Egg Salad

Spring break recap in one paragraph: check weather reports for late spring snowstorms to wreak havoc on driving conditions near the TX-NM border.  Amarillo now has a Pei Wei, Rudy’s and Cheddar’s to add to your fine, on-the-road dining choices.  The Holiday Inn in Trinidad, CO will save left behind Snoopys for pick up on the return drive home.  When hot water heater pilot lights blow out warm baths can be accomplished with enough stovetop boiled water.  Don’t follow your family down a “blue-black” ski run.  Eventually you will stop sliding down the mountain head first on your back.  Searching for the condo's lost Apple TV remote is less fun than searching for Easter eggs.  The kids impressed themselves by not throwing up once on the long car ride.  I am too old to ski and my still sore body reminds me of that.

I went on an egg hunt of my own and scored this fantastic recipe from Debbie S. via Krista.  Delicious on its own or try serving it City CafĂ© to Go style (on toasted sourdough bread with spinach, tomatoes and bacon.)

Egg Salad
1.      1/2 cup mayo
2.      4 tsp. lemon juice
3.      2 tsp. dried minced onion
4.      1/2 tsp. salt
5.      1/2 tsp. pepper
6.      12 hard boiled eggs, chopped
7.      1 cup celery, finely chopped

Combine all and chill until ready to serve.  Serves 8, 1/2 cup servings.  Enjoy!
