Week 65 Wednesday (4/8/15)

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Perfect Egg Salad
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
                  Pages:  119 - 120     Copyright:  2013  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 168 calories per serving, if 8 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         This egg salad is creamy and filled with flavor. I personally would have added dill.  Ever since I discovered it in tuna this definitely swayed me to add dill in egg salad, too.  I really loved this on the sandwich that I am featuring tomorrow.  I have never put egg salad on top of a ham sammy, but this was so darn filling that I was full for six hours.  I liked using this salad in a new way.

Here are the ingredients I 
used to make the egg salad 

Ignore the sandwich - that is on tomorrow's blog, 
because I failed to take a photo of the egg salad alone.

 Gabbin’ About Gratitude
         Who would think that anyone would be thankful for tears, but I really am? I don’t cry a lot, but when something touches my heart, or I have a memory of something or someone, tears are a relief.  The Hallmark Channel is one catalyst for tears. Their movies frequently touch a soft place in my heart, and I find myself crying.  So let those tears flow. They may make you feel better.

Memory Musings

From 1978 – 1980,  I had two wonderful cats named Sunshine and Ebony. They were named after the song “Ebony and Ivory,” but I was not thrilled with Ivory, so I named her something that seemed right. They were two beautiful cats that I got from a farm off of LaFox Rd. in Wasco, IL. They were from the same litter. They were wonderful pets. They moved to Florida with me, and came back when we returned to Illinois. I couldn’t keep them because I was off to college. For the short time that I had them, they were the light of my life.
