Tuna Tartine

Since My Beloved lost the line that kept him stressed and too busy, a delightful new development has happened Chez Zoomie.  Sure, we have lots less money to spend but he's often home for lunch!  No longer out driving 600 miles per week to help confused customers, now his schedule is far lighter - one might even call him semi-retired, although he still works every day down in his home office and frequently out on the road as his work requires. It's just a lot less crazy.

So, now, at lunch time, I sometimes get a little fancypants and, rather than slap together a sandwich or eat a yogurt standing over the sink, I actually make lunch!

A couple of days ago, it was an open-faced tuna melt.  But doesn't it sound so much fancier to say, with a hint of a French accent, Tartine au Thon?

Whole wheat toast mounded with tuna salad made with chopped raw broccoli instead of celery (did you know that broccoli and tuna are BFFs?) and some chopped green onion, then topped with slices of mild cheddar cheese that bubble and ooze under the broiler for two minutes before serving.  He came up from his lair sniffing like a bear just out of hibernation and saying, "It smells mighty good up here!"

Nice to have a lunch buddy, isn't it? And your tuna melt looks delish.

Hungry bear becomes happy bear. Both of you are happy - sounds like a winning combo.
