Creole Tuna

Wal-Mart.com USA, LLC

Have you started your back to school shopping yet? I try to get it done as early as possible because I hate picking from the "leftovers". I hate to admit that I over buy every single year - do you?

With my mind shifting to back to school, I have wanted to share some easy weeknight meals that are great for when the kids return to school in a few short weeks! Everyone could use more of those, right?

If you ever need a meal that relies on pantry staples, this one's for you! There's a very good possibility that you already have all of the ingredients to make this dish on hand! It's very budget friendly too!

  2. Jamie, Thanks for starting to put my mind on back to school. Our house is loving the summer break but momma's really looking forward to a new school year routine to ease use through the days. Wonderful, easy recipe to refer back to when to time comes.
    Here's to wishing it's sooner rather than later.
    Cheers to you and yours,
