Siete ‘Til Cinco

As a young girl, whenever we visited Old Town’s Bazaar Del Mundo, I remember stepping foot into a little bakery and walking out with a warm churro, bathed in cinnamon sugar and wrapped in white paper.

I remember that and the toy store, Gepetto’s.

As I got older, my memories switched to margaritas and pozole with fresh flour tortillas from Old Town Mexican Café.

Cinco de Mayo is just a week away.

This year I’m going to make these….

{Baked Churros}

A little healthier than the deep fried ones ~ and who doesn’t love a crescent roll?

And I wanted to go into the archives and bring out all the tried and true Mexican food posts…

Tricked Out Tuna

If you love tuna as much as I do, then you may be looking for some new ways to take it up a notch.

My good friend, Nancy, makes hers with lemon and dill…seriously delish!

I like to do a sweet and spicy version with crushed pineapple, red peppers and wasabi mayo. If you like wasabi and you haven’t discovered TJ’s Wasabi Mayo yet, go check it out.

And finally, the hubby has his own twist on tuna!

Lemon Dill Tuna Salad

1 can albacore tuna in water, drained and flaked

mini dill pickles, finely chopped

mayo (amount to your preference)

Squeeze of lemon

A couple shakes of dill weed (or fresh)

Mix together and serve on sourdough or by itself on a bed of lettuce.

Pineapple Wasabi Tuna Salad

1 can albacore tuna in water, drained and flaked

red pepper, finely chopped

crushed pineapple plus a tad bit of the juice

Wasabi mayo (amount to your preference)

This is great on multigrain bread (I like Milton’s)

Protein Packed Tuna Salad

(Jay’s recipe)

1 can albacore tuna in water, drained and flaked

1 hard-boiled egg, chopped

Red onion, minced

Sweet pickle relish

Celery salt

Fresh groud pepper

Mayo (of course!)

All three are great with a thin slice of Swiss cheese, too.

Today I had the Lemon Dill on a nice big bed of Spring mix & veggies.

Couldn’t post this without mentioning Jessica Simpson…(“is this chicken?”)

Coming up this weekend…Slow cooked French Dip Sliders & “Everything But…” Chopped Salad
