Yes, we are finally here 🙂 and…nothing better than a long weekend in front of us. Quite cold, but we’ll manage with some spicy food and good red wine.

You know, I cannot stay away from spicy food. Well, neither of us, my daughter included too. So happy she is adding a bit of heat here and there. Just a pinch.

We have some friends coming for dinner over the weekend and I am trying to come up with some really yummy and easy recipes to impress them. Really lucky to have my appetizers nailed down with this spicy tuna and pomegranate salad, thanks to Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna.
