I was so curious I launched a major research effort including the infamous Pickle Barrel where I have eaten many times in the past. But not tuna that’s for damn sure.:smile:

Google told me of a place in Miami called Norman Brothers which was apparently well known for their cranberry tuna salad.
From a news article on their recent closing:

The most popular item: cranberry tuna salad. "We sell about 80 to 100 pounds of it a day," Suggs reports. "It's something that just kept growing over the years. 

The place may be closed but I’m still deeply disturbed by the idea. And I LIKE tuna 🙄

I also came across this recipe but at the very thought of tuna and passion fruit I had to retire to my bed with a G&T and some gravol.

Ha! I put dried cranberries in my tuna salad most times ;)

I do all manner of additions with chicken salad, but never have gone beyond sweet relish, mayo, AC vinegar, and hard cooked eggs for tuna.  I may experiment.  

 

Yesterday:

Fried egg and deli ham English muffin.  This was a lovely mess a couple of bites in.  My plate was swimming in runny yolk and I was dragging the muffin through it.  Heaven.

Whole Foods sells a popular prepared cranberry tuna salad.  Back when I was still working, I bought it for lunch once in a while.  It was actually pretty good.  It just had tuna, diced red onion, dried cranberries, some mayo and salt and pepper.  I am the only person in my house that likes tuna salad, so I never make it at home.

A little fridge cleanup generally leads to one of these:

Which came out very good.  5 egg frittata with meat-sauced spaghetti, broccoli raab, Parmigiano-Reggiano, chives, parsley, dill.

 

Started on the stovetop in a small enameled cast-iron pan, moved to the CSO and cooked in low oven heat till done.

Smoked turkey, pickled shallot, lettuce and peach sandwich dressed with Vivian Howard's Herbdacious roasted garlic and herb spread from This Will Make It Taste Good

Vivian's book recommends using Herbdacious on a BLP (bacon, lettuce & peach) so I figured it would work with smoked turkey, too.

@Ann_T – I showed Mr. Kim your impeccable and perfect poached eggs and we now have egg envy!

 

@blue_dolphin - I keep meaning to tell you how beautiful your food and your food photography always is.  The peach and ricotta toast from yesterday is especially lovely.

 

Friday:

On Saturday we ran errands and ended up at The Dairy Bar for brunch.  This was the place that used to be the cafeteria for the employees when there was an actual dairy here.  I had the Tricia’s Special:

Biscuit, sausage, hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, and gravy.  Mr. Kim had the club:

After church brunch at Jessica’s friends' restaurant, Satterwhite’s.  Mr. Kim had eggs and country fried steak with rye toast:

I had an open-faced turkey sandwich with fries and green beans:

Martha Stewart recipe for Honey-Caramelized Figs with Yogurt.  We got the figs from the farmer’s market.  This was delicious.

This morning - white peaches and tomatoes on toast - both from the farmer's market:

I said somewhere that the tomatoes we're getting this year are better than we've had in many years and we'll be sad to see them go.  Luckily, we have one farmer's market nearby that is open on Wednesday mornings and I'm planning a tomato run tomorrow!

@Kim Shook, those honeyed figs and yogurt look and sound sublime, as do your peaches and tomatoes.  What is on the toasts along with the tomatoes?  Mayo?  Whipped mascarpone butter?

 

From the sublime to the .... well.....sardine:

Toasted baguette rubbed with garlic and tomato, topped with sardines and pickled shallot, garnished with basil.

More sardines on toast.  This one is a recipe from Melissa Clark's Dinner, Changing the Game. The ingredient list is very similar to the toasts above but instead of rubbing the toasts with a large tomato, this one uses cherry tomatoes that are halved, seared and tossed with sherry vinegar.

Still life with sardine 🙃

Also known as Summer Squash with Canned Sardines from David Kinch's book At Home in the Kitchen.  It's in the salad, soups and starters chapter.  I added a slice of toast to make it more breakfast-y 🤣
