I am king



Tuna a la king to be precise. I love this quick and easy dish. Tuna a la king was one of the very first things I learned how to make as a kid. I loved it on toast, most especially on toast from my grandmothers homemade horno bread. This preparation was on some super twisty noodles called Cavatappi.

An horno is an outdoor oven popular in the southwest. They are made from adobe bricks and they hold the heat like any brick oven would, plus the smokiness from the local pinon wood made the bread so delicious and so special.

I have 7 (seven) posts to go to reach my goal of 365 - there are 16 (sixteen) more days left in the year so I am going to be spreading out my posts to every other day so as not to go over my limit. I have heard many arguments against my little task of EXACTLY 365 but I said I would and I WILL do exactly 365. Next year I will re-evaluate this 'limit' and decide if I will do it again or not, but for now this is where we are.

Oh my! That cheesy tuna certainly makes my saliva goes!!! ^5 on us having tuna days! LOL

And GO GO GO! Hit the 365 posts!

sofia said...

If you tried to serve me that tuna, my tears would fall all over it!

ps. my mom says that you use vernacular to obfuscate, but it's okay since she has already decided she likes you.

andres said...

I like tuna, but not when it's called 'shit on a shingle'.

francesco said...

I kind of hate tuna because it makes my sister cry.

snugs said...

I like the idea of a nice 374..it is a lovely number, you need to think outside the box doggy..but either way, tomorrow you get a pass...try to behave yourself- oops, sorry, that just jumped out at me like a ton of cement..

LOL - great goals for the post.

And that's right - u are a king!

starrlife said...

Definitely the King but can you sing? I am so impressed about the 365- I'm speechless (that's a joke). Not the impressed part- the speechless part!

Anette said...

I'm with snugs. That 365 obsession is a bit hard on us, don't you think? Its not our fault that you have used to many during the year, and now you want to starve us just because of that number?

I'd bet anything, they don't sell Cavatappi in East Tennesse.
Hey, it was a leap year, you can do one more!

...that's one bitchin' noodle...

buffalodick said...

We eat a lot of tuna salad sandwiches, but haven't made that casserole in quite a while...

TavoLini said...

I see peas!!

Looks good--I'm a big fan of all things cheese, noodle, veg :)

Stick to your guns! 365!

Marjie said...

I can't face anything even remotely resembling tuna casserole. Tuna sandwiches, grilled, with cheese, well, that's another story.

Bina said...

Who said you can't post MORE than 365? And I love tuna dishes! And what is the red spice on there? I think they use that at Chili's and I love that stuff!

Harmony said...

I love tuna and pasta...and that looks great. You always get me with your colors! Wow I can't believe how close you are...great job!

The Blonde Duck said...

I haven't had tuna a la king in forever! Yum!

"A horno" you've got to be kidding right? I thought this was a family friendly site...

Pravs said...

Maggie said...

I love the amorphous shape of the ovens. They look as if they grew out of the mud.

ayamlin said...

TavoLini said...

Thank you Anonymous - 'horno' is unrelated to cooking. I've seldomly read anything on this site related to cooking.
