An easy favourite for daughter’s meal tonight, tuna pasta, served in her favourite triangular white china bowl. The pasta cooked, the tuna drained of its spring water then folded through, mayonnaise added, grated cheese on top, and dinner is served.
I’m not sure tuna was readily available when my sister and I were children; we had sardines in tins and salmon, and pilchards were available but I only had them at school. Pasta was macaroni cheese or spaghetti with minced meat. There was no mayonnaise, only salad cream.
Would we sisters have like tuna past bake? I think we would.
April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
