Hi Y'all.

I turned 39 yesterday. And I've decided I have a bit of work to do on the road to 40. So for this moment.. I will be daring to document my space and my time as I journey to build better habits, learn to love myself unconditionally, and become the woman I was always meant to be. Strong in body, confident in self, and of good character . That really sounds all super serious and inspirational right?  Good... just the pep talk I needed to give myself!                   Ready, Set, Go!!!                         xxBH

This Delicious Tuna Salad is giving me life.

This Delicious Tuna Salad is giving me life.

Can I just say this "TV fast" is not going well. Earlier this week, H. got in bed and turned on The Hills. Really, The Hills. Not his beloved NBA basketball or Formula One Race, which I could give two hoots about. That would have been too easy.. He said that he assumed I wouldn't want to watch (the 10 year anniversary special!! are you kidding me???). It was like lighting a cigarette in front of someone who was a week in to quitting smoking. Memories of vegging out in my pjs after putting the kids to bed flashed before me as I tried to zoom in on my laptop. Memories of wishing L.C. would drop-kick Heidi outside at Les Deux.. and then shaking my fists in the air as Lauren watched her plane to Paris leave without her danced in my head...while I tried to turn the volume up in my ear pods. Thats okay, she persevered and so will I. I'm still #TeamLauren

We are two weeks into summer break and it seems as if the kiddos are enjoying a delicious ice cream cone daily.. And I'm trying my hardest to keep a gym routine and not eat chicken fingers and pizza (or a delicious pb & j) for lunch with them every day. So I've been making this easy Tuna Salad and slathering it in a whole wheat tortilla wrap with some spinach or enjoying open faced on whole wheat bread. It is SO GOOD. Easy and quick to throw together before heading out.  I tend to boil a few eggs at a time early in the week, eat a couple for breakfast and have a few left to throw into green salads and this tuna salad during the week.  Its officially my go-to tuna recipe now that i've documented and slipped it into my old Franklin Covey planner turned recipe book.  Please don't act like you didn't get a Franklin Covey Planner for college graduation that you've  kept for 15+ years :-) Well any way, Its my prized possession now. Filled with my collection of Southern recipes to be passed down for generations to come. My Grandma Bessie's Super Sweet Potato Pie, my moms Top Secret Potato Salad Recipe and now:

BUNNIES'S FAVORITE TUNA SALAD

INGREDIENTS 

  • 12 ounces good-quality tuna, packed in oil, drained 
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 red apple, such as Honey Crisp or Fugi, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4-inch pieces 
  • 3 tablespoons (light) mayonnaise, preferably Hampton Creeks's Just Mayo or Dukes.
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped or dried dill 
  • Half of a freshly squeezed lemon
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper 
  • whole wheat tortilla 

DIRECTIONS 

In a medium bowl, combine tuna, onion, apple, mayonnaise, dill, and lemon juice; mix well. Season with salt and pepper. 

Spread on desired bread or roll and top with greens of choice (preferably, baby spinach, or baby kale).

**So the apples and lemon juice are key for giving it a little sweetness and the perfect amount of tang.**

Enjoy!
