Wait for it…

Wait for it…

You’ve gotta enjoy the anticipation…

After much tasting, testing, choking, writing, gagging, posting, planning, voting AND waiting, I am happy to announce that the winner of the “Let’s Sing A Tune To Tuna Contest” is…


Tuna Pizza!

And the crowd goes wild!


That means it’s official. Tuna Pizza is THE WORST mid-century tuna recipe out there. Hands down, no more takers, end-of-the-line worst. The voting has proven this!

Congrats to Sharon and Bob, who had the questionable taste and gastronomic turpitude (say what?) to submit this disgusting bad boy of a recipe for our contest.

But don’t be sad! The tuna madness ain’t ova.  Next week we are going to announce two more prizes for this tuna tomfoolery:

The Best Tuna Recipe


Tom’s Secret Special Choice

Which will both be chosen by me and Tom. Come on back next Weds to see who will win the honors and the accolades of the best recipe, and the tuna recipe that made Tom’s tummy the most happy!

    I am proud and honored to receive this award and to share it with the lovely Sharon.
    I am also confused, as I had no idea I had “turpitude.” Don’t they make a cream for that?
