  • Lonnie offers a delicious recipe for tuna casserole

    As I may have mentioned in a previous column, I am trying to master the technique of preparing recipes based on exactly what I have in my pantry and refrigerator. It  isn’t easy, however, it is becoming a lot of fun for me.
    When I used to work as a nurse, it was not unusual for a doctor to go shopping in our sample supply cabinet. We used to laugh a lot about that because the doctor would go through each shelf and place items in a little brown paper bag. It was fun to watch because we knew that he/she was doing everything to help cut costs for the patient.
