In the 50s and 60s, I was working 2 jobs, and raising 2 boys.
So quickie meals were the norm.
Always trying to make do ...
with what was in the larder.
I devised this recipe so man moons ago,
I forgot all about it!
My dear sister-in-law reminded me of how she liked it.
So here is my simple recipe,for you to enjoy.
A can of corn, can of tuna, and a couple taters...easy peasie.
The corn cobs add special flavor.
Add-ons are always welcome.
