We make this salad a lot in the summer. It makes your house/refrigerator smell like the south end of a skunk, but it is worth it. Eggs are a great way to get in a quick and easy protein, and great for work lunches (which I have to start thinking about again soon). Ugh.
Classic Egg Salad
6 eggs, hard boiled, chopped
1/4 c. mayo
1/8 c. mustard
1 dill pickle spear, chopped
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and chill. Serve on toast, lettuce, or crackers.
Check out the cupcakes I picked up from Scratch Bakery when I was back home this weekend! In order of my preference (yes, I tried them all) - Peanut Butter Cup, Mint Chocolate Chip, Raspberry Love, Red Velvet. Honestly, all were great, you just can't go wrong at Scratch Bakery in Cedar Falls, Iowa. If you live in the area be sure to "like" their Facebook page, as they always have great deals and free cupcake giveaways!
Of course I requested my mom's Cinnamon Crescents for breakfast. I've featured them before, so easy, it is almost like an open faced cinnamon roll? But easier.
Make them soon.
And last, but certainly not least - the beloved Indian Taco. While I was home this weekend, it was my hometown's annual celebration, which of course means carnies, rides, parades, and vendors galore. We didn't get down there to check it out because of persistent rain, but my mom did go get us Indian Tacos for lunch.
Oh. My. God.
I haven't had one in probably 10 years, but it was SO worth the wait. It is a classic Indian fry bread as the base, then layered with taco meat, lettuce, tomato, cheese and salsa. I need to try and recreate this at home sometime, but I'm sure it would not turn out as good. These ladies have been making these for years and definitely have the technique down to a science.
So, that was our weekend - great food, friends and family. Now on to my last week of maternity leave....
Bring on the waterworks.
