Retro Recipes Tested Here!
And there are those damned olives again. I’m beginning to get angry whenever I see some retro-mess with olives, 9 out of 10 times there are olives. Why? It’s like they were some major food group, decades ago.
I wish you could see my face right now – I call it “stunned barf face”
Noooooooooooo! I thought I was going to see Tom eat this!!! Dang it!
Waffles – ruined. Tuna – ruined. Cream of Mushroom soup – ruined. 3 strikes and you’re out. (Forget the olives. I hate olives.)
In some strange way, I’m even more disgusted about the sprig of parsley. It’s the ultimate “screw you” to the poor waffle.
I grew-up in the 60′s and 70′s. My mom often made Tuna on Toast for dinner (when my dad was not home). It was a can of tuna mixed in a roux and served over toast. I really wasn’t too bad
Cindi you and I must be the same age—my mom made that as part of our regular rotation. It was really a treat for us though because she usually made biscuits. She did the roux like your mom but then also added the cream of mushroom soup. Toast was reserved for nights when she must have been to tired to bake. Never those olives though, thank goodness she did not cook with them. Blech!
Im 45. Mommy did this on toasted wonderbread with campbells cream of mushroom soup and tuna. It was cheap and quick and these were staples in her pantry.
Dad and I didnt hate it. We knew it was a quickie meal. It was a hand me down from her mother. Wasnt half bad. I was surprised that she left out the green olives.
