My First What I Ate Wednesday

So yeah, I remember saying I’d never do one of these posts because well, I don’t cook and I don’t really have much to offer you guys.

However, yesterday, a friend of mine asked me what I was doing for lunch. I know she expected me to name off a take-out/drive-thru place (as that is usually what I do for 2/3 meals), but I surprised her by saying that I was making tuna. Then she surprised me by asking, “How do you make your tuna?”

Wait, there’s different ways to make tuna??

When I rattled of the ingredients, she was genuinely interested and said that it sounded like something she’d like.

Well I’ll be…..I, Helly, shared a recipe????

So I decided to go out on a limb here and share it with you all too just in case anyone else would like a different spin on tuna. Or maybe you already make it the way I do. Which in that case, is the reason why we’re friends.

Okay, so here’s what you need. And bear with me because I have no idea how these WIAW posts are supposed to go.

2 cans of tuna (or however much you want–I typically use two, serves about 4)
3 hard boiled eggs (you can use just the whites if that’s your thing)
Pickles (preferably sliced b/c you’ll chop ’em)
JalapeƱos (whole or pre-sliced, and from the can for easy chopping)

I’ll cook if it means there’s less than 5 ingredients šŸ˜€

Step 1: Drain your tuna; put in medium size bowl
Step 2: On a cutting board, slice/chop your eggs (Leave only egg whites if that’s your preference. I used the whole egg). Pour the egg pieces in the tuna bowl.
Step 3: Chop one pickle slice (or more depending on how much pickle flavor you want)
Step 4: Chop your jalapeƱos (I use the entire small can. I like spicy.)

Step 5: Mix pickles and jalapeƱos in to the tuna bowl and you’re done!!

Some of my family members like putting in a spoonful of mayo, but I don’t. This is actually the healthiest Helly gets, lol!! You could also put in a little mustard but again, I like it just the way it is.

Eat straight from the bowl or–

  1. Make a sandwich
  2. Roll in a tortilla for a tuna burrito
  3. Put on top of a cracker for a quick snack

Never thought I’d see the day, but there you have it! My first What I Ate Wednesday šŸ˜€ Whatdya think??

–Do you like tuna? How do you prepare it?

–Do you like jalapeƱos? I love ’em!
