Rebelling and the Tuna Can

You know how moms have all different rules when you are growing up? Keep your room clean, wash the dishes, don't use the china, do use your toothbrush daily, and deodorant. "Everyday mom I have to put on deodorant? But I didn't take a shower yesterday so surely the little white specs of residue will do the trick. Okay FINE! YOU win. I will slap some on, but I'm not happy about it." *SLAM DOOR*

God bless moms everywhere.

All these rules are the norm, but my mom had one very special rule. It was a thing. You must wash out your empty tuna can AND the top before placing it in trash can and then you must proceed by washing all sides of the sink to ensure that there are no pieces of tuna left. Well since leaving the nest I have rebelled. I don't rinse out the can or the ever.  Mom, if you are reading, forgive me, I have failed you in this area.  Call it laziness or a lack of drive, I just cant rinse out any more tuna cans or lids.  So if any of you come over and my house smells a little fishy, I probably just made these yummy QUICK tuna patties.  ENJOY!


Quick and Easy Tuna Patties


1 regular can of tuna drained (and rinsed if you please...don't do a rebel)

1/4 cup bread crumbs (I used italian)

1 egg

1 Tbsp coconut oil

Lemon juice

sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder

Combine tuna, bread crumbs, egg and seasonings in a bowl.  Place the coconut oil in a small sauce pan and turn heat on medium high.  Pat the mixture into patties, mine made four, and place them 2 at a time in the oil.  Allow the patty to brown on each side.  After you have placed them on a plate sprinkle some lemon juice on top.

Normally this is where I would insert a picture of my cute kids eating my creation and then put KID APPROVED.  My kids won't eat these...therefor these are not Bobay kid approved. However, if your kids try them and like them, send me a pic and I'll put it on my instagram :)
