For those of you who follow my blog, I have finally made it back from my vacation and I’m trying desperately to get back into the swing of things! The cruise was incredible, and yes I indulged a little and as a result I gained 6.2 pounds over the last two weeks, but am I upset? Absolutely not.
I made a decision going into my vacation that I would try to make good choices, but I was also going to enjoy myself, and not worry too much about gaining a few pounds so here I am, back at 196.1 pounds. Could I have done better? Yes, I’m sure I could have. Would I have been happier if I had not gained any weight on the cruise? Probably. Am I happy with the choices I made, despite the fact that I gained? Yes, I have no regrets and I feel refreshed, and ready to get back on track.
I’m still way behind reading all of the blogs that I missed, so I hope you will all be patient with me. I will get through them all eventually, and get caught up. And now for the fun part!
The recipe I’m sharing today is just something quick I threw together for lunch this week. I was looking for something just slightly different to try, and I found some interesting looking malt bread, which looked perfect for pairing with something like poached eggs, because of the round shape of the bread. If you try it out I hope you enjoy it!
Tuna (or Egg) Melt on Malt Bread
2 slices Dempster’s Malt Bread
1/2 can tuna, drained OR 1 hard boiled egg, sliced
4-6 grape tomatoes, cut up
red onion, slivered
30 grams Light Italian Blend grated cheese
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Place bread slices on cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper.
Add spinach leaves, tomato, and red onion to each slice.
Add tuna or egg, and top with grated cheese.
Place in oven for 10 minutes, remove and serve. Add salt and pepper as required.
Disclaimer: I actually used a full can of tuna because I needed to boost my protein the day I had this, but half would work out very well.
And there you have it! My first post since returning. I hope to be able to post some of my vacation photos soon, as well as my impressions of the cruise. We really did have a great time. So much so that we have all booked future cruises, but not crochet cruises, and not all together. Dianne and I have one booked for February 2020, and our friends booked one for January 2020 with their husbands. That gives us all something to look forward to for the next little while!
