“I used to make this for my daughter and her little friends, when they would come over. It was very cold and they didn't want soup, they would ask me for something "fancy" for their luncheon. I used to make the little frozen puffed pastries and would serve the tuna in them! It turned out beautifully and they were overjoyed! Of course, I enjoyed it too. Let me clarify - she was 4 at the time, she wouldn't be caught dead eating it today - too many carbs!”
