I hope you didn't miss me too much... I mean, I haven't really given you much chance to miss me this week, have I? I'm on a roll, but I can't promise anything over the weekend. You just never know what will happen on the weekend.
For now, here's a picture of the best eggsalad in the world:
It certainly is not the best picture of an eggsalad sandwich, but I think that I've officially mastered eggsalad. Should I reveal my secrets? To you? Hmm... mayhaps.
First, I will say that if you know me at all you know that my all-time favorite way to eat eggsalad is on a waffle. A homemade Belgian waffle made with the Bisquick waffle mix. That's normal, right? I've made other kinds of waffles, but Bisquick is best. Just my opinion.
I generally don't like anything crunchy in my eggsalad (or tuna, for that matter, but I did break that rule last night!). Celery is not allowed near my eggsalad at all, so if you're a celery-lover, leave now. I've also been trying to add veggies to everything I eat, so there might be fresh spinach and scallions on the sandwich, which breaks all kinds of Alissa-laws.
Anyway, you hard-boil some eggs. I always put a pot of water on my stove and add the eggs right away. Once it's boiling, I let the eggs sit in the boiling water for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, I turn off the heat and let them sit there until the water stops boiling. I scoop them out with a big spoon and put them into a container in the fridge. I NEVER have to worry about the eggs being hard to peel... and there's something nice about knowing how your eggs got hard-boiled *ahem ahem* (you know who you are).
Alissa's New Eggsalad Recipe
2 Hard-boiled eggs, sliced
1 t. Light Mayo
1 Laughing Cow cheese wedge (any kind, except blue cheese or swiss-yuck?)
Season with paprika, pepper, Old Bay, and ground mustard (or none of the above if you don't like them)
Put all of the above into a bowl and mix and then add to your waffle... er, sandwich. Pita? Flatbread? Whatever.
Add tomato, avocado, spinach, scallions, etc. if you're feeling particularly adventurous. It's really that easy. Mmm... :-)
For dinner, I may have made some more Mexi-Rice Bowls, but with organic beef and a ton of grilled veggies. I got compliments from both my dad and hubby. Score! Little did not seem at all interested. She spit out the pearl onion, part of a red pepper, and the avocado I had her attempt to eat. She did like the meat, though. Baby likes meat.

So, brown rice, organic ground beef, avocado, fresh salsa, black olives, light sour cream, scallions, pearl onions, red onions, red bell peppers, and mushrooms. Ahhhh-mazing.
Have I convinced you to try it yet? I love Mexican food.
