Tuna Sandwich, Mushroom Soup & Potato Salad

My friend, Miss Bunny and I are having Korean drama-marathon at my place tonight. Before we start our crazy activity, I prepared a simple dinner for us, and I included her boyfriend as well, since he's sending her to my place.

The recipes are shown below and I will end my post here as I need to get back to my drama soon. Just in case I do not have time for another post before 1st Jan 08, here's wishing everyone, Happy New Year and a super-duper exciting year ahead!!

Tuna Sandwich Recipe

Tuna mixture:
3 ciabatta
350g canned tuna in oil
80g sun-dried tomato, chopped coarsely
3 tablespoons finely chopped celery
3 tablespoons finely chopped onions
Salt and pepper, to taste
4-5 tablespoons red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil

2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
2 tomatoes, sliced

1) Drain tuna from the cans. Add in chopped celery, onions and sun-dried tomato.
2) Add in red wine vinegar and olive oil to the tuna mixture. Add in salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly. Set aside.
3) Assemble the sandwich: Cut ciabatta horizontally in half. Spread butter on both sides of the bread. Layer with lettuce, tuna mixture, egg slices and top with the tomato slices. Cover with the top of the bread. Repeat with the other two pieces of ciabatta.
