Food of course....

It always seems that when I don't blog for a moment I'm always inspired to blog by good food. I've been craving Ahi Tuna for awhile and we haven't bought it because its always so freaking expensive.  I finally broke down and bought some yesterday for today's dinner and OH MY GOODNESS.  I need to really become a chef because I amaze even myself sometimes.

I love my fish sometimes with a little bit of sweetness to it and tried something a little different.  I'm not going to tell what I used in the event that I break down and write a cook book.  Lol   I will say that it was probably the best Tuna I've ever made.  It was perfect.

We've been doing a pretty good job cutting down on our carbohydrates.  We were overdosing on them daily multiple times a day so I have to say that I'm pretty proud of myself.  There are days where I want to just indulge in a whole loaf of bread all by myself, OD on potatoes, rice AND pasta....in the same meal.  Lol  Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating just a little bit.  JUST A LITTLE.

So our dinner this evening was Ahi Tuna, Steamed broccoli, with Strawberries, Pineapple, and Nectarines.  It was actually pretty filling not to mention delicious.  I could probably eat fruit all summer long.  Often times when the weather is warm I have to eat really light because my stomach will begin to feel a little queasy.  I could probably do a soup, salad and fruit diet all summer and be cool.  I had the best cherries and cantaloupe the other day.  Aly posted a recipe for drunken melon balls on her face book page and I'm so trying these, minus the liquor of course. 

Anyway pictures of dinner......

So there you have it.  Tonight's dinner.  It was so good that the little one, with his 5 year old picky self actually ate it and liked it.  He even said he'd eat some tomorrow for dinner.  We may have a new food that we can add to the few foods we can actually get him to eat.  HOORAY!!!!  Victory for Mommy.  Lol

Alright...that's it for me people.  Peace and Blessings until next time.......

@ Aly. Hmm....that sounds good. I'm might have to try the wraps I think those would be bomb with some sort of sweet dipping sauce. Yum. If you do it before me take pics and post them.

Yeah, had I known about the melon balls back in my drinking days I'm sure I would have walked around daily slightly tipsy. Lol

Looks delish! So fresh and summery. I've finally acquired a taste for Ahi Tuna, as long as it's not rare. I'm still not a fan of that. I've only ordered it out since hubby doesn't like it or the smell of it. =( Boo!

@ Mrstdj, yeah nothing rare is appetizing to me. UGH! It's so delicious, I love it!!! It was a great summer meal.

@Lady, You're more than welcome anytime. :) Are you still doing your raw foods?

Hey DrRegina, thanks for stopping by. Hope you drop by often. I wish you could eat seafood to because it was DELICIOUS. Lol. The only seafood I really eat is tuna, salmon and shrimp occasionally. I LOVE it.
