Spicy Tuna Avocado Salad & Life Update

Life has been busy, but we have been having lots of fun.

The weather has been quite nice, and we are spending lots of time at the park with the kid. I love how he gets so involved in his projects…

Soccer has also started up again, and the kid is excited. 

We also had some friends over the other day and did an early Easter Egg hunt with the kids. 

We had lots of good food, but the highlight of the evening was the Chocolate Fountain. I always wanted to have either a chocolate fountain or a chocolate fondue and finally bought a chocolate fountain. It was a lot of fun even though setting up the chocolate fountain will be a once-in-a-while thing as it takes a lot of chocolate. Still, I’m looking forward to using it at all kinds of special occasions.

I still plan our meals even though the meal plan doesn’t always make it on the blog.
While our dinners are varied and interesting, I have been in a lunch rut lately. I used to mix tuna, chicken, or salmon with avocado to make a salad and was recently reminded of it again. So I made some spicy tuna avocado salad, and it was a nice change.

Spicy Tuna Avocado Salad

  • 1 can tuna
  • 1/2 small avocado
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Tabasco to taste
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Cut the avocado into pieces and smash it with a fork.
  • Add lemon juice, Tabasco, salt, and pepper and mix well.
  • Add the tuna and mix well.

I ate the tuna salad on a bed of greens with roasted Brussels sprouts. It was a quick, easy, and delicious lunch.

Questions: Do you like avocados? If so, what’s your favorite way to eat them? What do you typically eat for lunch? Do you have/want to have a chocolate fondue or a chocolate fountain?

Be well,
