Clean house. Grocery shopping done. Dinner done and kitchen cleaned. Windows open and the sheer curtains fluttering slightly in the breeze. And here I am, curled up with Pepper in my lap, watching "Frequency" with Eddie Dale.
It's been a nice weekend. We had rain on Friday (well, some flash flooding, to be honest!) and again yesterday. We went out to dinner last night with Bonnie & Matt and the kids, and some of their friends, to celebrate Matt's promotion. Although he just opened the neighborhood market store in Merkel back in January, he has already been tapped to be general manager at a new store in San Angelo, that is about to be built. We are so proud of the way he is scrambling right on up the management ladder and it was a fun evening!
After a day of housecleaning, I was craving something light and easy for supper. Inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, I went on a search for the perfect recipe for Bacon Avocado Egg Salad. I saw a photo, but there was no link back to a recipe. I browsed a bit, finding several variations on the bacon/avocado/egg theme and culled the basic idea for this recipe.....
Bacon Avocado Egg Salad Sandwiches
1 large, or 2 small, avocados - peeled and mashed
Squeeze of lemon juice
4 large eggs, boiled and chopped
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
4 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled (I used black peppered bacon)
In a bowl, add a squeeze of lemon juice to the mashed avocado, to help prevent quick browning. Gently stir in the chopped eggs, crumbled bacon and 1 Tbsp of mayo. I used a bit of fresh ground black pepper and Mrs. Dash for seasoning.
To build the ultimate sandwich -
Toast sliced bread. Spread with a bit of mayo and plenty of the egg salad; top with sliced tomato and baby spinach.
I simply cannot describe how scrumptious this concoction is!!!!
This meal is actually pretty healthy. It is chocked full of protein and "healthy" fat; between the eggs and avocado, you simply don't need any meat with this meal. And the ingredients are simple and almost always in my kitchen.
If you give it a try, let me know what you think!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and let's get the week off to a great start!!!
