Tuna and Peas on Toast...otherwise know as...

I have some requests on my last blog post for the recipe for this...

My Mom used to call it S**t on a Shingle, but I prefer
Tuna and Peas on Toast.

You start with a white sauce, I use the one in the back of my trusty Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book.  Yeah, it was new way back in the 1950's when my Mom first got it, and I "borrowed" it from her when I got married in the late 70's.  So here it is...

White Sauce
medium (1 cup)
2 tbs butter
2 tbs all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat.  Blend in flour and salt, and dash white pepper (I use black).  Add milk all at once.  Cook quickly, stirring constantly, till mixture thickens and bubbles.
The I just add a package of tuna (no water) and a can of peas (drained).
Heat through and serve over toast.
Yum Yum!
Simple, easy, and very cheap...I mean...inexpensive.  :0)

Be blessed,

A Busy End Of Summer

Wow, I haven't been here much at all this summer.  I don't know why, we didn't go anywhere or do anything special.  I know that I have been busy online working for The Craftstar, which put Yankee Burrow on the back burner for a little while, but I think I finally have a good working schedule.  But for now let me share with you some fun pictures.

 My cute grandson discovered Ravioli

Our homeschool group had our first gathering with a pizza in the park party.  Our group has almost doubled in size from last year. :0)

The weather got cool enough for some childhood comfort food.  Tuna and peas on toast, yum yum.  I remember my mom LOVING this stuff, but she called it s**t on a shingle.  Chuck remembers eating this in the Navy. lol

In August we discovered a young stray cat living under the shop.  Chuck felt bad for it and started feeding him.  (Yeah, he's a softie at heart <3)  Within a few weeks Tom moved onto our back deck.  He still won't let us touch him (yet) but he loves it when we come and sit out there.  He just meows and talks to us and lays under our chairs.  He hangs out by our back door, mostly because of our female cat Patches, BUT when we take our dog Pee Wee out, Tom will rub right up against him.  He's bigger than Pee Wee, so Pee Wee is not too sure about this.

The word must have gotten out because a few weeks later, Little One moved onto our porch.  Tom shares his food without too much argument.  Little One is super cute, but super skittish.  I finally have him to the point where he will stay on the porch when I come out...but he watches us closely.

The last Saturday of September is the Hiddenite Festival of the Arts, and we attend most every year.  This year they put an actual rope around the tractors, instead of just the keep off signs that all the kids ignored.  Owen was disappointed. lol

And this????  One of my favorite reasons for the fall season!  Totally bad for me, but totally tasty.  I'm still waiting for the pumpkin spice coffee creamer. :0)

So how was your summer?  Busy?  Relaxing?  Stressful?  Fun?  Share your story with a comment.

 Be blessed,
