Weekend Breakfast #02 : Tuna Linguine and Cucumber-Dill Egg Sandwich

The kids were enrolled in a swimming lesson. So their normal routine on weekends usually starts with a fun activity. If swimming is to them, then cooking is for me. Because this translates to having me prepare a filling breakfast to provide them the much needed energy for such a physical engagement. No complains though, it's an errand that I'm always more than willing to take. As usual, I'm happy to serve any wandering palate. Last weekend, their plate consisted of a carbo-rich meal - Tuna Linguine, Cucumber-Dill Egg Sandwich, Baked Beans and Fresh Fruits.
