Treat Week needs to end right now. I was tempted yet again today with a couple of cakes and sugar cookies. These were not just any sugar cookies, oh no, but the soft ones with yummy sugary icing and sprinkles on top.J These cookies are what dreams are made of.
With my morning tea I some how ended up with a half of a cookie and a bite of a lemon glazed cake on my plate. I need to start making my tea in the kitchen on the other side of the building so I don’t even catch a glimpse of what is in the kitchen. I need to remember this when we have the same type of Treat Week before Thanksgiving and Christmas. J Luckily tomorrow is the last day of Halloween Treat Week and I have signed up to bring in something yummy to share. You will have to stay tuned to see what I bake tonight. 😉
Lunch was a wonderful, quickly thrown together creation.
The Star of my plate was the Open Face Tuna Melt Pita
I mixed up a small can of Tuna with Tomatoes, Spicy Brown Mustard, Honey Mustard and a tiny bit of Fat Free Mayo. I dumped the Tuna mixture on top of a Pita I toasted under the broiler. I then covered the Tuna with a slice of Fat Free Swiss Cheese and put it under the broiler for a couple of more minutes. The FF cheese doesn’t really melt very pretty, but its still cheesy goodness.
On the side I made a shredded salad of Zucchini and Yellow Squash and had a couple of Cucumber slices and some grapes.
It’s funny because I never really liked canned tuna as a kid. In the past year I’m learning that with tuna, as well as other several foods I disliked, it wasn’t so much the item I disliked, but the way it was served to me. My parents used to just mix a can of tuna with a ton of mayo and make a sandwich on some generic bread I never cared for. Not my idea of a good meal. Canned tuna is much better mixed with some mustards and veggies and then heated it up with cheese. The melt I made today is my idea of canned tuna perfection.
Can you believe it’s almost Friday? This week sure has flown by!! Thursday Oct. 30 is marked as ‘Baking Day’ on my calendar. I am going to be baking up a storm tonight. I can’t wait!
