Quick Lunch - Open Face Tuna Sandwiches

Good morning,

Do you feel you are running in circles getting things done during the holidays?

It seems meal time comes quickly when we are busy and I find myself standing in the kitchen wondering what I'll make for a quick lunch so we can get back to whatever it is that we are doing.

I'm sure you make something similar, but my recipe for the open face sandwiches above is below.  I've written the recipe the way my Mom would have told us how she would make it.  Gosh, I miss her.

2 cans chunk light tuna, drained  (liquid in separate bowls, one for each of our Lab testers)
2 globs (that was a cooking term in my Mom's kitchen - I guess it's about 4 T) real mayonnaise
1/4 medium onion, diced
3 shakes celery salt (probably about 1/4 t)
1 hand full (about 1/3 cup) chopped walnuts
1 hand full (also about 1/3 cup) dried cranberries
pepper to taste (about 4 shakes in my kitchen)

Mix it all gently and serve on sliced home made bread with lettuce.  I make my bread in small half loaf pans so these are perfect finger sandwiches.

Now, back to knitting and wrapping presents!!!
