Mini Muffins!

I am turning into my nonna.

Today I had one of her favorite lunches- pasta with canned tuna. I had about 2.5 oz of angel hair with a can of tuna in olive oil, drained. The oil from the tuna works as a great sauce over the pasta.

[Reminder: I am blogging my meals this week- every last bite- to show you how I eat and why I eat it. This is the extended reply to several Ask Me Anything questions I received.]

The water was put on to boil because I was just so hungry. I know the photo is hideous.


In the afternoon I took a 10 minute break to bake some muffins. This time I used 1 pear and really chopped it small, and I made the muffins in a mini muffin tin. I baked them to bring with us to Colorado tomorrow! PB and I are going with another couple to Beaver Creek (near Vail). We would love dining suggestions and more!!!

I think PB is ready to show off his newly acquired snowboarding moves (he is linking turns! and well!)


Back to the muffins. Of course I had to taste test two of them. They were just the way I remembered them… a bit dry, not very sweet, but perfectly satisfying. You don’t have to feel guilty eating these. Find the original recipe here.



Later in the afternoon I had some Oikos vanilla yogurt with fresh raspberries, a couple of tablespoons of Kashi Go Lean Crunch, and 1.25 Weetabix biscuits. I almost skipped my snack this afternoon, but I got super hungry around 3. This was great… although I did miss the chocolate chips! I am one of those people who is sad when a delicious meal or snack is gone. Are you that way?


I have a really fun giveaway coming soon. Hint: it involves creative shoes… Get excited!!!!

  1. I saw your tweet about it looking like cat food and I assure you that it doesn’t. It looks like spaghetti w/tuna. Don’t worry!

  2. what kind of camera do you have? the pics look great (even if they do look like cat food).

  3. I think the tuna and pasta looks fine. Its a great combo; I love to add olives to that. A lot of the food I eat does not look very appetizing but is healthy and tastes delicious! I think foodie bloggers understand!

  4. I don’t know about this. I had tuna with pasta once and I can never have it again. I don’t know if the tuna was bad or what…but the muffins look awesome!

  5. i love tuna pasta salad.. i prefer to use elbow pasta instead of spaghetti though… and i love to add in some greek yogurt and celery too 🙂

  6. Whenever I see the snowboarders in the olympics I think of you!

  7. Have fun in Colorado – I havent been skiing all season and am dying to hit the slopes!

  8. My family and I went to Beaver Creek between Christmas and New Year’s. Try to go to Beano’s Cabin — it is on top of the mountain, three-course includes sleigh ride — for a special treat.

  9. I second Beano’s Cabin–it’s great! Kind of expensive but a really fun experience.

    If you are looking for something low-key, try Pazzo’s in Avon. It is always crowded, but it’s a good locals spot with the bessssst pizza. I can’t promise any healthy options though 🙂
