Beach Tuna

That may be the saddest “recipe” title I’ve ever posted. I was just telling 8kidsandabusiness about how in a rut I’ve been with meatless Fridays, and this is not exactly what I could call getting out of that rut.

Anyways. What did get us out of a rut was a last minute overnight at the beach, Assateague Island more specifically. In the space of 48 hours, we crammed in an entire beach vacation: crabbing, two days on the beach, boardwalk rides, boardwalk food, and pool time. Had First Shift been in school-school, we never could have done this. I’m liking the freedom homeschool provides. For the moment.

Another anyways. Beach Tuna is just your favorite tuna salad recipe, made a little looser than you would for a sandwich, because you’re going to be eating it with potato chips. Seriously. My favorite: Herr’s Sour Cream & Onion.

And here’s a picture of the Shifts crabbing, or as Second Shift says, “catching sharks.”
