Tuna, Corn, and Celery Sandwiches and Creatures of Habit [RECIPE]

Good Morning Everyone!

How are you doing today? Would you consider yourself to be a creature of habit? I know I am. I have my morning and nighttime routine pretty much fine tuned. Throughout the day I have certain milestones I like to hit which mentally marks my own progress on my “to do” list. I also have a certain way I like to do things. For example, when I’m cooking I like to use my chopping block and then immediately afterward I place it in the sink and wipe down the counter-top. Mr. Noob Chef sometimes thinks I’m a tad OCD because I can’t walk away from a dirty kitchen. Oh well.

We all have our little quirks and that is what makes us special and unique, right? Similarly we all have our own preferences in how we make a tuna sandwich. Some people go heavy on the mayonnaise and mix it until it’s super creamy. Others like to keep it light and chunky. Still others use Vegannaise and leave dairy out the equation altogether! I stumbled across a tuna and corn recipe and did a double take. Canned corn… in tuna? I had never tried it before. I like canned tuna, and I like canned corn. It couldn’t be bad, right? It wasn’t. In fact… it was delicious! Simply delicious. So I began playing with vegetables to put into tuna salad. Before long I came up with this blend that is a step out of my normal routine. Yes, this creature of habits was daring to eat something totally different and new. And guess what? I’m loving it.

PS: this tuna salad mix is incredible on a freshly baked potato too. I know… it sounds crazy. But I promise it’s true 🙂 .

Alright my friends, I’ll stop yapping in your ears and let the recipe speak for itself. The hard-boiled egg in this mix is completely optional. Sometimes I put it in and other times I leave it out. Regardless, the mix still tastes fabulous and is very filling. So hang onto this recipe as the days warm up in the months ahead. Have a wonderful day everyone, and as always, keep on cooking! ❤
