Thanks for all who entered the drawing for Weber’s “Smoke: A Guide to Smoke Cooking for Everyone and Any Grill.” You are an intrepid lot. The winner is Penny Guelcher. I’ll pop it in the mail today.
If you are not Penny Guelcher, you are eligible to put your name in the hat for one of 2 copies I have of "Eating Light, Done Right," by Tania N. Boughton. The book has lots of simple, healthy-looking recipes, tons of inspirational advice for healthy eaters and beautiful photographs.
What it doesn’t have, strangely, is nutritional information for the recipes. Her concept might be that you shouldn’t count calories, but should just eat healthy food, but I don’t know. She doesn’t address the issue in her forward that I could find.
Either way, though, is that it’s definitely a great place to start or reinspire you to get back on the right track.
If you want to enter the drawing, please send an e-mail to email@example.com. Include your NAME, MAILING ADDRESS and NAME OF THE BOOK. I’ll draw out of my electronic “hat” next Wednesday.
In the meantime, try this:
SIMPLY SINLESS & TOTALLY TERRIFIC TUNA CASSEROLE
1 1/2 tablespoons I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light
1 cup onion, diced
1 cup 1 percent milk
1 can reduced sodium, fat cream of mushroom soup
3 cups hot cooked egg noodles
1 1/2 cups frozen green peas
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cans Albacore tuna in water, drained
2 ounces diced pimiento (1 jar, drained)
1/3 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
4 tablespoons reduced-fat grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and saute about 3 minutes, then add mushroom soup and 1 percent milk. Cook for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly with a whisk so it doesn’t scorch.
2. Mix soup and onion mixture with noodles, peas, lemon juice, salt, pepper, tuna and pimiento and pour into a 2-quart casserole.
3. Mix together breadcrumbs and Parmesan and sprinkle over the top of the casserole. Bake until heated through and bubbling. Serve hot and enjoy.
