Got (Hard-Boiled) Eggs?

(But first: The Vegan for Lent Challenge ended yesterday. I celebrated with a bit of ham, and some hard-boiled egg and cheese. Oh, and Trader Joe's Nacho Cheese Tortilla Chips, which had been calling my name for the last week from our snack shelf. I found the cheesiest one and it was good.

Vegans of the world, you have my utmost respect. While I walk away from Lent with some great lessons learned on reducing dairy from my diet, I embraced my cheese yesterday with a huge smile.)


So I am going to go out on a limb and say there is a fair chance you have some hard-boiled eggs in your fridge this very moment.

Am I right?

Even if you don't have leftover hard-boiled eggs, save this recipe for the next time you have a hankerin' for a really tasty, simple lunch or brunch dish. It is the mild, almost sweet flavor of the chives that sets this egg salad apart from its egg salad cousins. Oh, and the fact that I use only the whites of the eggs to reduce the fat, cholesterol and calories.

If you think you don't have chives on hand, a little quick forage around your yard might bring a pleasant surprise. Chives and wild onions proliferate in the wild this time of the year, so you just might stumble upon some. If you aren't sure, pick a few blades and give a quick smell. Your nose will let you know if you're in luck.

Simple Egg White Salad with Fresh Chives

6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled with most of the yoke removed
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Peel your hard-boiled eggs and remove the yokes (but don't sweat it if you have a little yoke in the egg). Chop and place in a bowl.

Add the fresh chives, mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Gently stir to combine.

Serve on whole wheat or other hearty bread points.

Serves 4-6 for lunch.

Life is sweet,

PS--Yeah, I know, I usually post my week's meals on Mondays...but I am still putting together our game plan after the busy Easter weekend!

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
