what's for lunch??

As a mom, taking care of yourself is as important as taking care of your kiddos. One small thing I like to do for ME is make myself a REALLY yummy lunch! It's small, but it perks up my day a bit. It is SOOO good! And something you can double and prepare in advance. It's just a simple Tuna Melt, but oh so yummy (and not bad for you either)!

  • 4 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 6oz cans chunk light tuna
  • 2tbs reduced fat mayo (I like miracle whip)
  • 1tbs lemon juice
  • 1tbs minced flat leaf parsley
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • ground pepper
  • dash of hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced

Preheat broiler. Toast bread in toaster. Combine tuna, mayo, lemon juice, parsley, salt, hot sauce, & pepper. Spread 1/4 cup tuna mix on each slice of toast. Top with tomatoes and 2tbs cheese. Broil til cheese is bubbly. Serve immediately.

Like I said, I double this recipe and only have it on 1 slice of toast with fruit and yogurt and sometimes carrots for lunch and it satisfies me completely! Plus I love having it ready when lunch time gets here. I usually don't eat what I fix for the boys. Also, it only takes a couple of minutes for the cheese to melt in the oven with the broiler on. So delicious!! I don't mind having the same thing everyday for a week if it's something I love and I make big batches of this often. I found this recipe on Discovery Health.

p.s my kids like tuna, so they love this too :) Stay tuned, I will be trying a homemade miracle whip recipe soon since I'm almost out.... I'll letcha know how it goes!
