what's for dinner?
Some of my Opera friends are watching "Pretty Woman" and have Tacos
As for me,
I promised to be good tonight and to have a nice Greek salad with grilled Tuna fish.
I have to admit,
I think of food now days
and I gain weight!
I do exercise for an hour a day,
I eat in moderation, why I gain weight?
My doc said
"You are very healthy and you shouldn't pay any attention to the numbers"
Only a woman will understand me
I hate hormones that play games with women !
I miss my teen years when eating a "souvlaki" (Greek meal) after a pizza was just a snack...
As for the "taco" eaters, enjoy!
No envy here,
just a secret wish to be able to have a taco too!
20 ounces fresh tuna steaks, 1 inch thick
3 tablespoons white wine
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic, minced
6 cups packed torn salad greens
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
Preheat grill for medium heat.
Place tuna in a glass dish. Prepare the vinaigrette by whisking together the wine, olive oil, red wine vinegar, rosemary, pepper, salt and garlic. Pour 2 tablespoons over fish and turn to coat. Marinate 15 to 30 minutes, turning once. Reserve remaining vinaigrette for salad dressing.
Coat grill rack with cooking spray and place on grill to heat 1 minute. Place tuna on grill 4 to 6 inches over hot coals. Cover with lid or tent with foil. Cook, turning once, just until tuna begins to flake easily when tested with a fork, about 7 minutes. Discard marinade.
Arrange salad greens on 4 plates. Place hot tuna on greens and add cherry tomatoes. Stir remaining vinaigrette and drizzle over salads.
Please leave a message. It will make me feel sooooooooo loved ! Thanks!
