Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Thank you and you're welcome Sass.

I used Bumble Bee solid white Albacore in water (I edited above). My mom always used tuna in oil when I was a kid (thats all they had back then). I switched to water years ago and like it better. I tried to use the one in oil and it tastes to heavy and oily to me now. I did try it in the mac salad once and the flavor is completely different but if you prefer packed in oil go for it.
