Creamed Tuna????

This is my chuckle for today: Joe came home with large cans of chicken for lunch. An Orange City specialty is cans of chicken mixed with Cream of Chicken Soup and served over buns. So - that is what we were making - Joe opened both of the Large cans and dumped them in a pan with a can of soup. He kept mixing and mixing and they sure seemed runnier than usual. I remember thinking, "Wow, sure smells like Tuna." But I knew he bought chicken so I put it out of my mind. While we were eating the boys kept saying things like, "Are you sure you aren't tricking us - this sure smells like Tuna???" "It even tastes like Tuna." "Wow, chicken sure smells like Tuna." It didn't hit me until I was going to recycle the cans that - INDEED - he did buy Tuna!!! So we had Tuna and Cream of Chicken Soup for lunch - don't all rush right out and buy it for dinner tonight - not sure I'd stomach it if I knew what it was!!! I just had to share what Joe learned today - ALWAYS READ THE LABEL and don't be deceived by "Chicken of the Sea"!! (I will give him credit though - we never buy Tuna in those large cans - didn't even know they made it - I thought the large cans would be chicken too!!!) Oh, and the best part - I put all of the leftovers up in the freezer for another day - hmmm, who wants to come right over for that meal????

Now I'm wondering - do we tell the boys?????

That is too funny, Becky.
Instead of "tastes like chicken" --now the saying around the Bilby house will surely be "tastes like tuna"
No thanks!!
P.S. Your pic of Chloe today is adorable.

I'll send my children right over! You can feed THEM what is left if you promise not to send them home for a few days! (Hey, I'll even throw in our snow!)


When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
