Simple Egg Salad Sandwiches {Recipe}

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.)

Ingredients

  • 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

{Inspired} Maple Tahini Cookies

The other day Heather posted about some tahini cookies and I wanted to try them. She was inspired by Cookies & Crafts.

(They did taste better than they look.)

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1.25 cup flour (I used buckwheat farinetta)
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

Mix everything together. Scoop onto a greased baking sheet (heaping soup spoon of batter for each cookie?). Try to put them farther apart than I did. I didn’t want to dirty two pans but I should have because they expanded. Bake at 350F for 8-9 minutes. Eat.

These were good. Next time I will make them with regular flour as buckwheat farinetta tends to have a bit of an odd flavor that not everyone likes. (I like it, but for example, Bobby does not.) I might add some coconut flakes too. Yum.

Bhakti Immersion Retreat 2013

I have really been MIA lately. One reason: I was on a yoga retreat for 4 days the weekend before last. We did the same retreat last August and loved it so of course we signed up as soon as registration opened this year.

I took no pictures because we left our phones in our cabin the whole time – completely technology-free weekend. It was wonderful!

Here is one picture via Instagram (Bobby and I are in there, not sure if you can see…)

Bobby is in a black sweatshirt behind the girl with the yellow scarf. I’m to his right in a grey sweatshirt behind the girl with a red plaid scarf. We went with another couple who are into yoga just as much as we are – Bobby’s coworker and his girlfriend. We all loved it!
