Hmmm food

So this monday I finally went to Trader Joes and stocked up in yummy healthy food for the last 10 days before leaving for France.
So as usual I roughly mapped out my week's menu. Gnocchis, Soup with meat balls, Ahi tuna, filet mignons....
Yesterday my neighbour treated me really treated me for an early birthday dinner to her favorite restaurant and boy was I happy that she had such good taste. So she invited me to the "Market Del Mar" it was absolutely delicious.
So of course today when I tried to put together my dinner I was still under the spell of those great cooks. So here I am with the following ingredients: Ahi tuna (for sure), asparagus or brocolini, israeli couscous also known as pearl couscous and the decision to make do I go mediterranean or do I go asian. Jessica suggested mediterranean and boy am I happy because it was really really good.
So I decided to dice some tomatoes, with some red onion, put that in a oven dish, with some olive oil, crushed garlic, rosemary and some balsamic vinegar.
I cooked this in the over at 350 for 30 to 45 minutes.
In the mean time I put the ahi tuna to marinate with some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, crushed garlic.
Cooked the pearl couscous per package instruction.
On mine I added some basil at the end.

Now I have this dream well actually I have several here are two of them:
1- Open a little cafe for lunch with a restricted menu like 2 hot dishes and some salads and quiches
2- the other would be to buy an old house and to fix it up most of it myself as much as possible. Actually my father in law bought this beautiful little house and I would love to restaure it.
