the craziest dinner. EVER.

My food budget for this week is non existent.  I don't know what happens but by the last week of the month Its gone.  I have *maybe* $20 and that for milk for Miguel for the week - yes he drinks THAT much!  I looked in my pantry and at my leftovers to come up with something for dinner.  I channeled my inner Hernan (the kids grandpa, he's good for fixing up weird stuff and having it come out delicious) to make something that the kids would eat. 

Here's what I came up with:

leftover rice - about 2 cups from the fridge
1/2 head of lettuce sliced
1 can tuna, drained
a generous squirt mayo

I cut the lettuce and heated up the rice to make it slightly warm.  I drained the tuna and dumped on the lettuce and rice.  I then added just enough mayo to moisten it and have it come all together.

Not only did my kids LOVE this meal, they are actually FULL!  if you know my kids they are NEVER full!  They asked if I would make this again for dinner tomorrow!  When they ask for it as another meal, I know I made a hit!

What's something crazy you threw together and your family liked?


  1. HA! Sue that sounds disgusting. lol glad you all liked it though!

  2. dude... I'm Asian and I LOVE rice... and we like tuna... but I think I draw the line with the mayonnaise. LOL. Gotta love concocted dinners!
