The afternoon meal is usually an afterthought in my life, so putting together something new for lunch always feels like a treat to me.
I love finding quick and easy inspiration to keep me fueled well for the day, and also encourage me to slow down and take five.
Sally Clarkson, in her book The Life Giving Table, talks about this idea of slowing down amidst the chaos to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. She actually considers it part of how she gets through the chaos.
“[B]ringing grace to the busy moments of your life is not about performance or perfection, but sustainability…sustainability [is] discovering ways to sustain ourselves when life becomes challenging and developing techniques for tending to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our household along the way.”pp. 127, 128
Sally fondly talks of a cheese board as a sustaining meal on a weary day, and chocolate chip cookies as a promise of hope for the tear-drenched cheek.
It isn’t that these things hold rescue in and of themselves, but that they cultivate moments of rest which remind us of God’s goodness and grace amidst life’s storms.
“We know that storms will come, so we ought to bring umbrellas.”Sally Clarkson
These Curry Tuna Salad Wraps are so delightfully, unexpectedly, delicious. They might just be the perfect “umbrella” for those hectic afternoons.
They are quick to assemble and perfect for packing. These wraps rise far above the standard rank of canned tuna lunches, making them a lovely casual meal for guests, or a clever tea sandwich (in miniature) for a shower.
“When you bring beauty and rest into the occasional chaos of your life, you are teaching your children [and others] how to prepare for the storms of life and live well through them.”pp. 127
I think these simple, delicious Curry Tuna Salad Wraps will help you and yours live well through the storms.
