How Do You Like Your SkyFlakes?

Posted by Kero at Thursday, February 04, 2010
I am missing some memes for the coming weeks because I'm busy planning for the holiday. I can only go online when Andreas is asleep. Today, in between making the creme caramel and gelatin, I researched on our visa requirements. Apparently, we need to give a detailed itinerary to go with the cover letter of the application. I needed to finish the itinerary so hubby and I can discuss it over the weekend. Yep - the uncertainty of it all and the risked money is making me all nervous. I need to write to calm my nerves :)

I recently bought a square tub of Skyflakes at Waitrose as alternative to my son's snacks. The little boy happily munch on them plain and can take two crackers in one sitting. I, for one like to dress 'em up. Here's the basic tuna spread I made this morning.

2 tins of white tuna
1 medium onion, chopped
a stick of celery
a pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
salt and freshly ground pepper
100 g mayo

Here's how:

1. Drain tuna. Chop celery. Blanch onion (i like the strong onion flavor so i skip this eeewww).

2. In a medium bowl, add tuna, celery, and onions. Stir in mayo, add a dash of salt and give a good grinding of pepper. I like spreads that are spicy so I add in the pepper flakes. Mix thoroughly.

3. Chill for an hour or two. Spread on crackers.

4. Garnish with parsley or cucumber slices and serve.

So how do you like your flakes? Have a great weekend, everyone!

I usually put coconut jam on my sky flakes or a spoonful of nutella will do the works.

Where are you guys going for the holiday? Exciting!

me, too! i like it with tuna. my sister taught me this and ever since that's how i ate it... she'd open a can of the spiciest tuna, break the crackers and mix the two together. it's a perfect lazy snack since you won't have to spread each and every time you eat ;)
