Have I told you guys that Meeker is on this low-carb thing? He has been for months, and it’s going really well – he said he feels better than he ever has and he’s lost like 20 pounds. But to be fair, weight falls off of his frame if he so much glances at a stick of celery. (Remember vegetarian month??)
Another reason his low-carb lifestyle is going so well is that he get’s to eat steak and cheese to his heart’s content.
Oh, and tuna. With cheese melted on top. Inside of a little lettuce boat.
I know, I know. Don’t worry about the broiling the lettuce thing. It seems kind of weird and wilty, but Meeker said it worked. And since he ate every single one of those little tuna fishy boats, I believe him.
Tuna Melt Boats
- 10 oz canned white albacore tuna
- 2 T mayonnaise
- 1 T spicy mustard
- 2 sticks celery, chopped finely
- 1 small pickle, chopped finely
- 1 T pickle juice
- salt and pepper
- 5 romaine lettuce leaves
- 1/2 C cheddar cheese
Combine everything but the romaine lettuce and cheddar cheese. Then divide the tuna equally between the five lettuce leaves and broil for a couple of minutes until the cheese is melted.
