Avacado Egg Salad

DSC_0182

This has been one of my go to recipes for a few years now.  Even if you don’t like egg salad, don’t knock this one until you try it.  The avocados and spices give it a whole new flavor, and it’s much healthier than regular egg salad.  I got the original recipe from a blog on pinterest called {Never} Homemaker, but as I tend to do I changed some thinks around to my liking and to make it my own.  So you can read the original and mine and possibly even tweak it some more if you’d like! Ingredients:

  • 4 hard boiled eggs, sliced
  • 1 diced avacado
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • handful of chopped green onions
  • 3 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder

Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir everything up. I like to eat mine on a tortilla with some fresh kale, but Ben likes his on bread.  Try it however you like, I’ve also just ate it before. 😉

Sunday Brunch with Beermosas

IMG_5350

So I can’t take credit for this lovely meal because Ben made it, but since I haven’t posted any recipes lately or drink recipes um…well ever, I thought I’d take a picture.  Last Saturday was Valentines Day so Ben took me out to brunch at a beautiful little spot in in Chicago called Trencherman where we had beermosas and amazing food.  I had the lemon pancakes, yum!  Ben wanted to see if he could recreate the beermosas and he did, using 1/4 a grapefruit juiced mixed with 1 tablespoon of honey combined with an IPA beer.  We used Anti-Hero by Revolution Brewing, but you can use whatever you prefer.  Just  mix the honey grapefruit juice mixture in with the beer and that’s it.  I usually don’t like IPA’s and I am not a fan of grapefruit but for some reason these things mixed together taste amazing to me!  Just give it a try if you are reluctant, I was at first too but I found my new favorite way to drink beer!

The sandwiches are also by Ben, he’s such a good cook! 🙂  He made cheese omelets and put them on wheat toast with tomatoes and kale.  It was a perfect brunch for a chilly morning.  Now we’re off to go to a Blackhawks game.  We’ve never been to one and Ben got tickets at work so I think we’re off to a fun day!
