Mmmmmm, potato soup with chives! Everything looks great -- well, except the tuna bean thing. I think we've discussed here before that my mom made a dish called Tuna Wiggle that ruined me forever on any kind of tuna casserole.

Tuna Wiggle! It sounds like a children's horror movie......

The only tuna thingy I like is Tuna Nicoise ~ I read somewhere Julia Child ate this for lunch at home EVERY single day of her life. That just can't be so! I add fried potoatoes to mine w/fresh green beans, garbanzos, tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives, red onion, arugula and drizzle dressing over the top (OMG). Seriously, I could see why Julia was hooked.

Laura ~ you eat v e r y well.....

Tuna Wiggle.....EW!!!
The name alone makes me gag.
What was your mom thinking?
Were you in trouble when she made it?
Punishment lunch?


I'm pretty sure Tuna Wiggle was an ordinary Tuna Noodle Casserole that my mom ate in the 50s and then made for us. I think the name was a New England thing.

We also have something called Boiled Dinner (usually pronounced Dinnah) -- it's what other places call Corned Beef & Cabbage. "Boiled Dinner" doesn't sound very appetizing, either.

I think our take-away from this is that New England Yankees are bad at naming food. :)
