Apple-Pickle-Carrot Sandwiches

OK I know that tuna is nothing new to anyone but I wanted to share how I have started to make my tuna. So far everyone that has tried it, likes it.
Growing up we would put dill pickles in our tuna mixed with mayo and that was it. I never knew that there was any other way to make tuna, never crossed my mind. So once when my mother-in-law asked me what I put in my tuna I thought it was a weird question because I just thought that everyone only put pickles, period. So when I answered pickles and she was still waiting for an answer I said... mayo.... tuna. On her end she was probably thinking "She only puts pickles? How weird!" She had a whole list of things and I found out that I really enjoy carrots in my tuna, thanks to her. And thanks to my grandparents I found out that apples add a sweet crunch. So here is my favorite tuna.
My three year old calls them "Apple-pickle-carrot sandwiches" kind of a long title I know! Grandpa even asked her if she wanted a tuna sandwich the other day and she simply told him, "I don't like tuna sandwiches." The reason: they aren't simply called tuna at our house.
My kids eat tuna sandwiches better than anything else... really... well... lunch food anyway!

It may sound like a weird combo but it is so yummy. You need tuna, half an apple (any color), dill pickles, carrots, and mayo. And I have noticed that adding fruit and veggies to it makes it stretch further and it's got to be more health, right?

Slap-chop it up! So easy and fast. Plus it's fun to let the kids help chop, both my kids love it.

Add a couple spoon fulls of mayo just enough to stick it together.

Slightly toast the bread and eat!


I kid you not my kids plates are always clean.

How do you make your tuna?

Bulletin Board 2

Look I'm on the internet at my house!! Yes we finally have the internet, I guess our neighbors got sick of us using their unsecured networks and blocked us out! To tell you the truth I'm surprised it's lasted a whole year! So I'm back, most of you probably didn't realize it but... I am happy that I'm back in business!
What have I been doing for a whole week with no internet you ask? Well I've been getting my craft on, and also going through withdrawals from the internet! I think it was good for me to get away from the computer, it helped put my priorities straight. So now I'm back, improved and ready to show off my stuff. Most of my projects just got started not finished but I did finish a few!
Remember a long time ago when I said I was going to finish my bulletin board well I finally did! I love it, I find myself just admiring it every once in awhile. Now I just need to finish everything else on and by the desk to complete the whole project! I've got a good jump on it all though now!

Much better don't you think?
I ironed ribbon on the edges, gives it a nice finish I think.

Then I took some felt and my fabric that I didn't dye (so it would stand out a little more), and made a flower.

It went from this...

To this...

And finally to this!

(It also helps to take horrible picture the first few times, it makes your final project look really good!)
