A cold meal on a hot day

The humidity is back making the day feel hotter than what it really is.  So this morning, I thought to myself, "Self, why don't you mix together a cold tuna hot dish." Then I realized that I couldn't call it a hot dish so it must be a salad?  Oh well, whatever it is called I made it and this is what I mixed together:
A bag of frozen peas
2 cans of tuna (I may add two more)
1/2 onion chopped fine
finely chopped celery (about equal to the onion)
corn - (We had sweet corn last night and I de-cobbed the four leftover ears and mixed them in just to use them up.)

Then I added the cooked and cooled noodles and mayonnaise.  I had cooked up a bag of elbow noodles.  I just glob huge amounts of mayo in and as it rests throughout the day it absorbs into noodles combining the tastes together.

Add Noodles and Mayo
At the last minute I decided to add some chopped up cheese (A friend periodically gives Dale block of soft cheese.  There was a full block in the refrigerator.)  I also added sea salt and freshly ground pepper.  We will add more salt and pepper right before we eat.

I am hungry.  Is it time to eat supper yet?  ... I know this is best served after it has rested a minimum of four hours and it is even better the second day!
