Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch
You can tell this is an old recipe (that doesn't make it bad). Cans of tuna haven't been 6 ounces in a LONG time. I used extra fine noodles, omitted the celery and used frozen baby peas (personal preferences). The baby peas have a much brighter flavor and are not so mealy as mature peas. I like that this recipe didn't call for condensed soup, which has, unfortunately, become a casserole staple. LOVE the mushroom and onion in this. I used crushed potato chips as a topping, as I had no bread crumbs.

Rhubarb-Peach Crisp
I had less rhubarb and more peaches, so I used 3 cups of each (still equaled the same 6 cups of fruit). I increased the sugar to 2 cups in an effort to counteract the sourness of the rhubarb but in hindsight I think I would leave out the extra half-cup of sugar next time, it was quite sweet, my own fault. Despite that, it was extremely delicious!

Fried Butterflied Shrimp
These are, without question, the best fried shrimp EVER! I followed the recipe as written with one small revision...I used panko break crumbs for the second coating. CRISPY & DELICIOUS. I made 2 lbs. for just me and my husband, and we ate all of them!
