Pandagirl has ballet class late on Thursdays so dinner is in the hands of my husband. And they are very capable hands. There are few things sexier than a man who knows his way around the kitchen...one of them is a man who knows his way around the kitchen and plays guitar but I digress...
Jeeps has a very decent repertoire of dinners and beats me flat-out at making omelets. Tonight Panda and I came home to tuna cakes, cous-cous and steamed broccoli.
And he cleaned up, too.
Tuna cakes are a fallback dinner around here. They're easy and versatile and adapt to whatever you have around the pantry. I'd give you a recipe but really it's like making meatloaf: you just throw it together. Two cans of tuna, half a chopped onion (or dried minced onion). Chopped red pepper. And/or some thawed frozen corn. And/or some drained, rinsed black beans. And/or some scallions. Got some leftover steamed cauliflower or broccoli? Hell, chop it up and throw it in the bowl. Seasonings, or seasoned bread crumbs. Eggs to hold it together. A little mayo if you're short on eggs.
There's no wrong way to make these.
Form into patties and fry them up. You can make them little to stuff inside a taco shell. Or make big ones to eat on a roll with lettuce and tomato.
