Wow I have really missed some of your cooking but I haven't done much on Mylot as I used too and with over 400 odd on my friend's lists it is hard to go around all of them as regularly as I like..but I will do my best lol. My son is an avid fan of tuna and I just love pies.I will definitely put this on my menu list for my next shop..We run out of ideas to cook and I want to do new stuff. Thanks for this new recipe it has made my day.
