Tuna Alfalfa Crunch

 

In my old blog, before I had my own domain name, this was the first ever recipe that I posted. Cue in Barbra Streisand's "Meeeemoryyyy...all alone in the moooonlight...". 

I'm getting a little bit sentimental because I browsed through my old blog to get the recipe and a wave of nostalgia hit me. Back in 2009, when I first started my blog I had something to say and share but I didn't know how to do it. Five years after, last 2014, I attended a wordpress 101 workshop promoted by my good friends; ChrissyPatricia and Joei that was facilitated by the awesome twosome Marge and Jennyfer. From there, I got inspired to start blogging actively again! With Marge and Jennyfer's refferal, I heard about this AMAZING blog designer Fancy Girl Designs by Pat. With that, along came the birth of my new blog! I was actually pressured to take better photos this time because of Pat's beautiful design! I'm not an expert photographer at all, I still have a lot of things to learn but boooooyyyy were those old blog photos awful! Haha! Anyway, these ladies mentioned above are just AWESOME and I am grateful to them for their talent and support! My blog is not perfect but it is exactly the way I want it to be (for now *wink*)! 

Also, I am grateful to my sister-in-law for this easy and terrific Tuna Alfalfa Crunch recipe. Thanks Aby!!! =)

When you get a red and juicy chunk of raw tuna, this is the dish to make! You can serve this in individual portions but you may also serve it family-style.
