Pasta With Tuna And Bok Choy Recipe

It's ridiculous how quick, easy, cheap, and delicious this recipe is. And by using bok choy, people will think you've cooked something fancy!

I used this flavored tuna, but regular tuna would work just fine. You can always squeeze a little lemon juice into it if you want.

I had a coupon!

Start some spaghetti boiling, then fry bok choy, bell pepper, and garlic. I only had 1/2 of a bok choy to use. An entire bok choy would have been much, much better!

Add tuna.

You see why I wish I'd had more bok choy? Wimpy!


Now, doesn't this look so much better than boring old spaghetti with marinara sauce?


Pasta with Tuna and Bok Choy:
  • 1 can or pouch of tuna
  • 8oz spaghetti
  • 1 bok choy
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 C diced bell pepper
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp Pepper
  • Sprinkle of onion Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • Parmesan cheese
  1. Boil spaghetti
  2. While spaghetti is boiling, heat olive oil in a frying pan
  3. Add bok choy, garlic, and bell pepper to oil
  4. When the ingredients from step 3 are cooked (approx 5 minutes), add tuna
  5. Drain spaghetti once preferred doneness is achieved (if you like al dente, more power to you!)
  6. Add butter, pepper, italian seasoning, and onion salt to spaghetti
  7. Add tuna mixture to spaghetti and, if desired, sprinkle with lemon juice
  8. Serve! Top each bowl with Parmesan cheese

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!). I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel (this one specifically, which I still haven't tried but has great reviews) but my computer led me a different direction.

I decided to do this on a whim, after LivingSocial greeted me one morning with a great $40 chemical peel deal.
Now, I can read your mind. You just gasped in horror and thought You trusted your face to a discount chemical peel?! You're wondering where my mother was and why she didn't stop me. But not to worry. Really!
Here is my Jessner peel before and after:

Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?

Ultra-modern??

The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
...this eye-catching wall of mirrors...
...stone accents like these...
....a copper apron sink...
...a floor-to-ceiling windo…
