{Pinned there, Done that} Skinny Tuna Melt

I tried this recipe the other day for myself when hubby was going to be late from work and wasn't super hungry after a late lunch. I ate one myself and gave the hubby the second one. He then gave our 5 year old a quarter to try. Her exact words were, "Mommy! That was AMAZING! Can you make that for my snack?!" The hubby then chimed in that it was "good... really good!!" In fact, he asked if I could make it 2 days later for lunch, AND I made it for him 2 days after that when I was heading to a meeting.

This is highly recommended!

Here is the recipe in case the original goes missing.

Skinny Tuna Melt
src - Skinny Taste
  • 1 4.5 oz can tuna (in water) drained
  • 1/4 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 1 tbsp red onion, minced
  • 1 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 slices light whole wheat bread 
  • 2 slices 2% cheese (I used american)
  • 2 slices tomato
  • oil spray


Combine tuna, celery, carrots, onion, mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and pepper.

Heat a large skillet over low heat. Spray skillet with oil, and place two slices of bread on top. Top bread with cheese, then tuna salad and tomato. Cook on low heat until cheese melts and bread gets toasty. Serve immediately.

{Pinned there, Done That} Zucchini Pizza Bites

I served these Zucchini Pizza Bites that I found at The Comfort of Cooking the other day with a crockpot chicken recipe that I was trying. I LOVED them. Hubby was getting home later so I had to take 4 off the plate, to save for him, otherwise I would have eaten them all. My 3 year old is on an "I don't like pizza" kick (weird... I know), so she refused to eat them; My 5 year old wasn't a HUGE fan, but ate them when I bribed her with dessert. When the hubby finally got home and got to eat dinner, I warned him that the zucchini were probably better fresh out of the oven, but he liked them. Actually his exact words were, "wow... those zucchini things are really pretty good!". We will add these to our rotation and work on our kids to actually eat them!

Zucchini Pizza Bites
Original recipe
2 large zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch thick rounds
Nonstick cooking spray
Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper
1/4 cup marinara sauce
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
1/4 cup mini pepperoni pieces, optional
Italian seasoning, for sprinkling

Spray both sides of zucchini rounds lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil or grill the zucchini rounds for 2 minutes on each side.

Place cooked zucchini rounds on a large lined baking sheet. Top with small amounts of sauce, cheese and pepperoni pieces, if desired. Broil for an additional 1-3 minutes, or until cheese is melted, careful not to burn. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and serve warm.
