Curry Tuna Salad

March 14, 2014

Seeeeee?? I TOLD you I was going to start posting more often!! Winking smile 

Today was a Thursday, which means…it was a fun day for us!  Thursday is a special day in that neither I nor Ryan teach…which means we get to spend a lot of time with this little cutie:

We spent some time this morning discovering how to take selfies with Mama’s phone.

After phone time was over, we headed to the library for story-time.  Today was special because a group of dancers from Huntsville’s Youth Ballet came to the library to dance parts of the Snow White ballet they’ll be putting on in a few weeks.  I had a feeling that Lila would LOVE the dancers—she’s obsessed with all things tutu these days—and I was right.  She watched the girl dancers, completely enraptured.  After each little dancing segment was done, she would applaud and look eagerly for the next dancer.

What I didn’t predict?  Her total terror when the male dancer came out.  I felt bad laughing, but it was actually pretty comical—as soon as the Prince came out to do his dance, Lila BURST into tears and turned away, clinging to my back like a frantic monkey.  I like to think of it as her way of rebelling against Disney’s patriarchal rape culture, amiright?

But seriously, as soon as the poor prince danced his way out of the room, Lila was fine—all smiles again.  Something about that prince, man.  You can see that she’s still upset in this pic we snapped of her with one of the dancers:

I want to sit in your lap, because I greatly admire your tutu.  However, equally great is my distrust of your association with the prince.  #toddlerproblems

Again, I hate to laugh because Lila was pretty upset.  But it was pretty funny.

The rest of our day was pretty low-key—gym. Meeting. A visit to the mall.  You know how it goes.

When we got home from running errands this afternoon, it was already past six o’clock.  We needed dinner—fast.  30 minute meals? Suck it, Rachael Ray.  Try ten.

I mixed three cans of tuna, some low-fat mayo, some raisins, and chopped apple with curry powder and garlic salt.  Voila—curried tuna salad!

Served on a pita with a side of asparagus, this made a quick, tasty meal:


Man…I am SO ready to take my dinner pictures in better natural lighting, ha.  Soon enough.

Almost to the weekend—and we’re definitely ready over here! G’night.

    I loved ballerinas when I was small girl. I’m also love watching Center Stage once a year.

    I love when you post these simple recipes, because I’ve become a lazy cook. 🙂

      Ha, yes– this morning at breakfast, I showed Lila Jodi Sawyer’s recital dance. I think she was really impressed when the scene transitioned from recital room to motorcycle to bedroom. Yowza!

      I need to teach her how to say “Those pirouettes were amazing.”
