I had computer problems and was on a vacation in NOLA. It took a long time to fix the puter.

Good looking dinners, medtran and Joey!

Joey, it's so nice to see you back. I was wondering where you were and have missed your fabulous looking dinners.
____________

BUSY day today, so this evening's dinner was a simple one. My local grocery store had beautiful fresh cherries at 2/lbs for $5 and I couldn't wait to have some. I ended up with a bowl of those babies, sliced cucumbers, and a leftover grilled chicken thigh from yesterday.

[QUOTE=medtran49;1465977I still can't believe I'm willingly eating canned tuna, but I guess at the premium brand and premium cost I can get over that, especially since the meal was my idea.[/QUOTE]

I too am not a fan of canned tuna. Not even at premium cost. When I have a hankering for a tuna salad sandwich, I will buy a small piece of fresh tuna (about 6 ounces) and pour olive oil on it and let it sit for about 24 hours. Just enough oil so that I don't have to waste any by draining it off when I go to mix it. I then sauté it until it is cook thoroughly. Six ounces is just enough for about two sandwiches.

Grant you, fresh tuna can be costly, but so much better than canned and well worth the expense.

medtran, that is a yummy looking dinner salad. I'm glad our weather is warming up enough to have them in rotation. Soon.

Joey, I bet you had a great time in NOLA. Too bad your computer's vacation was longer than yours. BTW, after seeing your gumbo posts I finally got brave enough to make a batch. That there is some goooood stuff!

We had spinach salads (black olives, HC egg, raw mushrooms, tomato) and Naan pizzas. We each had mushrooms, black olives, prosciutto. Himself also had pepperoni and onion, while mine had spinach, chicken, and fresh tomato.

But sometimes there are people you live with that actually like/love tuna in oil and don't always want fresh.

Ah yes. And that is why I put the olive oil on the cooked piece of tuna and let it sit and soak into the tuna. But to each their own. When you grow up with a food, sometimes a new version is not always acceptable to that person. I do understand.
