Zesty Tuna Pocket – Quick Blogger Lunch

Instead of writing one of the seventy billion reviews I have in draft right now I thought I’d share a yummy recipe with you! How’s that for procrastination? Since I started blogging I’ve found my lunch eating habits getting worse and worse. I mean 2 pretzel rods and a caramel pudding cup are in no way the healthy lunch I envision eating every day. (no matter how yummy!) My kids are at school and I have precious little time to blog and surf the web while they’re there. I hate wasting that time by actually making lunch. This is a quick sandwich that I vary from day to day. I’m only using the name brands here because that’s exactly how I ate it today and it was oh so good!

tuna pita

Next time I’m going to add fresh rosemary and maybe a slice of cheese just to see how that tastes. Really, it’s so simply but so delicious and I think actually a little bit good for you too! Yesterday I ate it without the mayo and it wasn’t too bad. The bonus is that it gets you back to blogging quickly!

Anyone else have any quick lunch ideas/recipes they’d like to share? I’m always looking for new ones to try! Now I’m ready to tackle some of those drafts!
