Egg Salad

I have been CRAVING egg salad for the last.... probably 3 months. Odd, I know. We went to Tulsa after Christmas and Effie had Egg Salad at Queenies and ever since then, I've wanted it :) Weird!
So, on Sunday, I made some and I am sad to say that I finished it a few minutes ago. This means that I ate way too much of it in two days!!
Here is the recipe:
8 eggs
1/2 C Mayo, more or less
1/2 C Dijon Mustard
Salt/Pepper to taste
Dash of Paprika
Half of a Red Onion-- Diced fine
3 sticks of celery-- Diced fine
Scoop of relish
Put the eggs in a pot, pour cold water over them and bring to a boil. Boil for about 12 minutes. Run cold water over them and peel. Chop up the eggs and mash them with a fork. Mix with all other ingredients and refrigerate. Serve alone or on toast. It is even better the next day! Enjoy!
Side Note: I am definitely not pregnant... but I have been craving the weirdest things lately! Earlier while I was working on my computer, I thought to myself... I am going to eat the rest of the egg salad, and I wanted peanut butter and red wine at the same time... Is that normal???? Don't think so. But, what did I do?? I had the rest of my salad, ate a scoop of peanut butter and enjoyed some red wine. Ahh.. nothing like satisfying a craving, regardless of what it is :)
Hope you all are having a wonderful week!!

As your Momma, I am concerned about these BIZARRE food cravings!!! When you are pregnant someday, what in the world will you crave then??????
Love you!

Hey, you don't have to be pregnant to have cravings. I have been craving those powdered sugar donuts since I went to a friend's and had one. Old school! You will probably eat salads and plain stuff when you are pregnant. Who knows!

Queenies in Tulsa does not have red onion, celery or pickle relish that I can find. I"m eating some as I write. She uses the green parts of green onions. Keep trying as I would love her recipe. Peggy
