RECIPE BACKSTORY
Well, It's Lenten Season and I don't eat meat on Friday! I eat alot of different seafood during lent and would love to eat more seafood all year long! I love seafood! When Lana (bblue) posted this recipe, the 1st thing I thought of, was it sounded kind of like a tuna melt but baked and I knew I was going to make it! Boy, it was delicious! Nice and creamy and the crescent rolls really worked well! I decided when I made it, I was going to use my recipe for tuna salad even though the one Lana posted sounded wonderful!
