Tuna Salad!

A couple of weeks ago Brian’s friend from his former work gave us some salmon and sea bass that he had caught and a can of lemon tuna that he had caught and canned. This tuna has been starting us in the face basically everyday for 2 weeks now and the time had come to bust open the can and eat it! You have no idea how many times I considered cracking it open just to have a bite. But it was a sizeable can of tuna and with no plans for the rest of it that would just not be sensible.

We ate that tuna on a salad (of course!). And it was tasty, totally worth the wait! The tuna salad had grilled asparagus, grill roasted walnuts, onions, cucumbers, pickles, celery, broccoli, and carrots. I topped our salads with some tangy lemon mustard dressing and a little vegan goddess dressing.


It was such a yummy salad that Lexi finished hers and asked for more. Amazing, since she is the least enthusiastic salad eater out of all of us. Maybe it was the tuna, or maybe the roasted walnuts, who knows!

Additionally, this is the second night in a row that I grilled and I’m planning on grilling tomorrow too. I’m on a grilling hot streak! Today was not planned. The girls wanted to play outside in their pool so instead of cooking the asparagus and walnuts inside I brought them out so I could cook dinner and let the girls play safely. I also grilled some eggs in muffin tins to send with Brian for breakfast or Izzy for lunch.

The mornings have been a little hectic getting lunches in lunchboxes, making sure the girls have gotten enough cereal and fruit, packing my breakfast (I just can’t eat a real breakfast until after 9), and packing a breakfast for Brian. We are going through tupperware like crazy since everyone is packing food (except little Miss Lexi)!


I’ve never made this before but eggs and some add ins with the smoky grilled flavor have got to be good, right? Hope so because it was crazy easy, literally crack some eggs into greased muffin tins and add what you want or don’t and call it good. Stay tuned for grilling night number 3! Let’s see so far I grilled veggies, eggs, cookies, and nuts. What’s missing? Meat, tomorrow there will be some, pretty much out of necessity than actual desire.
