A Very Good Egg Sandwich

P1260470

Hi! I feel like I've abandoned this website. But I wouldn't do that, because I would miss all of you. And I would not feel prompted to cook anything but noodles if I don't bother to blog.

My daughter's back and the last two days were filled with 'overhaul' sessions. I'm pleased that she has shaken quite a few kgs off but as usual, she has not taken care of her skin. I picked at her face the afternoon she arrived, leaving it all dotted and inflamed. She has resorted to wearing caps again. Then I packed her off to my hairdresser Julia for an attack on her tresses which haven't seen any scissors for the last 6 months. Then it was to the optician to get her contacts. Next she'd be wanting to shop for clothes since I noticed she hardly brought anything back but her easel and a ton of paint tubes. I tend to spoil her, so it's a good thing I only have one daughter or I'll be broke. But most of all, she's been driving (and giving me heart attacks and causing me to step on imaginary brakes) and we've been yakking.

As you can tell, I'm still not doing much cooking for you all. Yes, when I cook, it's partly to blog. But you wouldn't want to read about everyday boring food would you? You would? Okay, you get what you want ...sometimes (haha, WMW, excuse my plagarizing).

If you are a morning sleepy head like me, boil the eggs the day before and leave them in the fridge. In fact, you can chop and mince everything first and then combine them with the mayo in the morning. The kids can slap the filling on and make their own sandwich by now don't you think. Now I've even told you how I steal an extra 5 minutes in bed.

A Very Good Egg Sandwich

4 eggs
veg*
3 T good mayo
1 T Dijon mustard
salt and pepper
3 T grated Cheddar cheese (optional)
white or wholemeal bread, sliced thick

*Use chopped cuke (I like Lebanese cukes), celery, red onions (don't really like them but they look good in pictures, don't they), watercress etc

1. Put the eggs into a small pot and when water boils, count 2 minutes and switch fire off. Let eggs sit in the covered pot for 15 minutes. Throw water away and run tap water into the pot. Wait 10 minutes. Peel eggs. Cut into small cubes. Be careful not to mash up the yolks or the sandwich filling will be too creamy.

2. Mix everything together and spread on white or wholemeal bread.

Hey, was just about to ask the same question...isit true about the overnight eggs and men? Mum insists on the theory that if men were to eat overnight eggs, their "eggs" will grow big...LOL..
Since I have 3 men in my house, let me try this recipe on them! muahahaha...

u use knife to chop the egg white. I use fork to smash them. may be i m stupid or nonsense, I like when my white are smash using fork, bcuz it will turn into irregular tiny pieces, and nice to bite. if cut with knife, like very 'cube'-y and 'square'-y feel when u bite them. ( RoAR! )

anywys, so hang fuk oh H-Yi!!! polish by mum like princess!! ;)

joe, em: u know, this superstition must've been made up by some bad grandmother to push leftover eggs onto girls!u know how they (used to) favor boys in china. but this overnight eggs r bad for guys is rubbish. if so, they shdn't eat overnight cakes or egg noodles or cookies etc etc.however, joe, n em, i am not liable for any shrinkage or expansion of any of ur 'eggs'...

ganache: hahaha, u shd've asked ur kids:)

If I liked egg salad, this would be absolutely fantastic. I love the addition of the cukes and the cheese. Maybe I will try that with my chicken or tuna salad. Thanks for the idea. You mean the kids are supposed to KNOW where the bread is??
