A wife of noble character who can find?...She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue...Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Proverbs 31:10, 26 & 28

Tuna Bake

A friend has asked me to put together all my favourite 'frugal' recipes and this is one that we use all the time in our house. It's my mums recipe for the most part.

2 cups cooked rice
1 large tin of tuna, drained
1 pkt french onion soup mix
1/2 bag frozen vegetable
3/4 cup milk
mashed potato
grated cheese

Mix together rice, tuna, soup mix, milk and frozen vegetables. Spread over the bottom of a lasagne dish. Top with mashed potato and sprinkle grated cheese on top. Cook 180 degrees for 15 mins or until cheese is melted.

I use 3 cups of rice now that the kids are older, to make this go just that little bit further.

Josiah, who's nearly 15 made this all by himself the other night, and didn't do a bad job either. I just forgot to tell him that the rice needed to go in boiling water. Other than that everything was great.
