At the grocery store on Sunday, Ryan wanted to buy tuna steaks for us to eat this week. We actually had the guy behind the seafood counter package them up before realizing that the tuna steaks were $9.99 each, not $9.99 a pound.
Um, no thanks. We politely explained to him our misunderstanding (he smiled and thankfully didn’t seem annoyed), and didn’t buy the tuna steaks.
If I’m paying $10 for a tuna steak, I want it cooked for me.
And tonight, that’s exactly what I had.
Seared tuna salad!
This evening Ryan and I decided to go on a mid-week date for some seafood. Since I made a commitment to enjoy one full week of healthy foods, I tried my best to make smart, healthy decisions at dinner… like limiting myself to two slices of bread with butter instead of filling up on half of the loaf of warm bread before my entrée was even delivered.
Whenever I go out to eat, I often go into dinner with an “all bets are off” attitude and typically leave a restaurant feeling overly stuffed. Tonight I was determined to leave feeling simply satisfied.
I savored the doughy bread and the whipped butter (which I think had garlic and chives in it – so good!) and still had plenty of room in my stomach when my seared tuna salad came out.
My salad was really good! I think Ryan was a little jealous, though his scallops, shrimp and grits dish was good as well. (Of course it didn’t hold a candle to the shrimp and grits he ordered on Jekyll Island two weeks ago.)
Our mid week date was such a special treat! We had a great time talking about a lot of random things going on in our lives right now and it felt good to enjoy a special date on a Tuesday night.
Hoping to get to sleep a little early this evening!
