I’ll wait till he’s back in SoCal to congratulate him in person since we’re totally friends he just doesn’t know.

It was already such a beautiful, inspiring day but this just took my runner pride over the top!

 

I came home with a few goodies from my mom’s Easter dinner. This loot included awesome gum from the Easter bunny…

…hard-boiled eggs and avocados (my mom has a tree).

I am not opposed to mayonnaise on any level…

But I am extremely partial to avocado so I decided to swap out mayo for avocado and make egg salad with avocado for dinner. Easy Meatless Monday FTW.

Avocado Egg Salad:

  • 4 hard-boiled eggs (I used 2 whole eggs and 2 whites)
  • 1/2 cup smashed avocado
  • to taste: salt, pepper, paprika, garlic salt

Directions: Smash. Eat. Repeat.

    Yummm, sounds good! Thanks for the idea.
    Tonight we had broiled tilapia (lots of it) with kale and mushrooms sautéed in garlic & walnut oil. Different from olive oil really good!
    Big congrats to Meb. I totally hope he gets to meet you.

    We had leftover meatloaf with cauliflower mashed potatoes! Now about to crack open a fresh container of coconut ice cream! Yum yum! That avocado egg salad looks delicious! I’ll have to give it a shot this week!

    Whoops! As Kara Goucher pointed out on her twitter today, Meb was the first American to win since 1985, when American Lisa Larsen Weidenbach won. So Meb was the first American man to win since 1983. Can’t forget those females! 😛

    Egg salad with avocado? I never would have thought of that. But both are foods that I love.
    I did have a tuna and avocado sandwich the other day and I thought it was pretty great.

    IF ONLY my fiance like avacado!! I think this looks delish. I also had eggs last night… just of the scrambled variety :)

    This is the second time I’ve seen egg salad with avocado in two days, so it must be kismet! I planned on doing this last night, but my avocado wasn’t ripe yet. Instead, I left it on the counter overnight and then chopped some up to put in my regular egg salad for lunch today. Maybe a little overkill with the mayo still in there, but it’s pretty tasty!
