random dinner post  
I made a thing! It's based on a recipe I saw on a PBS cooking show - tuna and zucchini salad - but instead of boiling the zucchini, I sautéed them - two chopped up into quarter moons - with garlic (one smashed clove early on, then one minced one when I added the tuna), then added a can of tuna (in olive oil, drained), some chopped sundried tomatoes, a splash of lemon juice*, and lots of chopped parsley.

(*I am one of those plebeians who uses bottled lemon juice. Occasionally I'll freeze leftover fresh lemon juice in tablespoon-sized amounts, if I think a recipe really calls for fresh lemon juice or lemon zest and I have some leftover after going through the trouble of remembering to buy a lemon, but as I don't like very much lemon juice in things, it seems rather wasteful to try to keep lemons on hand.)

Tomorrow I think I'll make some whole-wheat couscous to serve with the leftovers; tonight I just ate it as is, with some Greek yogurt and honey for dessert.
