Oh no my Tuna Salad pics…

accidentally erasedSo yesterday I was learning a new feature on my tablet and for some godforsaken reason, I was tinkering with the  SD card and accidentally pressed the “format SD card,” and lost all my pics.  Included among my photos were directional pics for the preparation of Tuna Salad with Elbow noodles.  Aaarrrggghhh!

Needless to say that the salad came out perfect, which means I had great pics.  Now I owe you a recipe for Tuna Salad, no worries I will be making it again soon.  However, today I will be making homemade potato salad with eggs and gherkin pickles, you’re going to love it!  Will post that recipe tomorrow.

Until next time, LP
