Jim asked for a tuna casserole for dinner….sure, I can do that. Oops, don’t have any mushroom soup. That’s OK, I’ll drive to City Market after I finish doing laundry (8 mile drive into Granby).
So after finishing laundry I do that…get the mushroom soup and even bought some frozen peas to add to it.
Come home about 4 p.m. oops, one of the camphosts wants me to check his paperwork to see if he’s doing it right.
So 5 p.m. and Jim is still involved in setting up a new 6.5 KW generator that he’s been working on since 9 a.m. That’s OK I’ll just cook up the macs and peas and wait for him to come home to finish it off.
On comes 6:15 p.m. and Jim comes home. We tell each other about our day while I preheat the oven and put the finishing touches on the tuna casserole. We’re talking, sharing…..I make a roux, add milk to make a white sauce….then I grate cheese and add it, add a little cayenne….mix it into the macs and peas, add a little diced onions….grate more cheese on top and pop it into the oven to heat up and melt the cheese.
Then 30 minutes I take it out of the oven and serve it up…..Jim has a second serving, complimenting me on the taste as he always does. Then after dinner I clean up and wash dishes……
OMG what’s that on the counter?????
It’s a can of mushroom soup and a can of tuna fish!!!!!!
I got distracted talking to Jim and ended up making macaroni and cheese for dinner instead of a tuna casserole. Dumb, dumb, dumb.
Guess what we’re having for dinner tomorrow???
You are loved.
