me, but one does not have a "tuna sandwich". One has a "tuny-fish sandwich". Please get your terminology right.

Well, you can mix it w/ a little mayo and macaroni, then dice a bunch of fresh veggies (red & green peppers, scallions, etc.), toss it all together and voila! A nice macaroni salad. (Add pepperoncinis for extra spicy!)
Also, some wonderful things can be done w/ balsamic vinegar, baby field greans, vegetables, portobello mushrooms, and fresh ground pepper. (Vine ripe tomatoes optional but recommended.)

I saw some commercial for Rice Krispies Squares where this guy used Rice Krispie Treats to make himself a new friend.
I might make myself a kitty out of all that tuna, with mayo added to make it stick well.
Or you could save it until winter and if there's no snow you could have a snowball fight with tuna balls instead.
Maybe make a little fort?
Or start a womery? Put the tuna in a glass aquarium and get a bunch of carrion beetles. You can watch the larvae, and the pupae (although the pupae are boring because they don't move) and learn much about these little garbage men of the insect world. Antfarms are overrated anyway- carrion beetle larvae is where it's at!

Turp, at risk of being inappropriate, isn't it time for your next session? ;)
