tuna obsession

Yep that's what i have. I have been craving tuna for the past couple of weeks. The hard thing about this craving is that i can only have 6oz of it a week. Something about safe mercury levels... ahhh whatever... But really its hard because that means i can only eat it once maybe twice a week. Grrr. Anyways I made (and ate) the most wonderful salad involving tuna today! We (or I guess I should say they because I'm not working there anymore) make it at work. Its called the grecca salad.



















The picture really doesn't do it justice, its so yummy!

Just in case you want to know whats all in it and try is one of these days:

Tuna
Feta
Red Onion
Tomato
Cucumber
Bell Pepper (preferably red... but i only had green)

Combine about equal parts of everything, except for the feta, a bit less of that.

*Season with EVOO, s&p, red wine vinegar and oregano. Serve over a bed of greens.



On a side note the other day my mom brought over her latest find:




Some maternity shirts from Wal*Mart. I guess the store had gotten in a shipment of clothing that was way to large for their sore and had to get rid of some clothes. Everything was only $1!!!













She only paid $4 for these shirts for me! How cool is that?! I like them a lot, and think they are super cute! The black and red one are the same style and the pink and white one are the same style. Its nice to get new clothes but most days i can't justify paying for it when i already have some. So this was a nice surprise:O)















And just for fun I took these a few weeks ago... but they make me smile! These kids dress up almost daily.

Yes I have read about the mercury levels in tuna so I would be very careful. The shirts do look very nice, and what a great bargain. The kids look so cute dressed up. Our neighbour has 2 little girls, 3 and 2 years old and they dress up every single day. They come over to visit Isabelle and last week they were Snow White and Superman. I thought perhaps the littlest one would be Supergirl but she said no I am Superman. How cute.
