So I asked my neighbor to go shopping this weekend, thinking it would be a fun way to spend a Sunday morning / afternoon. After all it’s the holidays and I like going to the Market this time of year. Well it was a great morning, I got to sleep until 11:30 or so when T knocked on my door, I had to work late Saturday night or I would have been up earlier. We were off to the Market by 12:00 or so, we hit the Piroshky place first, after all you can’t go to the Market on an empty stomach. After waiting in line for a few minutes while our stomachs growled at the tasty piroshkies in front of us, we got our order in and decided to get a cup of coffee at the original Starbucks. Well that’s were the day went a little sideways, it was great up until the point of seeing my X with her guy. It was awkward for me, and I was glad to see that I can see her in public and fight the urge to throw things at her, but it didn’t save the poor Piroshky bag from my fury. Needless to say I don’t have any drive to see her again and in fact I would prefer not to see her ever again.
On the plus side I had a great time with my neighbor and I even got some Christmas shopping done, took some photos (which I hadn’t done in a long while) and helped create a fantastic salad.
Ahi Tuna Spinach Salad
1/2 lb. Ahi Tuna
1/2 cup pine nuts
1 bag baby spinach
1/2 head of fresh cauliflower
1/4 cup goddess dressing (trader joes)
Sear the tuna on both sides after doing a salt and pepper rub, go heavy with the pepper, toast the pine nuts over medium low heat, toss the spinach with the cauliflower and dressing, slice the tuna thin and arrange on the top, garnish the whole thing with the pine nuts and serve. This will feed two grown adults who love a good slice of ahi tuna! If you want a carb with this I suggest a rustic wheat bread or something similar.
