There's a big difference living offshore and living onshore. It's not offshore being middle of nowhere cause this city doesn't have much it might as well be in the middle of nowhere. It's the not-having-to-think-what-to-eat when I get back to the living quarters after a long, hard, sweaty day of work (and the laundry service is awesome too!). Even though the food isn't all that great and they tend to taste the same after awhile, it's something to eat. Not to mention, the fridge is always stocked with fruit juices and milk. Milk is bloody expensive here...

After two days of being onshore, I've had enough of thinking what to eat. Having five singles staying in a house, the fridge is rather empty and thinking where to eat out is such a chore. So I decided to make my favourite comfort food, Tuna Pasta Salad. Been ages since I cooked something and I miss cooking terribly!

So here's what you need.

I missed out the eggs.

It's really simple to do it. So simple in fact, I don't think it is considered as cooking. Boil the eggs and pasta. Dice the capsicum, celery and onion. Finely chop the garlic. Drain the corn, pea and tuna of their water and put everything into a mixing bowl. Add enough mayonaise to make it creamy. Add in some salt, pepper and dry Thyme. Mash the eggs once it is hard boiled and add it in. Mix them well and add in the pasta. Mix them again. Leave it in the fridge to chill. Some cheese would be awesome too.

Then tadaa. Ready to eat.

My lovely comfort food in a mug.

You know you love me.

Heheh...i didn't know this was your comfort food. Maybe you can try adding in a little watercress?

I love tuna and sweetcorn sandwiches though. :D

Inaesb: Oh that combo of yours sounds lovely!

Mannpriedo: Sure you can. There's still some in the fridge.

AJ: Ooooo picnic! I want in~~~ Tea party~~~

Savante: This cold pasta is nice ok! And hell no to the in laws.

Medie007: And it is yummy. :P

Robb: Sure thing. See when the time comes.

Jason: You don't like the celery? It makes the salad all crunchy. Shall add in watercress next time. :P

NotHamsap: Oh good idea! But I doubt I can find it here.

Not a drillship. I'm on a platform. Though I'll get to be on a drill ship next year. Drilling campaign!
