2 pouches (4.5 oz.) StarKist Tuna Creations®, Herb and Garlic
½ lb. (8 oz.) orzo
2 cups broccoli florets
1 cup chopped sweet onion
1 tbsp. Olive Oil
1-1/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese, divided
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. flour
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350°
Cook orzo according to package directions. During the last 5 minutes of cooking add broccoli. Drain and rinse well with cold water to stop cooking. Place in large bowl.
Cook onion in olive oil for 5 minutes over medium-low heat until just soft. Place in a bowl with orzo and broccoli. Add tuna and 1 cup Gruyere cheese and mix well.
Melt butter in frying pan. Gradually mix in flour and cook over low heat for 5 minutes, being careful not to burn it. Gradually stir in milk, stirring constantly to prevent clumping. Cook over low heat stirring constantly for 5 minutes until it thickens.
Pour milk mixture over tuna and orzo and stir well. Place in a 2 qt casserole and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Distribute remaining ¼ cup cheese over top of casserole and bake an additional 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
As Obama fizzles out, as he loses legitimacy, the power brokers will come up with other figureheads and slogans for American liberals and conservatives to become passionate about. These candidates will jabber, jab and insult each other. As in professional wrestling, the battle will appear fierce. Barack, meanwhile, can look forward to a lucrative memoir and six-figure speaking fees. Even that man of malapropisms and snafus, the much despised Bush, is getting $150,000 each time he opens his mouth these days.
We can only hope. The world didn't need another war, the country certainly didn't. I imagine that the war must be a huge shock for his most devoted and extreme fans. But this is the real Barack and why it would have been much smarter to have voted for Ralph Nader.
