This should come as no surprise

As a college student, I can be quite lazy.

Ok. So. Maybe it’s not laziness so much as I put everything of until the veeeeery last minute. My procrastination/laziness sometimes comes from being nervous about classes, work, job interviews, or new recipes. Sometimes it comes from me being a Forgetful Franny. Mostly it’s the latter. But let me tell you.. In the case that I am about to elaborate on there’s no one to blame but myself. I am aware of this and I’m mostly OK with it, but there’s nothing I can really do to change. I think to really grasp what I’m talking about I need to tell you a few tidbits about myself.

I don’t own bread.

I never boil eggs.

I love egg salad sandwiches.

Therein lies a small problem that I’ve had for quite some time.Then I read an entry over at Noble Pig and whatever problems I had vanished, as she almost always does when I read her blog. That, my friends, was when I realized I can have my egg salad sandwiches and not boil eggs. This is what I found:

Scrambled Egg Salad
Adapted from It's All Gouda

7 large eggs, scrambled
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon mustard
1/4 cup chopped green onion
4 sweet pickles (or dill), diced
Salt and pepper to taste

Scramble seven, large eggs in a nonstick pan. Turn them out on a cutting board and give them a good chop.

Add the chopped eggs to a bowl along with 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 Tablespoon mustard, 1/4 cup chopped green onion, 4 diced sweet pickles and salt and pepper to taste. Mix until you have your desired consistency.

Refrigerate for one hour or longer before serving on your favorite bread or roll.

Amounts of ingredients will change depending on how many eggs you use. (I only used 3 eggs. And it was one too many for my appetite)

I cannot even begin to tell you how my life has changed. I even went out and bought bread just for the occasion. Bread that is now in my freezer and will probably go uneaten for a month or 2. Two out of three ain't bad.


Day 23, money spent thus far: $43.94

I had a craving for cold fruit and to surprise BF with homemade easy cheese danishes, so a trip to the grocery store was in order.
