Egg Salad

First of all check out the plate in the picture.  I finally bought new dinnerware!  I’ve had the same plates for almost 10 years and even though they served me well it was about time to update my kitchen.  I have been looking casually for the last month or so and when I saw these they immediately caught my eye.  I didn’t buy them right away as I wasn’t 100% sure.  They are a bit busy, but I knew I wanted a fresh change.  Something a bit funky but not too over the top.  And then I got a coupon in the mail!  Of course this was the universe telling me yes these are them!  This was our first meal on our new plates.  I love the look and feel.  Perfect :).

Saturdays are always my least favorite day to cook.  I normally manage breakfast but have no desire to do anything in the kitchen for lunch or dinner.  So Friday night I thought ahead and hard boiled a few eggs and made egg salad.  It was awesome when Josh mentioned a dinner suggestion and I was able to say it’s already made and ready to eat!  We spent the late afternoon at the playground and came home to a light but satisfying salad.
