Who said i was making and eating all 12 sandwiches? Im not the only one around here that eats. What i said was that the way i make my sandwiches i "could" get 12 out of a can; not that i make 12 and eat them all.

Apologies. It sounded to me like you were making them for yourself.

I have to be honest, if you made me a sandwich with 1/12 of a can of tuna (assuming I liked tuna), I'd feel pretty gypped.

Unfortunately thats the downside of being on a budget. You have to stretch that dollar and make things last even if it means doing with less than what youd like.

Your sandwiches consist of 2 tablespoons of tuna salad which is not a meal that would keep someone satisfied or nourished. A serving size of protein should be about 3 ounces.
I usually get those no drain pouches or cups that are just under 3 ounces and that is enough for one sandwich. A 5 or 6 ounce can would make 2 servings

Thats funny...i can make do just fine with a sandwich like that. All i need is for the feeling of hunger to go away. I dont need to be super stuffed and have to lie down on the couch like i just had Thanksgiving dinner.

congrats on losing weight!! I can see why you'd have to go on a diet,eating 12 sandwiches at a time

seriously, tuna is one of them superfoods, high protein, low fat- when I was on a strict diet yrs ago, id eat three cans a day,, just open the can and eat-id carry a can opener around- in my car at my desk
the shameful food Nazi's would give me hell for eating tuna, something to do with dolphins or turtles

do you have a preference, of tuna fish in oil or water?? or brand?

No real preference as far as brand (either Bumble Bee or Chicken of the Sea) but i do prefer the albacore in water.

I think one reason i can make do with such a slight amount is because the taste and smell is soo overpowering to me. I can barely stand it so one little piece in something is not unnoticeable by me.

I just made a container of tuna salad. From a 5 ounce can i made nearly 14 ounces of salad. So at 2 ounces of salad per thats 7 sandwiches from 1 can. Couldve made more but ran out of mayo.

Originally, you state you can create a dozen sandwiches from a two ounce can of tuna, but here you state you can only create seven sandwiches from a five ounce can of tuna?

read last sentence of said post.

Also, 2 ounces was too much it seems. I could actually drop it down to 1 -1 1/2 oz.

LOL - I suppose you were going to make at least thirty sandwiches from that five ounce can of tuna, BUT you ran out of mayo. I'm going to make tuna sandwiches as I always have - you go ahead and do the same (and buy more mayo next time).
