1 small jar roasted red -
1 small jar green vinegar -
1 tomatoes, cut in wedges

On platter, arrange lettuce, leaving a hole in the middle large
enough to hold the can of tuna. Drain oil from the can over the
lettuce, then place tuna in the middle of platter.
Divide platter into sections, placing 1/2 slice of cheese in each
section. On top of cheese, place 1 rolled slice of each type of meat.
Drain liquid from red pepper jar over all, then randomly place
peppers, olives, and tomatoes around the platter. Salt and pepper to
taste, then pour more olive oil over all.
Eat heartily, accompanied by much loud Italian conversation. In fact,
I typed this accompanied by much loud Italian conversation. My
parents were here, and both were shouting instructions over my
shoulder. They disagreed about the arrangement of the lettuce - my
mother said that the hole in the middle of the platter was necessary;
my father insisted that it wasn't, saying you can just dump the tuna
on top of the lettuce. I finally had to give up on this reply until
they went home. So now, in the peace and quiet of the aftermath, I've
finished it. Hope you had a wonderful holiday.

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Frozen Fish Can Taste as Good as Fresh!
One of the problems with using frozen fish is that it often tastes bland and stale after it has been defrosted. This can be easily overcome by defrosting the fish in a bowl of milk, which brings back the 'nice' taste of fresh fish.
Blueberries, A Superfood that Tastes Great Too!
Blueberries are packed with phytoflavinoids and antioxidants - both extremely good for your health. They are also rich in vitamin C, something that most of us could do with 'getting a bit more of', and also quite high in potassium. Some expert nutritionalists claim that eating blueberries helps to reduce the risk of serious complaints like cancer and heart disease
