Ore Ida tator tots are gluten free

Again, I may be the last one to find this out, but Ore Ida Tator Tots (and many other of their products) are gluten free. Says it right on the bag. LOVE.

I went many years without a tator tot. Then one day I was at my sister's house and feeling peckish, so she busted them out of the freezer and heated some up in the oven. She even pointed out the gluten free-ness. Amazing.

Tuna mac & cheese with peas and spinach

Trying to eat more veggies, so I veggi-fied this batch of tuna mac & cheese.

Here you go:

Cooked gluten free noodles, still hot
1 batch of cheese sauce, substituting cheddar cheese
frozen peas
chopped fresh spinach
1 can of tuna, drained
1 tsp mustard powder

Mix the ingredients together in a pan, topping with extra shredded cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted.  Sprinkle with paprika for extra yumminess.

P.S. If you choose to make the lower-fat version of the cheese sauce, a little cream cheese melted in helps make it creamier.
