Grilled Tuna with Mango Salad ~Molly

This is yet another recipe I stole from Epicurious.com, although it was originally in Bon App├ętit Magazine. It's super easy and an awesome summer meal.


1 Mango, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
3/4 cup Red Onion, chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
3 T Cilantro (or basil for all you cilantro haters!)
2 T Fresh Lime Juice
2 T Olive Oil
4 Tuna Steaks, 1 inch thick

Mix first five ingredients. Set aside.
Preheat grill or broiler. Brush tuna with olive oil and grill until opaque on both sides. Top with mango salad and serve.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes~by Kelsey

This is what Lydia wants for breakfast every morning.  Riker likes them, too, but he tops his with peanut butter instead of syrup.

Ingredients:
Pancake mix of your choice, made by directions on the package
Chocolate chips

Mix up the batter.  Pour the pancake in the pan.  Sprinkle chocolate chips on top.  Flip.  Enjoy!

Lydia's pancake is supposed to be shaped like an "L" in the above photo.
