The lenten season has begun! For Shaun and I that means no meat today and on every Friday until Easter is over.
Growing up I remember eating tuna sandwiches every week. I am so sick of these sandwiches that I usually eat about one a year and then I am good until I crave it the next year. I absolutely love ahi tuna and tuna steaks, but the “other canned stuff” gets hidden in my house.
Tonight I wanted to make something different for the start of lent. I was browsing through my Weight Watchers cookbook and noticed a recipe for lobster mac and cheese. Not only was the recipe flagged right away, I went out and bought the ingredients immediately. Dinner was solved!
How can this not sound good?!? Lobster covered in cheese and noodles with a small kick from the rotel tomatoes.
OH WOWZA – it was delicious and so hard to save for leftovers.
