Bite size tuna melts

1. Make yourself some tuna salad: Can of tuna, drained. Finely chopped celery. Spoonful of relish. Spoonful of mayo. Dash of salt. Mix it up real good. Give your cat a little tuna juice because, OMG you opened a can of TUNA

2. Grab some gluten free crackers. (These are Mary's)

3. Place a slice of sharp cheddar on the cracker.

4. Place a spoonful of tuna on top. Pack it real tight in a measuring spoon so it doesn't fall all over the place.

5. Broil for a few minutes until the cheese gets melty and the tuna warms up and the edges of the crackers get toasty.

6. Place a piece of tomato on top.

That's it.

Greek Yogurt Muesli

Most days, my second breakfast consists of this, bottom to top:

Gluten Free Oats
Greek Yogurt
Fresh or frozen fruit

When made on Sundays, the liquids soak into the oats and soften them up by the time I eat it on workdays, making a significantly more substantial snack than just your plain old fruit & yogurt.
Apparently, this parfait-type of dish can be considered a type of Muesli.

Sometimes I make a larger portion and just eat this. Sometimes I make a smaller portion and pair it with a muffin, or in this week's case, cheesy scrambled eggs.

Either way, it's delicious, healthy, and cheap- those individual packs of fruit & greek yogurt can add up.
