Tuna Casserole


Who doesn't remember how popular tuna noodle casserole was in the 1950's! I don't think it has ever lost its popularity as I remember making it for my inlaws just shortly after my first marriage in 1972. I remember thinking I should double the recipe so there would be enough ... but the only thing I doubled was the amount of noodles. The dish turned out so dry you in was like sawdust in your throat, but no one said a thing. I do remember being so embarrassed and was thinking that my mother-in-law probably thought her poor son would starve to death with a wife who couldn't make a simple casserole.
