My in-laws have been wonderful with me and my dietary needs. They special-made meals catered to my
picky delicate palate when I first arrived in Belgium (luckily, there are very few foods I don't like now) and since I've gone gluten and dairy free, they've done their best to create meals I can enjoy as well when they know I'll be eating with them.
I usually only eat dinner at their house nowadays, since the hubster and I have moved out and gotten a place of our own in the big city, but every so often I find myself there around lunch time. Everyone else in the house just grabs the box of sandwich fixin's from the fridge and defrosts a couple slices of bread, but I can no longer do that. I have to prepare something special for me.
I've therefore created an easy, throw-together type tuna salad that I eat nearly every lunch time spent at their house. They almost always have the ingredients needed to make it, and if not, I improvise a bit with what I find in their fridge and pantry.
It may not be that pretty to look at, but it's always simple, always fast and always delicious - just the way food should be!
