1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
15 oz can peas
6 oz can tunafish


egin by melting the margarine in a 2-quart saucepan. Use a fork or a whisk to stir in the flour making sure it is smooth. Gradually stir in the milk. If you have a whisk you can go a little faster because a whisk can beat out any lumps. If you are using a fork then go very slowly so you can keep the mixture smooth. When the mixture is smooth stir in the sugar, salt and pepper. Cook and stir the sauce until it begins to boil. Allow it to boil for a full minute by the clock. Now remove the sauce from the heat.

Drain the peas and the tuna. Stir gently and reheat only till boiling again. Do not overcook or the peas will get mushy.
Serve over buttered toast or biscuits or rice or noodles. Makes 4 servings. This dish is inexpensive and surprisingly delicious. The salt may be replaced with celery salt or garlic salt if desired.
