1 small onion, finely chopped
3 tspn oil from tuna fish
1 pinch hot pepper flakes
1 cup mayonnaise

2-1/4 teaspoon curry powder* (or to taste)
1 10 oz can water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
1/2 fresh cup bread crumbs placed in just enough softened butter to coat bread crumbs
Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees

In a large bowl, mix together flaked tuna, cooked onions with hot pepper flakes, mayonnaise, curry powder and water chestnuts. Blend well. Place tuna mixture in small loaf pan and bake 15 to 20 minutes until thoroughly warmed through and just starting to brown on top. Remove dish from oven and sprinkle top of dish with buttered bread crumbs, then place under broiler to toast lightly. May be served hot or warm on toast points.

Steam carrot sticks, cauliflower, whole green beans, yellow squash and apple rings*. Serve veggies side by side in large platter so quests can choose own vegetable mix.

*Core the apple, leave skin on, slice thinly and saute for a few minutes in butter before adding to vegetables for steaming.
