We never had tuna when I was growing up. I don't know why. Maybe my mom or dad didn't like it. It was after my husband and I got married that I was introduced to tuna. I didn't even know you could do anything with it but add a little mayo and boiled eggs for a sandwich. When I started learning how to really cook, I found out how convenient it was to always have some cans of it in the cupboard. I couldn't do without it now.
