The Golden Tuna
Yesterday, I headed to Earth Fare to pick up some stuff for dinner. Do you know Earth Fare? It’s basically a mini-Whole Foods. I think maybe it’s a Southern chain? We had one in Charleston that I used to love, back in the old college days.
I got some kale and pineapple to make this salad:
Tropical massaged kale salad with pineapple and cucumber. Delicious—I just massaged the kale with sesame oil, tamari, lime juice, and a little chili sauce, and then added the pineapple and cucumber and let it sit for about an hour. Very refreshing!
I also stopped by the fish counter and picked up a few tuna steaks…
…which must have been made of gold, because before I knew it, I’d spent half of Lila’s college fund on freakin’ tuna. The price sign was upside down when I ordered the tuna and I couldn’t really read it, so I was in for quite a shock when I saw the price sticker on my little bundle of fish. I resisted the urge to ask the man behind the counter if the tuna was crusted in diamonds. Still, I was too embarrassed to give it back. So last night, we enjoyed a very expensive tuna dinner.
It was all very “Jessica Simpson buying underwear on the first season of Newlyweds”:
Skip forward to 6:30 to see the scene I’m referring to. Or watch the entire clip and get a little misty-eyed about the way things were for those two crazy kids back when tuna was still chicken, and Maxwell Drew was just a faint 10 lb. twinkle in Jessica’s eye.
God I miss Newlyweds.
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! Off to a Pure Barre class…
