First At Home Eggcellent Meal =)

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”

How true is that right?! I think my first home cooked dinner would fit into the category of dining well! I have been brainstorming so many new recipes at college and have a whole notebook scribbled with my game plan. So I present to you my first “at home” feast. Bon appétit!

On the menu:


I so wish I could suggest somewhere to buy this marbled rye bread, but unfortunately it is made by a local bakery in town. Isn’t it so pretty?! It did not disappoint!


   I have reviewed the Imagine soup before, but the organic Tomato flavor still is my favorite. I highly suggest picking up a carton of this from your local store if your lucky enough to have it. This soup doesn’t come from a can, so it doesn’t have that odd can taste—instead it tastes like it was made fresh like 2 minutes before you ate it! My dad actually asked if I made it homemade. Nope, sorry dad, but just as good! I added a little pepper and parm seasoning to jazz it up a bit!


This egg salad was phenomenal, not to toot my own horn or anything. =P It’s definitely not your typical egg salad, it’s a pumped up version that is so good, and so good for you!  


    All together now---->

  • Chop celery and asparagus and add to eggs.
  • Add in miracle whip, mustard, lemon juice, and seasonings. Mix together and cover. Chill for about an hour, or you can eat it right away if you simply cannot wait! =)
