I forgot the tuna fish

One of the dinners both my kids like is tunafish casserole. I don't make it weekly, but every time I do make it they both scarf it up, which is very unusual. Most of the time, the Boy eats everything but the plate and the Girl either complains about any sauce or the food being 'too spicy'. She thinks any spice other than salt is 'too spicy'. My tuna casserole isn't special or different than anyone elses tuna casserole. Egg noodles, tuna fish, mushroom soup, and peas flavored with garlic powder and Old Bay seasoning and topped with panko and a nice thick layer of mozzerella cheese. Easy peasy, right?

Except tonight I was distracted by the bank thing (which is solved) and a bunch of other personal stuff, and I totally forgot to put in the tuna fish. Ahem.

Usually I mix the tuna, soup, peas and spices (shhh, don't tell the Girl) in the bottom of the casserole dish, then add the noodles and topping. I did mix up the soup, peas and spices, and something didn't look right, but I had so much on my mind, I just didn't clue into the fact that the tuna was missing in action.

Even after I poured in the egg noodles and mixed up the ingredients and it looked, oh, shorter than it should in the casserole, I didn't figure it out. I just put on the topping, popped it into the over, and walked right by the cans of tuna on the shelf.

OH! Light dawns over MarbleHead!

I say to the Boy, "I forgot to put in the tuna" and the kid just completely cracked up. He thinks I have alzheimers. I'm beginning to wonder if I do myself! I mean, I have been so forgetful lately and my spelling is atrocious all of a sudden. I know it's just my usual heart stuff, and it's normal for someone with my heart issues, but geesh.

How does one forget the tuna in tuna casserole?

For what it's worth, I opened the tuna, lifted up the baked casserole, and stuffed the tuna underneath, so when I dished it out, you actually couldn't tell. How sad is that?
