Honestly, my kids can’t understand why I like tuna salad, or muffins with carrots in them.  Now my Irish Bread, they can’t even imagine why I just don’t buy a loaf… someday they will understand lol… Now lets get down to it.

Tuna Salad

1 lb macaroni shells, cooked

2 small cans tuna

½ chopped onion

1 cup celery

Add as much or as little mayonnaise and then refrigerate. This is one of those old salad recipes that used to show up at all family reunions for some reason lol…

Morning Glory Muffins

Getting Started:

2 cups grated carrots

½ cup raisins

½ cup walnuts

½ cup coconut

1 apple, peeled and grated


The Wet Stuff

3 eggs

1 cup oil

2 tsp vanilla

Fold in:

The Dry Stuff

2 c. flour

1 ¼ c sugar

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp salt

Start off by grating your carrots, the apple and then measuring out the raisins, walnuts and coconut. Now whisk up the eggs, oil and vanilla and add it to the first mixture. When that has been combined, fold in the dry stuff, mixing just until everything has been combined.  Spoon the batter into well greased muffin tins and then bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or so.  Test with  a strand of uncooked spaghetti inserted into the muffins. It should come out clean. Cool for 15 minutes before turning out of muffin tins to cool.

Plain Old  Irish Bread

¼ lb margarine

1 cup sugar

1 egg

2 ½ cups of flour

½ tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup raisins

1 ½ c. milk

Whip the margarine, sugar and the egg together until they are fluffy.

In separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking soda. Now add raisins

Combine the butter mixture with the dry ingredients and then add the milk, a little at a time until thoroughly mixed.

Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake in a 350 oven for about an hour or until a strand of uncooked spaghetti inserted into the loaf comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes before turning out of pan.
