What on earth is "tuna wiggle"? Do I really want to know?  ;D

Thankfully, my mother seems to have missed that one.   :D

Tuna Wiggle

1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can tuna fish (drained)
1 small can mushrooms, chopped and drained
1 box frozen peas (optional, but my mother always included them)
1 2 lb. bag egg noodles

Cook egg noodles as usual. Drain and return to stove. Mix in soup, tuna fish, peas, and mushrooms. Cook over high heat until hot. Remove and serve.

Enjoy!

Leslie

I'm guessing "tuna wiggle" is canned tuna inside a jello mold.  That's enough to make a vegetarian out of me.


 :P  Me, too.

Thanks, Paul.

(Fruit in jello I honestly don't mind--for a summer dessert, Mother used to put diced apple in lime jello, and I liked that; very cool and refreshing. But tuna?  :P )

OH - you mean tuna noodle casserole.  My Mom made it with Campbell's Cream of Chicken soup and minus the mushrooms.  Good stuff!   :D

Leslie, that doesn't look like it would wiggle very much.

Actually, to my 1950's-raised self, tuna wiggle doesn't sound half bad.  ;D

I thought it might refer to the noodles being wiggly, like those spiral-y ones.  :)

to get this thread back on track, how about

THANKSGIVING AT THE NICOLL-JENDREK HOME

Roast Turkey
Stuffing made with bread, onions, salt, pepper, chicken broth and lots of butter
Gravy
Mashed sweet potatoes wtih marshmallows on top
Creamed onions*
Brussel sprouts with chestnuts (I loathe this dish and refuse to eat or make, so my mother always gets stuck with the job)
Homemade cranberry sauce (use the recipe on the bag; it's easy)
Aunt Cuyler's lime-cheese salad (another one of those 50s confections with lime jello, mayonnaise, cottage cheese, evap milk and nuts)
Pumpkin pie for dessert

My recipe for creamed onions is over on the main courses & side dishes thread.
