Quick and Easy Cherry Coconut Fluff Dessert Recipe

My husband and I were invited to a summer cookout and volleyball extravaganza. Like all good Midwesterners, we automatically knew that includes bringing food for the potluck portion of the party. Unfortunately, earlier in the week due to a raging thunderstorm that took down power line followed by temperatures that shot up into the 90’s (F ) our electric company gave a huge chunk of the state the gift of multiday rolling blackouts early in the week. Fortunately, we got our electricity back in one of the first waves. Even though we didn’t lose any of our food in the freezer (I had the freezer packed with big reusable ice packs similar to these to get them ready for the party) the power outages made grocery shopping for fresh party food ingredients difficult.

Eat from the Pantry Recipe: Spicy Tuna and Caper Pasta

Yesterday the cupboard and refrigerator were a bit bare after cleaning them out before a weekend trip.  I thought it best to eat lunch before I went grocery shopping later that day. If I didn't, I knew I"ll fall into any of the traps in my Six Hidden Grocery Budget Busters post.


  This  pasta with tuna and capers recipe took around 10-15 minutes to make and all with basic pantry staples.

I poked around the pantry and found some pouches of tuna fish behind a jar of capers. I vaguely remember buying capers for a tuna fish recipe I saw in passing online. Unfortunately I apparently pinned every other recipe to my Pinterest boards except the tuna and caper recipe I saw and intended to eventually make.


With the help of my BFF Google, I may not have found the original tuna and caper pasta dinner recipe but instead I found a better one.  I whipped up Simply Recipe's Pasta with Tuna and Capers in White Wine Sauce  with pantry staples for lunch. Yum!


 Here's a photo of the not fancy plated version of the recipe.

 So good. So quick. So easy to make.

I made sure to pin it to my Pinterest recipe board so I can find the recipe and make it again in the future. Follow me @condoblues on Pinterest for more recipe ideas!
