Tuna Steaks

At the risk of, as in other forums when I ask for a recommendation and get sarcastically told how ďthe googleĒ works... lol ... I wanted to ask if anyone has a recipe rec for Tuna Steaks.

- we eat too much beef (Kansas loves cow), and Iím just learning how to fix non-shellfish seafood.

- Iíve literally never had tuna that didnít come in a can. And I hate the stuff in the can.

So, any good place to start? We have a rice pilaf with garlic and spinach, a salad with homemade honey mustard dressing and steamed asparagus with Parmesan on the menu plan for tonight with it, if that helps.

Thanks in advance. Iím looking at these things in my fridge and some recipes on Pinterest and Iím at a loss.

Has anyone used BLURB to self publish?

I run a small theatre that is dedicated to helping fellow Kansas playwrights and I thought I'd copy a killer theatre in London (Finborough) who publishes the new work that they are producing with the first few pages serving as the program for that particular run of the show. The cost of the published play is a part of the ticket price. I liked that idea and liked the idea of getting the new work that I and other writers "published" under our theatre's banner, even though it isn't Dramatists or a big publisher.

I'm liking Blurb so far. Any thoughts?

Anyone else stuck using a CPAP/BIPAP?

I hate it. But I wonít die from my severe apnea. So I use the horrific thing routinely. Iím at level 27 so itís like sleeping in a hurricane.

Anyway, I can only sleep about six hours on it or my bad back locks up and I canít function. So I try to go to sleep at midnight and wake up around six. But the worst part is what my doc called a CPAP hangover? I apparently stay in REM sleep right up until the alarm goes off? So until 10 or 11 each morning I feel hungover minus the nausea. So I can be in debilitating pain for hours and need help just getting out of bed or I can feel like Iíve been on a bender.

Anyone else have that hangover? How do you deal with it? I think itís the lesser of two evils.

Full sheet pan cake recipes

Hi! Lurker since the Bush selection, couldnít stay quiet with the Orange Menace in office so Iíve started posting. :waves:

Iíve been asked to bring in a dessert for the funeral reception of a friend at church. They expect 300-400 and there are only a half dozen of us baking.

I have a professional oven (Iím a writer so that means I have a real career in food! Lol), and full sheet pans that fit perfectly. I just canít find a good, simple cake recipe for a full sheet online. Everything seems to be half sheets, etc. Iím most worried about bake times.

Iíve got a fantastic frosting so even just a simple white or yellow cake would work.

Any resources or recipes?
