About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Scraps and Snippets ~ Jack "Tuna"

Jack "Tuna"

1 Cup vegetable broth
1 Can green jackfruit packed in brine (not the ripe in syrup)
2 tsps of your favorite seaweed, which I do NOT have...I did some research, then ended up not having much choice at the store. So I got hijaki
3 TBSP vegan mayo
3 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 TBSP minced onion
3 TBSP minced celery
1 TBSP sweet pickle relish
1/4 Cup sunflower seeds (optional if this would kill a family member, XTA)

Drain jackfruit. Place jackfruit in a saucepan and add the veggie broth. Simmer until the fruit softens and most of the broth is absorbed. (20 minutes or so.)

Shred the jackfruit into a bowl. (You can dump out the extra liquid if any remains).

This makes quite a bit. Enough for 8 sandwiches or so. Serve with crackers or scoop out a tomato and fill it with the tuna.

OMG DYING LAUGHING!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just told Rex the story last night how you try to kill Jack and now as I am reading this mornings...I start to see sunflower seeds and begin to think in my head "oh I see she is moving on to now kill my next child" and THEN I see your note. I laughed out loud in my cubeis. HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for that addition. Not once did I finish the recipe and think "this is a personal affront. She is trying to kill my children."

Whew. Did you see the & comments on FB? She claims I tried to kill her feeding (forced, apparently) a "fake" version of something she hates/hated/detested. I think my role is to make as many children's lives as miserable as possible.

I read that and laughed and laughed. It was quite a visual in my head!!!! I guess I never knew she didn't like tuna! Who doesn't like tuna? And it is even more hilarious that she would freak over a vegan fake tuna! TOO FUNNY!
