Hello! Last week I had to change my menu around a bit because I forgot about including the special Valentine’s dinner I like to make for my family. One of my favorite wedding presents 13 years ago was a heart shaped waffle maker. I just love it and nothing says I love you like heart shaped waffles on Valentine’s Day served with strawberries and whip cream :) Yummy!
So cute! I also made gluten free ones for my son along with a heart shaped gluten free, dairy free, egg free chocolate cake for dessert. My son who is the pickiest eater EVER gobbled it all up! I will post the recipe for both over the next couple of days as I know I have quite a few readers who are also gluten free.
Another recipe highlight from last week would have to be the Chicken in Pesto Sauce. A delicious garlicky cream sauce that is low in fat AND easy to make. It just doesn’t get any better than that! I got the recipe from a site called Eat Just One More and it looks like they have quite a selection of healthier recipes.
This week we are eating:
Tuesday: Herbed Tuna Sandwiches (recipe below) with Tomato Soup
Wednesday: Pesto Salmon with caesar salad (can you tell I love garlic!)
Friday: Italian Chicken served with perogies
Saturday: Homemade Pizza
Herbed Tuna Sandwiches
2 cans (6 oz each) light water-packed tuna, drained and flaked
2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
1/3 fat-free mayonaise
1/4 cup minced fresh chives
2 tsp minced fresh parsley
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp onion powder
8 slices whole wheat bread, toasted
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Place four slices of toast on an ungreased baking sheet; top with the tuna mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Broil 3-4 inches from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with remaining toast.
