It may look like guacamole. But it's actually egg salad, with avocado, and other stuff, but primarily creamy, dreamy avocado. Now I know I usually do not post about food on Wednesdays, but this egg salad is too good to keep to myself.
I am not presuming you don't know how to make egg salad, as I am sure you make a delicious egg salad. Instead, I am hoping to inspire you to think outside of the traditional, hum drum egg salad box. Although I did not use a recipe, my inspiration for the avocado egg salad came from a post a read from the Pioneer Woman a while back. Why it has taken me this long to jump on the avocado egg salad train is beyond me. I tend to be a little slow on the trends.
So here is my not really a recipe, recipe for avocado egg salad:
Avocado Egg Salad
7 eggs, boiled and chopped
2 avocados, diced
1 tbsp. mayonnaise (I will probably omit this next time; you really do not need it)
3-4 tbsp. sweet relish
4 tbsp. Dijon mustard
Pinch of cayenne
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix ingredients together and eat. As you can see, it's too simple to qualify as a recipe. It's really just an idea; albiet a very good idea. Experiment with the ingredients. Next time I might try using fresh dill weed and dill pickles instead of the sweet relish and cayenne. You could also use one less avocado for thicker, chunkier egg salad.
Oh, and I did work out today. Scott tried something a little different and gave me one big circuit to do as many rounds as possible in 40 minutes. It looked like this:
1. Circuit: AMRAP in 40 minutes, one minute rest between each round (no rest between sets):
- Turkish Get-ups with a 40 lbs. sand bag; one per side
- Bench press 85 lbs. x 5
- Lunges 15 lb. kettle bell in each hand x 6 per leg
- Single arm rows 25 lbs. x 8 per arm
- L sit-ups (Glute Ham Situps) x 10
- Landmines x 12 per side
- Prowler low handles 15 yards x 2
I forgot my camera, and I won't bombard you with grainy iPhone pictures. However, I will share one picture from the end of the workout when I was completely spent and could barely move or breathe...
This didn't help.
