Last night my hub and I had a really soupy kind of tuna macaroni and cheese casserole. Since the weather is still so hot, I try to avoid turning on the oven. So after I assembled the macaroni and cheese dinner, tuna, and can of mushroom soup, I just zapped it in the microwave for a couple of minutes until it was good and hot.
Then we sat down to eat the casserole with a yummy veggie salad with cukes and squashes out of our garden and store bought lettuce, kale, and tomatoes. (Our tomatoes are still green on the kitchen table.)
Something reminded me that back in the day my mom used to serve this kind of dinner with saltine crackers. So I dived into the freezer remembering that I had a bag of crackers hiding there on the top shelf. When I put this bag on the dinner table, my hub looked a little bewildered. In our 33 years of blissful married life, I had never served saltine crackers with noodles. He wasn't too fond of the salt, so this was not a hit with him. I probably will serve garlic bread the next time.
But back to the saltines with spaghetti. My mom usually put a box of those on our family dinner table when she served her family famous meatballs and spaghetti. Were the crackers her idea as a substitute for bread, or did someone before her come up with this "delicacy"?
Whatever. I like it.
