Every Sunday morning I go to the farmers’ market. There is one right on the corner of my block. Today I got delicious fresh bread from Bread Alone (Whole Wheat Catskill Bread) and eggs from my favorite organic stand.
In my fridge I have a jar of homemade dill pickles from Maria.
Of course I had to make egg salad.
We each ended up having 2x what you see here. (Bobby’s is the one with sriracha, mine is the regular.)
Simple Egg Salad Sandwiches
- 5 small-medium eggs (if you have bigger eggs, 4 will suffice)
- 3-4 tablespoons mayo (don’t skimp – this is what makes it good)
- 2 teaspoons mustard
- 1/4 cup finely chopped dill pickle
- < 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (you don’t need much; the pickles have salt)
- pepper to taste

I had to keep track of what I ate for a day for something, so I figured – why not take pictures and post a What I Ate Wednesday?
This is 1 scrambled egg with some swiss (Jarlsberg) and sauteed onions. I also had a slice of whole grain toast with butter, a pear (some of it is unpictured – I was snacking as I prepped the plate), some sliced tomato (from Maria’s garden in NJ – Maria is my Grammie’s caretaker), sauteed onions, and sauerkraut (homemade by Maria).
It was really delicious. I have been eating a lot of sauerkraut lately because Maria gave me a big container of it.
I also had an unpictured 1/2 cup of coffee with coconut creamer.

Bobby and I spent this weekend up in Ithaca, NY for our college reunion. We didn’t stay in the dorms and go to all the CU Reunion events; we stayed at the Super 8 next to Wegmans with our best friends and we went to a few events that sounded fun (wine tasting!).
It all started Wednesday night…
We left work a little early Wednesday so that we could get to NJ in time to see my dad’s softball game (they lost, unfortunately, but it was to the best team in the league). After the game we went to pick up my Grammie’s car that we borrowed for the trip.
