Day 474

Day 474 - Tuna, soft pretzels, clementine, chocolate covered Craisins, raisins and pistachios.   For D's tuna I just add a small amount of mayonnaise and a hefty spoon full of dill pickle relish.

My lunch is similar except instead of tuna I have Italian Sub cheese ball.  I am obsessed with Italian cold cuts and pepperonici lately.  I didn't have enough cold cuts to make a calzone so in my food processor I pulsed a couple slices of ham, salami, pepperoni and provolone until it was finely chopped.  I moved that to a mixing bowl.  Then I put in about 5 pepperonicini with stems removed and finely chopped those.  I mixed all of that in with just enough cream cheese to hold it all together.  It still wasn't spicy enough for me so I added a heaping spoonful of crushed red pepper (sub sandwich style not dried).  I used a knife to spread it on my pretzel....AMAZING!! I think I would make this for a party...You could form it into a ball and roll it in crushed garlic croutons or maybe parmesan ones!
