Avocado Egg Salad « Relishing It Before Radd and I had kids, there would be nights that we weren’t able to have dinner together. School, work, and friends sometimes just got in the way of sitting down for a full meal with each other. Now if I happened to be home on one of those nights, there was absolutely no doubt about what my dinner plan would be– egg salad. Wild, right? You see, I was never able to make egg salad for the both of us because– and I still don’t understand this– Radd despises hard-boiled eggs. Here, I’ve swapped out mayonnaise for a mashed avocado. The Recipe: Avocado Egg Salad (Serves 1) 2 hard-boiled eggs, diced, preferably organic/local 1/2 ripe avocado, mashed 1 1/2 tablespoons red onion, diced 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely chopped juice of 1/4 of a small lemon kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper How to make perfect hard-boiled eggs: In a sauce pan, place the eggs in a single layer. Have a wonderful weekend, friends! Laurie Like this: Like Loading...

Animal Photography: Useful Skill For Cooking Bang Bang Shrimp Time for another delicious football snack! This one would be good for a nice dinner too though! So this is supposed to be like the Bonefish dish with the same name but I’ve never had the dish so I can’t really say how close it is to the real thing. I can, however, say that it is amazing. Not going to lie, it was quite a bit of work because you have to deep fry the shrimp but seriously worth all the time spent staring into the pot of oil. Ingredients 1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined For the sauce: ½ cup mayonnaise 4-5 teaspoons chili garlic sauce, such as Sriracha sauce 1 teaspoon granulated sugar 1 teaspoon rice vinegar For the egg mixture: 1 egg, beaten 1 cup milk For the breading mixture: ½ cup all-purpose flour ½ cup panko breadcrumbs 1 teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon ground black pepper ¼ teaspoon onion powder ¼ teaspoon garlic powder ¼ teaspoon dried basil For frying: 8 to 12 cups vegetable oil Instructions Combine all ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl; cover and set aside.
a pretty autumn wreath Today I have a tutorial of sorts to share. It is not a full tutorial because 1. I learned to make the flowers from an already pretty amazing tutorial and 2. I left my camera in Ryan’s truck and was too impatient to wait to put it together until he came home so I don’t have photos of the actual attaching to the wreath phase of the project. Sometimes you just have to go with it when the crafting bug gets you. This wreath is a combination of a regular grape vine wreath you can purchase at the craft store, lots of coffee filter flowers and a few acorn and berry sprigs. Okay, so on with the tutorial. I wanted fall-ish colors for my flowers, so I used yellow, pink, red and orange paint. Mix your paint with water, stir well, scrunch in a stack of coffee filters and let them soak up the paint. I dried some flat on paper towels, but then ran out of room and made a clothes line to dry the rest. Okay, now on to the flower making part. Open up the filters and cut the outer ring open.
