I hope you guys had a fabulous Memorial Day weekend.
We were in NYC for a wedding and had a great time, walking the city and enjoying the sunny weather. Though dang it was HOT, like sweating through my jeans while riding in a cab with no air conditioning hot. Yep, that hot.
We spent Sunday in Central Park and it was incredible, the park was packed with so many people relaxing, walking, riding bikes, riding in carriages and sharing their talents.
During our wandering we stumbled onto The Mall known as the Literary Walk which is lined with a quadruple row of towering American elms. Statues also line this walk, mostly of prominent writers and poets. The scene was beautiful, but what really made it incredible were the performers that were sharing their talents as people enjoyed their day. One performer was a female violinist who was using her i-phone and a small speaker to project her music so that you truly felt like you were in a concert hall under the elms. She was incredibly talented and almost everyone who walked by had to stop and listen, enjoying the gift she was sharing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day, later that night we got to witness the marriage of two wonderful people and all the joy and hope that a new beginning brings.
Now we are back in Cincinnati and our weekly routine. Getting back to eating a healthy balanced diet is sounding pretty good after indulging over the weekend.
One of my new go to healthy, high protein lunch recipes is this yellowfin tuna salad sandwich recipe. Even my youngest son, who is a picky eater, has been gobbling up these sandwiches. I even doubled the recipe the last time I made it, he enjoys it so much.

Was wondering how you prepared the tuna? We brought a ton of yellowfin tuna home with us from La Paz and it’s raw and frozen and are wanting to make this. Or do you use raw tuna?

What a delicious take on the tuna salad sandwich! My daughter has never had tuna salad, and I cannot think of a better time to give it a go. If nothing else, I’ll gobble up the parts of the sandwich she doesn’t like! Thanks for sharing.
