My husband and I had no plans for this weekend but to stay at home
and have a DVD marathon. Both of us wanted to watch some ‘90s
movies and enjoy a nice dinner at home. However, instead of ordering
the usual fast food meals, I decided to take over the kitchen and
prepare some healthy food for my hubby. We had been eating a lot of
pork and beef dishes in the past few days so I think it’s time for
us to eat some healthy food.
I decided to innovate and give some twist on the usual fast food
dishes my husband loved. I have planned to prepare two meals, a
chicken, and a tuna meal for him.
Since my husband is a big fan of burgers, I decided to make one for
him. However, this time I used a tuna patty instead of the usual beef
patty. Tuna is very delicious and, as compared to beef, is better for
the health and is an excellent source of nutrients like protein,
potassium, and omega-3 fatty acids. These nutrients all contribute in
maintaining good health and promoting weight loss. Good thing I came
across a tuna burger recipe on the internet and the instructions were
easy to follow. I just needed to make this dish perfect since it was
something my husband and I don’t usually eat. Fortunately, I
managed to grill the patty just right.
And for my next dish, I prepared a chicken pizza. Ever since the
success of my first pizza-making endeavor, my husband has been
begging me for another pizza dish. And if he loved my turkey pizza
last time, I am sure he’ll love the chicken pizza too. Chicken is a
good substitute for turkey and is a lot cheaper too. More so, chicken
is rich in niacin, an anticarcinogen, and selenium, a metabolism and
immune system booster. Talk about healthy! Although it took time to
prepare, I am satisfied with how the meal went. It looked and smelled
As expected, my husband loved the grilled tuna burger and the chicken
pizza. He said that my tuna burger was so tasty, he wanted me to
prepare them again the next day! As for the pizza, he said it tasted
good but he prefers the turkey. But overall, he said he loved the
meals I prepared and he hoped to have more of my new recipes in the
By the way, we both enjoyed the movies too. I am so glad that my
cooking innovation attempts were successful. We are definitely going
to spend more of our weekends at home.
Our escapade was really unforgettable especially our experience at
Tony Boloney’s. I’m glad that I found wakanetwork deal for it. Their
pizza was absolutely delicious that it inspired me to bake a pizza of
my own for my husband. I searched thoroughly online and looked for a
healthy recipe that my husband would love. I found this Turkey Pizza
recipe from MyRecipes.com. However, I made some changes to it using
products that I ordinarily use whenever I’m cooking.
See below the recipe I got from MyRecipes.com.
1 teaspoon COLAVITA® Extra Virgin Olive Oil*In the
original recipe they used Pompeian Olive Oil Regular from Bigg's
1 cup chopped onion *I just bought mine from the nearest
1 (10-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough *I used
their recommended Pillsbury Pizza Crust
Cooking spray *I used my favorite All Natural PAM®
2 cups chopped skinned cooked turkey
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded provolone cheese *I used
Treasure Cave's® Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese *I

Before going to the market to purchase all the ingredients I needed,
I made sure that I have a complete list of the ingredients. This is
to refrain from making several trips to the market. Also, I chose
more of the products I usually use for I believe in their quality.
I preheated the oven to 400°. As I wait, I heated the olive oil in a
large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. I added onion and
garlic; sautéd it 4 minutes as instructed. I stirred in tomatoes,
salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. I reduced the heat; simmer 15
minutes or until thick, and stirred it occasionally. I stirred in
parsley and basil. Then I removed it from the heat and let it cool
As directed, after cooking the tomato mixture for the pizza, I rolled
the dough into a 10-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Placed
the dough on a (12-inch) pizza pan or baking sheet coated with
cooking spray. I crimped edges of dough with my fingers to form a
rim. I spread the tomato mixture over the crust and left a 1/4-inch
border. I topped it with turkey; sprinkled it with the two types
shredded cheese I prepared. Then I baked it at 400° for 10 minutes,
After the baking has been accomplished, my husband and I were so
excited to taste it. The kitchen smelled so good as I pulled the
pizza out of the oven. We were undeniably satisfied with the taste -
not bad for a first time pizza maker. Thanks to MyRecipe.com for this
As part of our weekend getaway, my husband and I decided to go to
Atlantic City for an entire weekend to enjoy all the attractions and
activities AC has to offer.
