I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Tuna Pasta Salad

Well, the temperature has already hit the 30°C mark (that's 86°F) and it's only the middle of May. Time for some dinner salads and al fresco dining!

2 cups penne pasta
2 - 170 g net/120 g drained canned albacore solid white tuna (about 8.5 oz)
1 cup diced tomatoes
2 tbsps fresh chopped parsley
1/2 English cucumber, diced
1 sweet red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup diced feta
2 handfuls mixed greens
4 hardboiled eggs, halved
black olives

1/4 cup light olive oil
1/4 tsp lemon zest
juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 tbsps white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper or Mrs Dash table blend to taste

First of all I have to say, this is my earliest harvest of parsley ever. I picked this Italian parsley on May 12th!! Ok, back to the recipe.

Start by cooking the penne. Once cooked, drain and rinse in cold water and set aside. Prepare the hard boiled eggs and cut all the veggies. Drain the water from the tuna then break into chunks and drain in a colander.

That's most of the work! Just need to shake up the dressing and toss everything together.

Plate with eggs and black olives and you're done!

Ready for al fresco dining!
