Works for Me: Perfect Tuna Salad

I love tuna salad. I have always loved it. I can distinctly remember eating it as a child and thinking it was the next best thing to PB&J. Anywho, I am always tinkering with my recipe, but I think I have finally found the perfect tuna salad recipe.

1 can of tuna (any kind you like)
2 T. light mayo (or more if you like it extra creamy, I however like as little mayo as possible)
1 T. Italian Salad Dressing
Salt and Pepper to taste

Spread onto your favorite bread, pita, crackers, or carb of choice and enjoy!

For me WFMW ideas, jump over to Rocks in my Dryer.

Historically Day... times 2!

Today, Jan 20, is a historical day... for our nation and our family.

Its one of those days that really doesn't matter whether your a red or blue state, its history. No matter what you think of our very-very-soon-to-be President, in a few short hours, Mr. Obama will be just that, our President. And if for no other reason than the title which he will soon hold, he deserves our respect and our prayers. I know we will never all agree on his policies, his approach to certain matters, or (maybe) anything else he will attempt to accomplish in the next four years. But history like this is an amazing thing to be part of.... and it makes me proud to be an American.

On the family note- K will embark on her first day of pre-school today. She will attend our church's wonderful preschool. So please, pray for her (and her mama, too) as she embarks on this wonderful, exciting, and educational phase of her life.

(PS- We haven't told her that once she starts school it doesn't end 'til there is a college degree hanging on her wall, we didn't want to spoil her day!)

I am not Martha Stewart. I have never claimed to be Martha Stewart. I would not want to be Martha Stewart for many reasons. But I do have a confession....

I just "sewed" a beautiful table runner out of left-over fabric from my window treatments. Why is s-e-w in quotation marks, you may ask. Well (and here comes the confession) I did all the "stitching" with a glue gun!

There, I feel much better after getting that off my chest. Thank you.
