I am turning into my nonna.
Today I had one of her favorite lunches- pasta with canned tuna. I had about 2.5 oz of angel hair with a can of tuna in olive oil, drained. The oil from the tuna works as a great sauce over the pasta.
[Reminder: I am blogging my meals this week- every last bite- to show you how I eat and why I eat it. This is the extended reply to several Ask Me Anything questions I received.]
The water was put on to boil because I was just so hungry. I know the photo is hideous.
In the afternoon I took a 10 minute break to bake some muffins. This time I used 1 pear and really chopped it small, and I made the muffins in a mini muffin tin. I baked them to bring with us to Colorado tomorrow! PB and I are going with another couple to Beaver Creek (near Vail). We would love dining suggestions and more!!!
I think PB is ready to show off his newly acquired snowboarding moves (he is linking turns! and well!)
Back to the muffins. Of course I had to taste test two of them. They were just the way I remembered them… a bit dry, not very sweet, but perfectly satisfying. You don’t have to feel guilty eating these. Find the original recipe here.
Later in the afternoon I had some Oikos vanilla yogurt with fresh raspberries, a couple of tablespoons of Kashi Go Lean Crunch, and 1.25 Weetabix biscuits. I almost skipped my snack this afternoon, but I got super hungry around 3. This was great… although I did miss the chocolate chips! I am one of those people who is sad when a delicious meal or snack is gone. Are you that way?
I have a really fun giveaway coming soon. Hint: it involves creative shoes… Get excited!!!!
