Sunday Salad Spectacular (and a scooter update)

This one is a little bit of a salad stretch...but I wanted to share it anyway. And again, I am not sure what to call it. Maybe Tuna Salad Topper (maybe Chuck can help with a creative name).

I learned this from some friends that were from England. If I remember correctly, they said it was common to find a baked potato cart (like a hot dog cart) where you could put different toppings on your potato. It all sounded yummy until they mentioned tuna. That's right...TUNA SALAD on a baked potato.

Let me just say...give it a try. It is actually pretty good. Here we have a baked potato (cooked in the microwave, so it is fast and doesn't heat up the kitchen) and yummy toppings. I topped it with tuna (I like the foil package tuna flavored like herb and garlic), cheese, tomatoes and green onions.

I made this twice this week for lunch when Chuck was home. It sounds kind of odd, but it is surprisingly tasty.

***********************************************************

And just one quick note...the scooter that was stolen last week has been found and is home. It looks like some kids took it and joy rode it (scratches all down the side). What a blessing to have this answer to prayer. Thanks for praying for us. Someone called the police after seeing it behind a vacant building here in our town. Bummer no finger prints were found on it and we don't know who took it (nor will they get punished for it). But alas...it is home.

As a teenager that used to do things like that...Don't worry. They will get punished:)The worst kind. GUILT.

Glad you got it back.

I'm glad you got the scooter back in pretty good shape.

I like to put tuna in spaghetti sauce. Everyone makes a face at that, too - but it is GREAT. And it is much easier and less messy - probably less fattening, too, than ground beef.

I like tuna, but hmmm...that tuna in spaghetti sauce comment...I don't know. But I'll try most anything.

YEA! I'm so glad the scooter is back. Hey, e-mail me! We are going to be up your way and Mimi would love to see the girls. Somehow when my computer crashed, your e-mail address went with it!

Hope you can get the key soon for the scooter. Glad God gave it back. We were all praying!!

So glad you got your scooter back!
