I wanted egg salad sandwiches for Monday lunch (shhh... I can hear l you saying “they ate eggs?”) I decided to forget the cholesterol and I boiled the eggs,
I peeled the first egg!
The shell came off in two perfect halves, the egg was smooth. I peeled the second egg, perfectly smooth egg.
I grab the Coolpix and mutter to bob as he is watching TV and not listening.
“I can’t believe this, since I am going to mash these eggs into mush you can just bet every one of them will peel perfectly.”
And they did all six of them, perfectly peeled and gazing up at me (no we did not eat all six for lunch)
More mutters fluttering out to the non listening male in front of the TV.
“ every time I peel eggs to make deviled eggs, it is like the devil gets hold of the eggs and they come out with holes in them and in pieces.”
“ It is going to hurt to mash those perfect eggs.” The Man stays quiet.
I say a little louder to man not listening. (he knows when to keep quiet)
“Hey, I found something we can AGREE on. We both like egg salad, we both like salad cubes, mustard, and mayo in it, we both will not eat it with celery (both our mothers made it that way).
We will not discuss the fact he likes his cut in half (must be angled not straight) and I like mine whole. He likes potato bread, I like rye or white.
Oh well, we almost agreed on something.
My mind being what it is, I thought, why is this called a salad, to me salad includes lettuce. no lettuce here.
OH GREAT GOOGLE.......Define Salad
a usually cold dish consisting of vegetables, as lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers, covered with a dressing and sometimes containing seafood, meat, or eggs.
THIS is more like it.
any of various dishes consisting of foods, as meat, seafood, eggs, pasta, or fruit, prepared singly or combined, usually cut up, mixed with a dressing, and served cold: chicken salad; potato salad. (no mention of egg salad)
and last but not least....
Salad greens, can one of you define Salad Greens?
