A nice simple egg salad lunch

It started out as a ‘what have we got left’ type of lunch and turned into a delicious, colourful and very satisfying lunch for two.

Leftover ingredients:

5 hard boiled eggs (originally destined for sandwiches but ran out of bread)
Part of an iceberg lettuce (great for chopping up)
1/2 a carrot (thinly sliced)
Red cabbage leftovers (raw and sliced)
The bottom of a jar of mayonnaise that needed using up due to date
A sprinkle of smoked paprika (store cupboard staple)

Method: slice eggs, arrange chopped salad and eggs on plate. Put mayonnaise wherever you see fit and sprinkle generously with smoked paprika.

Sit down and enjoy at your leisure.

And we did.  The plates got cleared and our tummies were very satisfied.

What a work of art!

Note to self: need to restock on eggs, mayo and salad ingredients.

Excited to say I’ve just joined The Knitting Network

It’s simply years since I got my needles out and did some serious knitting.  I’ve just joined The Knitting Network which has renewed my passion.

Perhaps today’s weather doesn’t suit wrestling with wool but pretty soon the nights will start to draw in and I’ll be glad of the activity.

I’ve signed up so that if someone clicks to the Knitting Network site via the knitting network SHOP NOW banner I get the kudos and hopefully buys something then I get a small commission as well.

So – if you’re a closet (or very open) knitter and crafter then you might find some goodies to excite you as well.

Happy Knitting – ju x
