It’s quite possible that tonight, I made the laziest dinner possible. I mean, short of popping the lid on a can of Chef Boyardee, anyway. LOL Seriously, stirring noodles was the extent of my efforts. I don’t care though because it’s the only tuna noodle that I can get my kiddos to eat. I’ve tried the homemade stuff with the crumb crust (which is delicious) but.. nope, they aren’t having any part of it. After serving this tuna noodle, I did however, watch my 6-year-old daughter asks for seconds after she cleared her plate in record time. Seems like a win for me. 🙂
It can be hard to get the kiddos to eat fish, unless it’s fish sticks but can you even call that fish? Probably not. My husband has made really gourmet tuna steaks and it was like pulling teeth to get them to try one bite. I know the packaged tuna isn’t the same as fresh but it’s also better than none at all. 🙂
Tuna is jam-packed with high levels of omega-3 fatty acids which is great for heart health. It’s also loaded with vitamins and nutrients and is excellent source of protein.
Tuna Noodle on a Budget
If you’re looking to make dinner on a budget, you won’t get much more inexpensive than this Tuna Noodle. Like us, you probably already have milk in your fridge. All you need now, is 2 packages of Lipton Sides Butter Noodles and 2 small packages of Tuna. That’s it! Pretty cool, huh?
Serve with a side salad and my husbands famous green beans and you’re set!
Lot’s of Luv,
