Mid-Week Tuna Casserole

Some days everything goes just how you planned it. 

Some days everything goes wrong right from the moment you get up.

And some days everything is going smoothly until 3:30pm when everything falls apart. These are the days you get home to find out that whilst you do have rum (hooray) your coke is flat (fail) and you only figure this out once you have mixed your drink (epic fail) and then your stuck drinking a flat rum and coke which really doesn't make you feel any better at all. These are days when you want something quick and easy and delicious and comforting for dinner, not something that requires every pot and pan you own and results in a sink full of washing up. 

So while I sit here with my flat rum and coke, 3 pots on the stove, a meatloaf in the oven and a sink full of washing up, let me tell you about how you can avoid this very situation. 

a) Stay in bed. What can possibly go wrong from the comfort of your own bed?! 

b) Go for a walk, buy a new lipstick, get your hair and nails done instead of having a drink at the end of a long day.....if you are rolling your eyes at this suggestion, then try keeping ample supplies of lemonade / coke on hand instead. 

c) Make this tuna casserole. It's quick, delicious, comforting and easy! Plus you can eat it in bed if the mood takes you. 

You will need

1 onion diced
2 sticks of celery diced
2 carrots diced
100g of baby spinach
425g tin of tuna in spring water drained
425g tin of corn kernels drained
1/2 cup milk
1 heaped tspn curry powder
2 tbspn plain flour
100g grated cheese
4 potatoes peeled and diced

Pre-heat oven to 160C.

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water, place on the stove over medium high heat and bring to the boil.

In a large fry pan over medium heat, add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add the celery, carrot and curry powder and cook for a further 5-6 minutes or until carrots are softened.

Add the milk, plain flour, grated cheese, tuna and corn. Stir everything really well to combine.

Stir through the spinach until wilted.

Spoon mixture into a baking dish and top with potatoes. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake for 15 mins or until potato is golden. Serves 4.

d) On the off chance you don't have access to rum, nail polish, lip stick, walking tracks or tuna casserole....may I suggest you get yourself some pregnant sheep....coming home to a newborn lamb is guaranteed to brighten anyone's day! Isn't he just the cutest, sweetest little thing???
