Why I haven’t made tuna patties prior to this is a mystery to me. But I finally did it, and you can bet I’ll do it again. They are delicious!! Why didn’t somebody tell me? Why didn’t somebody shake me by the shoulders and say, “wake up Tiffany, you’re missing out!“?? Why, why, why???
Seriously. There should be a little foodie elf that follows me around and kicks me in the shins every time I fail to cook something delicious. Every time I wonder what to make for dinner. Every time I consider making chicken… again…I mean really, these couldn’t be more simple! Such a great weeknight meal!