Once at the hotel, I quickly browsed the wakanetwork internet to find some good
restaurants in the city. I came across a restaurant called Tony
Boloney’s that specialize in pizza and cheesesteaks. I read many
positive feedback about this restaurant so I decided to try their
specialties with my husband. I was lucky to find a 50% discount on
their large pizza on wakanetwork.
I told my husband about the deal I got. He is a great pizza fan and I
wanted his opinion on Tony Boloney’s. I presented my coupon and
waited for our large pizza to be served. My hubby decided to add
cheesesteaks and soda to our meal. I must say, we have tasted
different types of pizza but we were surprised with how Tony
Boloney’s tasted. The pizza was excellent; its crust is soft and
the sauce was delicious. The cheesesteak was superior as it was very
tasty and more satisfying from the others we’ve tried in the past.
We just never thought we’d find a pizza place like this in Atlantic
My only complaint is that their service was a little bit unpleasant.
It took them a lot of time to serve our food. They have a large
number of customers and I think they should have added more crews.
Our experience, all in all, was superb because of Tony Boloney’s
pizza and cheesesteak. My husband and I will definitely come back
here for more. I just hope their service would be better the next
time we visit.
3:00 in the afternoon and I'm thinking of what to eat for our
afternoon snack. I have to make a better snack because my husband has
no work today. Thank God it's Saturday. Today is his freedom rest day
and so he's expecting me to offer him a delicious afternoon snack.
I'm currently browsing wakanetwork deals and my husband is on the couch, too busy watching his all-time favorite
movie. And here I am, still in the kitchen, thinking of what food to
make for him. As I turned around, I saw a comb of banana and our
Hershey chocolate syrup on the table. Aha! It gave me the idea to
offer him a choco-banana milkshake with cheese fries. That will be a
good attack for our afternoon snack!
genuine chocolate flavor of Hershey chocolate syrup and the smell of
fresh banana is making me crave for a cold, cold milkshake. Making a
choco-banana milkshake for me and my husband is definitely a
refreshing idea for our craving, thirsty mouths, especially when we
combine it with cheese fries. Oh, I just love how my stomach feels
when eating my two favorite combination: milk chocalate and fries.
Did you know that shake is good for the summer season? During summer,
you really have to refresh yourself with any kind of cold drink so
that you won't feel irritated by the heat of the season. And
choco-banana milkshake is perfect for today's snack. It's rich,
creamy, and delicious.
on, give it a try. It is very easy. Here are the ingredients that you
need for a refreshing choco-banana milkshake.
tablespoon chocolate syrup
cup crushed ice
a blender, process all the ingredients until they are entirely mixed
together. Pour into a chilled glass. Then serve immediately.
night while I was writing an article about wakanetwork, I felt my stomach rumble as I
crave for my cousin’s seafood pasta. However, between writing three
articles and the late hour, I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I crashed
into being, forgoing a trip to the kitchen to sate my stomach.
came and I was able to finish all the wakanetwork articles I needed to write, all
the while thinking of having seafood pasta at my cousin’s glass
house. She asked me to visit her and promised me seafood pasta for my
time. And why shouldn’t I go? The first time I tasted her pasta, I
fell in love it. That’s reason enough alone to go visit her from
time to time.
makes her seafood pasta special?
we all know, seafood pasta consists of pasta covered with
mouthwatering sauce, topped with various seafood. You can make it
simple or grand - it just depends on your budget for the ingredients.
cousin’s specialty is all about the shrimps and the sauce. She
makes sure that there is an overload of shrimp in her seafood pasta.
However, what I love best about her pasta is the sauce due to its
addictive spice. I named it spicy shrimp pasta. Its pure tomato sauce
gives you a light taste but a heavy aftertaste. My cousin also
alternates between using oil- and tomato-based sauces that
complements the shrimp well. When it comes to the type of pasta, she
uses either fettuccine or linguine.
for the spice, my cousin especially uses fresh basil leaves. This
ensures freshness and a tangy taste to her pasta. She also sometimes
combines shrimp, artichokes, mushrooms, and olive oil in one pasta
dish because all of them are high in nutrients. With these
ingredients, she has made a flavorful and interesting alternative to
the standard pasta flavors.
