Ahh Monday, you have come back again.
Not sure if I am bummed about this or super happy. I am leaning towards super happy because with this Monday comes the potential for sunshine, and after the weekend we had here it will very much be welcomed. It’s still early, but I am hoping for no more snow.
And that’s all I will say about the weather. Just please… no more snow.
You know what I still find really weird?
That people are actually making the recipes I create. I mean, I know that is the point of this whole site and what I do, but still, every time I read a comment, get to see an instagram photo (my favorite!! I love seeing your photos) or read an email about one of you guys making a recipe and loving it, it is the most awesome thing. Makes me smile every time. To me, it’s a little surreal.
Even when family members text me about recipes I get exited.
Last night my cousin was looking for a gluten-free recipe to make for her roommate. Every time Abby texts or calls looking for recipes I get so pumped that she is going to make something. She is always sending me photos of dishes she had made.
It’s super fun and since we are far apart, it’s an awesome way to stay connected.
I always fear that people are going to hate whatever they try. I mean, everyone’s got different tastes, so it scares the living daylights out of me.
I know, I gotta get over it, can’t please everyone…but I’ll always try. It’s a habit I don’t think I will ever be able to break. Unless you start to get on my nerves. Then I would be fearful if I were you. Just kidding!
This salad. It is sort of raw fish, but sort of not. It’s about as raw as fish is going to get around here. Maybe I am still developing the taste buds (and braveness) to like raw seafood, but as of right now I am gonna be saying, no.
So I seared my tuna and called it poke mostly because I liked the way it sounded. That’s how I roll.
Honestly though, this salad is so good and super quick to make too. The flavors are heavy on the tropics which seems to be all I am craving lately.
The tuna cooks in like two minutes and it is super important to not go any longer than that. If you cook the tuna through it’s just going to be dry and flavorless. Leave it extra pink and pretty.
Oh and this salad? It’s so not one of those boring Monday salads. NOOO. I would not do that to you guys. Nope. this salad will brighten your day – even if your Monday doesn’t include sunshine (or happens to be snowy!).
I mean, there is pink involved. And not the died kind. Ya!
