Cranberry and Dill Tuna Boat Sandwich

Tuna is great as a pantry item to have on hand.  Sometimes it just sounds so good for lunch on a soft piece of bread or roll.

I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for breakfast this morning because I was in a rush.

But I’m not sure if I could ever have tuna in the morning unless maybe it was for brunch.

When I make tuna I always add dill whether it’s dried or fresh.  It’s such a wonderful accent flavor for tuna.

And adding something sweet like raisins or dried cranberries is fun and different too.

To cut out a few carbs now and then I’ll make a sandwich like this one with just half of a piece of bread.

But in all honesty, after eating a tuna sandwich recently with just one piece of bread (to cut carbs) I snuck a few pieces of Halloween candy out of the bags that are for trick-or-treaters only.

So a lot of good having just one piece of bread did me when I added candy to the menu.

I try to buy Halloween candy that I don’t like, but when I’m desperate for something sweet I can’t be trusted.

Happy Halloween to you.  And thank you so much for stopping by.

Let’s check out the ingredients.
