|Nice warm meal, not fancy, but delicious.|
I use one large can tuna.
This is the simple recipe for white sauce.
|Not a lot of extra spices.|
2 tbs butter 1 c milk
2 tbs flour dash salt
Melt butter and flour, mix; slowly add milk; stir in the drained tuna to the white sauce.
|Fresh parsley is very pungent.|
Having fresh parsley is amazingly vibrant as an addition to the tuna both as an ingredient and a garnish. We sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
This meal serves four. It can freeze, too.
|Ivy trailers making roots..|
But I still have the topiary structures for ivy, and I've just today determined to regrow them. One will be a gift for my daughter with the ivy from her lily-filled wedding bouquet. It's going to take time, but that's a good thing. Very rewarding.
First, I trimmed my current ivy plant to trailers about 18 inches long,
and put the ivy trailers in water to grow roots. I repurposed milk jugs after cleaning them, naturally. Not glamorous, but functional.
Second, I cleaned up the topiary structures. They'll be waiting for several months before I plant the trailers into the pots and begin to train them.
|An arch topiary form.|
|This is so pathetic, my former Xmas tree. Reminds me of Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Fir Tree.'|
