I occasionally rave about the lunches that Earl makes for me. And today is no exception. Yesterday I mentioned that he would be out of town this week, but courtesy of the snowstorms here in the Northeast, his plans were thwarted and he got to spend last night and tonight at home.
So this morning he whipped up a nice lunch for me. Now to ordinary mortals, it would appear that I had a tuna salad sandwich on wheat for lunch today, with a few carrots on the side.
But if you’ve been following along over the years, you’ll note that I am nowhere near ordinary.
Earl made for me tuna salad using his mother’s recipe. God rest her soul, I have another reason that I wish that I could have met the woman. For not only have I been entertained over the years with stories about Earl’s mom, and pictures as well, I have now also experienced Clare’s tuna salad.
Now I’m not knocking any other incarnations I’ve had of tuna salad, but today’s version hit the spot completely; with a little bit of egg, celery, olives, onion and Hellmann’s (because we’re east of the Rockies, after all) accompanying the tuna fish for a cacophony of flavor.
Oh, there was a lot of love in there too.
That is EXACLTY how my mom and I make it, only Brian bitches about it because he doesn’t like all the crunchies in it. I eat it on toasted bread…… Yummy! Comfort food, if you ask me.
Speaking of comfort food, I could go for a Chubb from Crabby’s right about now????????
