... Why haven't I thought of this before? We like egg salad on toast for breakfast sometimes. I switch it up. Plain, with pickles, with curry, with turmeric, sometimes olives, horseradish, (gee I guess I have a large egg salad repertoire)... The other day I made some with green olives & fresh rosemary, mayo, salt & pepper. Hubby wanted more but I only made a little. Boo. Next time I'll make more. The bread made it more delicious. When I was just picking up a few things at the store, passing by the bakery, I spy French bread straight out of the oven. Driven that direction by my nose probably. The bag was steaming, I paused to look at that bag for a second. When I realize I am looking at a bag of bread, contemplating on whether to buy it or not, I snap out of it, hoping no one saw me because I'm sure I had a big thought bubble above my head. So I pass it by. I looked around like I didn't care, then circled back around. I took it to the bakery lady and had her slice it for me. Far to dangerous to bring home in a loaf & slice myself. *chunk butter guilt *repeat. :P nom nom nom We normally don't eat white bread so it's a real treat. I'm not a candy, cake & cookie person, I'm a bread, pasta & chip person. Sugar is sugar. Anyway, I hate chunky egg salad so I usually meticulously chop the eggs one at a time into itty bitty pieces with a fork. Out of the blue, like a blue light special, the bulb went off! Pastry Cutters! Pow! That worked so great & such a time saver I thought I would post it for you.
Such a long post for a simple tip, but if you like egg salad, you might appreciate this tip just in time for Easter!
Did I make the price of eggs go up? hahaha Since I have been eating sorta kinda vegetarian, we have been lots of eggs. In the past year they have gradually become more & more expensive, almost doubling in price. My hubby ordered a cobb salad the other day and there was no egg on it, he said he didn't complain & joked it was probably too expensive. I say sort of vegetarian, because I love McD's Jalapeno Burger - what a surprise right? (pepperfool) I normally would not pick McD's as my go to place for a great burger and I don't even like cheeseburgers! I never order a cheeseburger coz the cheese is all slimy & makes the meat taste slimy & taste less meaty to me, but I like the Jalapeno Burger. It's all about the peppers. I do get one now & then or have a little tuna, or chicken, but not very much. If you love a cheeseburger I hope I didn't just ruin it for ya. hahaha
Speaking of veggies.... I have been drowning my sorrows a little with paint. Hours go whizzing by. My #4 Mom I call her was just hospitalized. Please pray for Mom Freda and her family. She was diagnosed with Sundowners syndrome and her husband has Alzheimer's. It a difficult time her children & family. I also could use a little extra money with so many things coming up and things breaking. Don't you find that sometimes happens all at once? I am putting most of my small pieces on Ebay. Click HERE to see what's there. My sister, SandyPetals, who I love so much, has been encouraging me to zendoodle like she does, I've dabbled, but when I make a mistake or a line I don't like...it's over, but she says there are no mistakes, just do it, she said paint some eggplants! So I did, then radish, then peppers, then cherries, and green beans....
These turned out to be "happy little paintings" as someone once said. haha The doodle paintings surprise me when they are finished. I love eggplants - but that's another post! I've done 2 eggplant paintings, 2 radishes, cherries... I started these & can't quit. I want to paint some for my kitchen or at least make prints for my kitchen. I'm fond of the radishes. I love to eat radishes now but I didn't use to. I salt them and let them sit for 1/2 hour or so. Hey they are also good on egg salad!
Create a great day!
