Dear Tim Cook:
As Apple CEO, you must be proud of your new Apple Watch. I received an email from a reader saying he was replacing his trusted Rolex with your new creation. Frankly, I think the battery life needs a bit of work.
Life is busy these days for nearly everyone I know.
That's why I'm always relieved to have a go-to dinner on a busy night that's still tasty. Three-cheese Tuna Bumsteads have always fit that bill for my family.
They're nothing fancy, but they hit the spot.
Three-Cheese Tuna Bumsteads
