Comfort Food

Comfort Food

Hey everyone,
  I know its been awhile since I have posted and i want to apologize. I found out something quite terrible- that a friend of mine and my fiance's has passed away. It has really put me off writing for a bit.

In times of trouble, food can play a major role in recuperation. Not only is nutrition vital to our food, it symbolizes a connection to our past and our emotions.  One of my favourite comfort foods is tuna casserole. I know- I'm weird :)My boyfriend made this for me first and it was amazing. It really symbolizes our beginning because it showed his commitment to my gluten free lifestyle.  I also do like chocolate cake and ice cream.

Tuna casserole is incredibly easy to make. I promise pictures as soon as possible :)


 1 or 2 cans of low mercury tuna

1 pkg of gluten free pasta 

1 celery, chopped

1 onion
