I went in not feelin' it at all, but by the time I left I was in a completely different mood and so glad that I forced myself to go.
For dinner tonight, I tried to be a little creative. I decided to make Tuna Meatballs...I found a recipe on the internet, but let's be honest...I never actually have the ingredients they ask for (the only items in my household are oats and baking powder...remember!?) so I just used it as a guide line.
My Version of Tuna Meatballs
Makes 2 meatballs
1/2 can of white tuna
1/8 cup egg whites
1/8 cup of crushed crackers (I used Mary's Black Pepper)
1/8 cup crushed mixed nuts, seeds, and raisins
1 tsp. parmesan cheese
Spelt flour (to remove excess moisture)
Pepper to taste
1. Combine all of the ingredients except the flour. Add flour slowly --- I ended up using about 2 tbsp. to get the right consistency.
3. Pan fry on medium heat in olive oil and garlic until golden brown.
I made a spinach salad with red onion, red pepper, tomatos, and green olives to use as a bed for my ballllls.
For a dressing, I whipped up some balsamic vinegar, pesto, and Dijon mustard---Drizzled that all over the salad and balls.
The tuna meatballs were incredible --- Crunchy on the outside and bursting with flavour on the inside. I drizzled some sriracha over the meatballs as well...
So I have decided that I am just going to take it easy tonight...The last two nights of going out have caught up with me! The night ahead looks a little something like this: One Tree Hill Marathon, yes.
