These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!
This evening, hubby and I made our Costco run after work rather than wait until the weekend. Hubby has a training class all day tomorrow and I have a day full of projects planned too...so we decided to get it out of the way tonight. We also ran a couple of other errands as well and didn't get home until just after 9:00 tonight. Neither of us had eaten dinner or were unusually hungry. One of the items I picked up at Costco to try was their canned wild tuna. I don't eat tuna very often any more because of all the concern about mercury...but this brand claims to have low amounts and they refer to it as "100% pole and troll caught wild albacore tuna." I'm not really sure what polled and trolled means...LOL. For whatever reason, the image I conjure up is that of a little "ugly troll looking tuna" lurking under a bridge somewhere, hiding from a fishing poll. I know that sounds weird...but it's what first comes to my mind. Anyway...Costco also had some big containers of beautiful green hydroponic Bibb lettuce that I picked up too. On the ride home, I decided I would make some quick Tuna Salad Lettuce Wraps with it. The tuna is actually solid tuna steaks packed in a can that I flaked with a fork and broke up into small pieces. I added a couple tablespoons of mayonnaise, some finely diced celery, a tiny bit of minced onion, a little finely diced dill pickle and a squeeze of mustard and mixed it all together and placed it in the lettuce leaves and sprinkled with a little paprika. I served them with some roasted almonds and it was a delicious dinner that took less than 10 minutes to make. I snapped a quick photo for you to see below. Enjoy!
