Dad's Not Home Tuna Casserole by Mom

When Dad had to work at night Mom always made her famous tuna casserole for us.

Certainly not the healthiest of meals but it brings back a lot of memories.

Times were tough, money was tight back then. 1 can of tuna, some soup, a few vegies and some potato chips made a warm and belly filling supper for us.

I still make this casserole and every time I do it's like Mom is in the kitchen with me.
