Now, whilst I know this is not, strictly speaking, Coby’s tuna mornay, in my head it always will be – so that’s what I’m calling it!
Do you know Coby?
Let me tell you about her…
she’s a very sweet Australian lady that I came to know because we both enjoyed spending time at Nigella’s forum on her old web-site, which sadly is there no more. I’ve know her since about 2005.
Coby is a woman who adores her family- that really comes across in everything she does. She is kind, non-judgmental, someone who is a true friend. Someone you’d love to have on ‘your side’.
She is also beautiful, motivating and inspirational, as we read her ongoing adventures to re-haul and re-vamp her family’s diets.
you can read Coby’s (and other great foody writers) words over at the brilliant ‘Claytons blog’.
I remembered the tuna mornay recipe one day, when I’d not got much fresh in the fridge (Was the day before my shopping day) and I needed to make a meal from only store-cupboard ingredients.
You can see the recipe here.
We all really enjoyed it and I’d definitely make it again!
|Topped with tortilla chips and grated cheese|
Thanks Coby for a great recipe! And for being such a lovely, lovely lady.
Do check out ‘The Claytons blog’. It’s always worth a read. If you enjoy recipes using pulses, my ‘Fasolia Yiakhni’ recipe is there too.
Anna, look absolutely delicious! gloria
I should like to be the kind of person about whom such things are written. What a good friend you have.
How lovely a cyber friend are you? Isn't that what's great about this whole web thang? Love that crunchy topping too!!
Oh Coby is indeed such a lovely person! I miss the good old days over at Nigella's forum. I also have a few recipes of Coby's which I make regularly at home. This tuna mornay sounds delicious (and very Australian too!) 🙂
Thanks anonymous ;-)) you've got me curious as to who you are lol xDom, that's sweet of you. Never thought I'd make so many good friends online!Gloria & Angela- thank you!
Any dish topped with tortilla chips and cheese is OK with me! Off to check the recipe 🙂
Can I just agree with everything you said about Coby. She is a dear isn't she? How nice of you Anna to say so. That looks a good recipe. x
Lizzy- too right! :-)Granny- Thanks x it's a lovely easy recipe which everyone seems to like!
Ah this look fab Anna! It's so sad I don't "talk" to Coby as often as I used to, I miss her :)Maria xx
Anna, I am so touched, you have me crying at my desk! Happy tears, and to Granny, Maria, and Anon (Sandy?:)) you're all so lovely thank you. We've known each other for so many years now. How the time flies! ROFL how the waistline spreads and shrinks..a little;)I very much miss the old days, but then, it's perhaps a good thing in one way, as I don't seem to manage the time online I used to.I am glad you enjoyed the recipe Anna – I always worry when other people really try one of the recipes I post – in case my taste is just horrible and they wonder why on Earth I'd suggest they try it! Phew, I lucked out *this* time at least;)Nearly midnight here, and was about to turn off my computer when I saw your message. Anna, thank you, thank you so much. For everything. xx
Another Coby fan here!!Thanks Anna for saying what we all think :-)))
