Every now and then I get real hungry for a big salad with either grilled chicken or tuna on it. Last night was just such a night. Other than getting tuna fresh, which I sometimes do and usually sear it, this is the only canned tuna I ever eat: High Seas Tuna. It’s all surface, line caught, young tuna. No water or oil. Hand packed, cooked and sealed once. Makes it’s own juice, you never need to drain it, and the juice is delicious.
I can’t say enough good about it. …Except to say that the smoked? Unbelievable.
Anyway, this was a can of regular, a can of smoked, seasoned with a bit of garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika and lemon juice. Alongside is romaine, chopped spinach, chopped carrot and chopped celery, dressed with olive oil, balsamic and a bit of additional lemon juice. Click for the hi-res version
Well, I don’t think I’ve yet to find a salad that a garnish of fresh, ripe, plump, juicy and sweet blueberries didn’t improve. Blueberries are almost like bacon to me: everything’s better with them. Try this: make a plain omelet in Nutiva coconut oil which has a bit of a sweet taste, top with blueberries. …And, I dunno, some fresh whipped heavy cream might work too. Just thought of that.
Alright, back to productive writing, then I’m making a "Meatza" for the first time in months. TV night tonight: American Idol and Survivor. Long time fan of both. I think House might be the only other network show I watch (that shouldn’t surprise anyone).
…Oh, yea: 80g of protein in that. I put away about 55-60 of it, more probably than most people get in a whole day.
