Work has been insanely busy these past two weeks.  That combined with a recent trip to my parents, who live three hours away, and a trip to NYC has left me with little time to cook.  I had to throw my menu planning out the window and make tuna salad sandwiches instead last week.  It could be called “no-recipe tuna salad sandwiches” because the measurements below are rough estimates.  Each time I make tuna salad, I just eyeball everything and add ingredients according to taste and look.  As in, “this looks about right.”  Last time, I tried to bring myself to measure it all out, but I was in too much of a hurry.  Therefore, this recipe is very forgiving and can be adjusted to suit your own tastes.

NYC trip pictures and post coming soon!
