Favorite Things… Friday?

Ok, so I realize it’s Saturday, but I’m the boss around here, right? I meant to have this done on Saturday, then Sunday, then Monday.   But, well, I have a six month old.  Well, now it’s Tuesday, but, like I said, this is my blog and I can do what I want, right?

This week I…

Read this. post. and cried, obviously: “I’m not telling you to not look at women. Just the opposite. I’m telling you to see women. Really see them. Not just with your eyes, but with your heart.” 

Drooled over these, but ate this instead. Purely because it was easier, and I was crafting, people. It was good, but not as delicious as the cheesecake bars, I’m sure.

Sewed these for Ellie Jo’s crib.

Came across this awesome idea at this wonderful adoption blog.

Have been listening to this.

And watched waaaay too many episodes of Parks and Rec.

The Mother of Invention…

Yesterday I had a crazy craving for an egg salad sammie.  So, I put a few eggs in a pot, covered them with cold water, and set to boiling them.  Just as I was prepping the ice bath for the boiled eggs, I looked in the fridge and realized that I had maybe 3 tablespoons of Mayo left.  Deciding to save the eggs for tomorrow, I resigned myself to a boring old salad and started pulling ingredients out of the fridge.  That’s when I saw him.  That delicious, life saving veggie.

Sitting there in my fridge.

Mr. Avocado, meet egg salad.

I’m sure someone else has done this before, but as I started throwing ingredients in that bowl, I felt like I was making something up.  Something WONDERFUL.  Here’s my “recipe.”

Avocado Egg Salad

  • 1 Avocado
  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • about 3 T mayo
  • Diced Red Onion
  • Little bit o’ Sea Salt
  • Lime Juice





I was going to throw in some Dijon Mustard, but I realized that the bottle in the fridge was a) expired and b) pretty much empty.  It tastes great without, though.  I used a potato masher to mash up the avocado and the eggs and then I added all the other ingredients. Not too tricky at all.  Toast up a couple slices of bread and pair with lettuce on a sammie.

The verdict: It’s delicious. David and I decided that we don’t want to make our Egg Salad any other way ever again.
