It is hard to believe that Christmas is 4 days away. The temperature is so mild here in Toronto and it doesn’t sound like it is going to get much colder. It seems like we will be without a white Christmas this year. I am not a lover of winter…. ok…. that is far to mild. I hate winter but, I must say, I do like having a white Christmas. The snow can arrive Christmas morning, melt on Boxing Day and never come back. That would suit me just fine.
My kids, on the other hand, have been wanting snow for weeks now. The couple times we had a dusting of the white stuff they got so excited. They have their sleds all ready to take to the hills. The boys are looking forward to some good snowball fights and Mary wants to make a snow angel. The boys love Calvin and Hobbes and love it whenever Calvin gets into a snowball fight with Susie. A few weeks ago, there was a little bit of snow that fell and Eli was able to make a snowball. Knowing that the snow was melting outside, he asked to put the snowball in the freezer. Have you seen the Arthur episode when D.W. puts a snowball in the freezer? I think Eli got the idea from watching that.
Today, I am posting another ‘Kids in the Kitchen’ recipe. This is a tuna salad in stuffed tomatoes. Ben made it completely by himself and did an amazing job. As you can see from his picture below, he was quite proud of his accomplishment. Having made a couple dishes now he has already gained a lot of confidence in the kitchen. I wonder what he will make next.
- 8 tomatoes
- 6 cups cooked macaroni or other pasta
- 1 can of flaked tuna in water
- 3 celery stalks, minced
- 1½ cups Miracle Whip
- fresh parsley for garnish
- Cut the top of the tomatoes and core the inside removing all the seeds.
- In a bowl, mix the macaroni/pasta, drained tuna, minced celery and Miracle Whip.
- Spoon the tuna salad into the cored tomatoes. Garnish with parsley.
