I want to start with saying this is neither earthy, or has bananas in it. These came about last Saturday afternoon, when I was hungry and felt the need for something fried but not utterly unhealthy, and I started rummaging around the plastic tubs of food to be found in my dorm room. And what did I find? Something fishy.
Tuna. I had about seven cans of it, for some odd reason. So what do you do with seven cans of tuna? Well, you fry them up and make tuna cakes, obviously!
THIS was the recipe I used, altering it slightly, of course. Mostly in portion size, but also in ingredients. I’m not too fond of spicy things, and tuna and jalapeno peppers didn’t sound tasty to me, so I replaced those with green onions. The product? DELICIOUS, and fast and simple too. Sure, the bubbling olive oil was a little but of a safety hazard, but hey, if you don’t try new things and tricks, you won’t grow.

Being back in college means a few things,  one of those being sharing what little ingredients there are between you and your dormmates and making a meal out of it. This was one of those times. Taking pasta, sauce, chicken, spinach, tomatoes, bread, and cheese between us, my girls and I came up with the above dinner.
It may not look like much, but it was quite tasty. The bread was just a spur of the moment thing; sourdough topped with garlic powder, tomatoes, and cheese. And we made enough to feed seven people, so it was overall a very nice ‘welcome back’ dinner.As a note, from this point on, even if my posts are sporadic, I intend to document and show how eating in college doesn’t have to be all about ramen cups and pizza. My friends and I try to make our cooking as healthy as possible, so I will be posting some of their creations as well. Hope you enjoy it!
