You know when you spend an hour writing a wonderful post to go along with a delicious and awesome recipe and then you accidentally press something and it disappears and to much of your clicking, panicking, and dismay – it just doesn’t come back?

Yeah, that just happened.

Drat. (a nice version of the actual word that escaped my mouth)

I don’t even remember what I wrote because I was totally “in the zone” and I feel like anything I could attempt to replicate just wouldn’t work. So, just take a little time, scroll through the photos of this super yummy sesame chia crusted tuna poke (which I made whilst dreaming of our upcoming Hawaii trip – eek!)
