Spicy Tuna and Potatoes and Bonfire Night!

I made mung dal today and a very quick and easy dish with tuna and potatoes. I have been working hard to write all the blog posts for the seafood blog, as we are going to the UK next monday!!
We are going to visit family and take Jasmine to her first bonfire night/Guy Fawkes Night, it happens every November 5th in the UK there is a big bonfire and fireworks, its great. It is to celebrate the failed attempt of Guy Fawkes and others at blowing up the houses of parliment.

We used to always say remember remember the 5th of Nov here is an old rhyme
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of* no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd (or by God's mercy*)
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring. (Holla*)
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!

Will share pictures on the blog. We are then going to France for a week, can't wait, I will try and blog along the way sharing family fun and recipes and good eats.
