Salsa Tunafish Sandwich

I apologize for the lack of posts in the last week.  I am in the midst of a crisis and trying to figure it out.  I LOVE writing this blog and finding/adapting/creating/making new recipes but I have discovered something.  Writing a food blog leads to this equation:

Making recipes+ tasting + tweaking recipes + tasting + tasting = putting on 10 pounds in 3 months

So I have been struggling with how to make this work (plus zipping my jeans) and am going to try this equation:

Make new recipe + small taste + enlisting other tasters + walking + bike riding + ‘healthy’ meals

Hopefully the result will be my pants zipping :))

Whenever I feel like eating ‘healthy’ for some reason I crave this recipe for lunch (my husband and daughters think I’m nuts and make faces but I enjoy this).  It makes me feel like I am making a small step and leads to me eating healthier all day.


Salsa Tunafish Sandwich
1 can of  Chunk Light Tuna in Water, drained
1 Tbsp Nonfat Plain Yogurt
2 or more Tbsp of salsa
2 Slices of cheese
4 slices of bread of choice, toasted (I like wheat bread)
Mix together tuna, yogurt, and salsa (add as much salsa as you like to increase heat).
Divide the tuna to make 2 sandwiches.

2012 Goals and Taco Dip

Welcome to 2012!!!!!!!  May it be filled with peace, love, joy, lots of good food and Sweet Mornings!!!

As the New Year starts it’s time to set a few goals for the year.

Goal 1:  To bake bread of all types.  Bread, rolls, pizza dough, I want to learn to make them all!!!!  Up to this point every time I have attempted yeast bread or rolls not in a bread machine it is a DISASTER!!!!  This year I am going to change it.

Goal 2:  Meatless Mondays.  Enjoy meatless Monday’s and convince my husband that a meatless meal is yummy and good for us.  My daughter is up for the challenge so it should be fun.

Goal 3:  Breakfast!!!!! I am going to try something new for breakfast at least once a week.

I will be sharing my journey as I try to meet these goals.  I have a feeling it is going to be a messy trip J

Oh, since it is New Year’s Day we need something to munch on.  Taco dip is always a good choice, a little spicy, a little cheesy, and a little crunchy.  Throw in a little lettuce and a few tomatoes and you can convince yourself it is healthy J  The recipe has been around for a while but it is always good to revisit old favorites on a holiday.
