tuesday things I howsweeteats.com

1. I feel like I’m about 65 years old because I’m making EGG SALAD for lunch. I can’t decide if I feel like my mom or my grandma or both. If you have a to-die-for recipe for egg salad or a secret ingredient, please send it now because my eggs are boiling. Just no celery. Never.

2. Desperately wish this peanut butter bourbon milkshake would appear in front of my face. QUIT IT!

3. Had a dream last night that I made the most KILLER chocolate peanut butter ice cream, just like Kilwin’s. I was quite depressed to wake up and realize it wasn’t real. Is it an omen?!

4. Um. Apparently there are NEW EMOJIS!!! But still no bacon. How on earth is that even possible? I don’t even care about the new ones without bacon. Who is in charge here.

5. I can’t stop eating cherries. I’ve already been tricked twice thinking I had about $5 worth when I really had $13 dollar worth. I don’t even care. They are so juicy right now. Also, I feel the way about “juicy” that most people do about “moist.” There I said it.

6. My inner hopeless romantic is losing it over these Notebook-themed engagement photos. In my secret brain I’m thinking “why didn’t I think of that?”

7. We are still pacing ourselves with Orange is the New Black and while I am still liking it more than I did last season, most of the time I want to gag. I’m not into Mistresses as much as I thought I’d be. Are you watching it? I watched the finale of Game of Thrones even though I barely understood it but you know I hate to be left out. And this Sunday night starts our True Blood parties which is really just a lazy glutton fest. Cannot.wait.

8. I am, however, kind of having a heart attack after hearing that Now and Then may be made into a TV show. But but but… isn’t it going to be tough to reach a certain demographic since the people who adored the movie as kids are like… 30 now?

9. 10 ways you’re making life harder than it has to be. GAH. Love this.

    Have you done the egg salad with green olives thing? Using lots of olive juice in with the mayo. It’s my fave. No actual recipe for you. I add a little mustard too. Make it a bit like a deviled egg.

    I add a chopped avocado to egg salad. Just don’t mix it too much , it turns the egg salad a lovely shade of green.

    I know you said no celery… but this pickled celery from Smitten Kitchen http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2013/02/egg-salad-with-pickled-celery-and-coarse-dijon/ has been making it’s way into my egg salads and tuna sandwiches, and it’s killer. It doesn’t taste like celery! It’s like a super crunchy pickle. Mmm.

    Egg salad definitely makes me feel like I’m 29 going on 79, but I really really loved it with with cumin and jalapenos for a bit of a Mexican flare – http://www.mayheminthekitchen.com/jalapeno-egg-salad/

    I gave up on Mistresses after the first show of this season. It just isn’t as good as last season. :-( I AM, however, enjoying some Longmire on A&E. Cowboys. ‘Nough said. :-D

    But OMG, the Notebook photos! I die!

    Okay so for one thing, who creates these emojis?! Like, what?! We need five million new suns? I need to sit down and have a meeting with these emoji creators, because clearly they STILL do not have their priorities in order.

    For a second thing, thank you for sharing that Thought Catalog article! I was almost not going to click on it because it sounded like it would be another predictable TC article full of the same old yada yada that they post all the time, but then I decided that I trust the relevance of your Tuesday Things, and so I clicked. A very insightful read! I was surprised to be enlightened. I love the one about ascribing intent.

    Ask and you shall receive! Here is my dill and radish egg salad. It is SO GOOD. The secret is tons and tons of dill and radishes, plus properly cooked eggs. And although there’s a recipe for homemade mayo in there, you can always just use storebought. No worries.

    How can you do it without celery? It gives it the cruncccch & there’s like no taste. I did not pace myself with Orange is the New Black & now feel empty inside.

    Although sorry I cant remember how you feel about mushrooms, and also realize as I’m in Sydney (ie totally different time zone) this suggestion may have absolutely no relevance at all now. :)

    Have you tried mixing the eggs with hummus instead of mayo? Sabra hummus is my favorite.

    I am 27 and I love egg salad. I have to eat mine on sourdough bread though, SO good!! I tried pacing myself with this season of OITNB, but that became impossible. I was so afraid of things being spoiled! I am happy with the way it ended but I am a little heartbroken over what transpired with Suzanne. I love her and I am so afraid of how she is going to handle thigns next season. :(

    I don’t know about egg salad (because gross!) but I made a chicken salad this weekend and used Hot & Sweet mustard from Trader Joe’s and it was to die for.

    Also, that pictures of cherries by the pool is like my favorite picture. Ever.
