Crate and Barrel, Ferrari’s, and the perfect egg

09 Jul

To start off my post I’ll give my recipe, and then the fun stuff at the end. 😉
Yesterday I went to get my hair done near Bridgeport Village. (Which is the elite/ritzy mall….but also has great GF/DF food!) After my appointment I headed over to Crate & Barrel to just look around and ask about something I’ve been wanting for a long time! Unfortunately the smaller (and cheaper) size does not do what I am looking for… So I kept walking. I found a mini spatula and a nifty egg timer. Big spender, I know. 😉
I am HORRIBLE at cooking a hard boiled egg, it’s either gel in the yolk or green from killing it. So the egg timer is a hopeful.

I tried it this morning and it worked!! I like a hard yolk so this was perfect. 🙂

Today for lunch I decided to make an egg salad sandwich. It’s been since I was a kid since I’ve had one! I had to look up how to make it it’s been so long. :-p Here’s my version of it.

Egg Salad Sandwich
• 4 slices Gluten Free Bread (they are small….so if you are hungry, it takes 2 to make a thing go right!)
• 4 hard boiled eggs
• miracle whip (or mayo if you are a hater of the tangy zip)
• 1 small shallot, peeled & diced
• fresh chives, chopped
• Fresh spinach
• dash of Trader Joes “21 season salute”
• dash of Trader Joes Smoked Paprika
• Salt & Pepper to taste

How To:
Toast bread.
Wash spinach & chives then pat dry.
Peel and clean eggs, mash mash mash.
Add spices, shallots, chives, stir stir stir.
Add mayo like substance, stir stir stir.
Add some mayo to bread, lay down a layer of spinach, add Egg Salad on top.
Complete sandwich.
Eat eat eat! Molt, expand, repeat!
I actually had enough left over for one more sandwich, so it could serve 3 people. 🙂


Ok now for the fun stuff. Here are a few things that are WAYYYY outta my price range, but very petty. 😀










So now you are probably wondering where the Ferrari comes in… I happened to park next to it at Crate & Barrel. I decided to take pictures when I was leaving so security wouldn’t cart me away before I got a bite to eat. 😉


My red car is in the background. Don’t they look sooo much alike?!? His rims are way better…and the horse emblem got left off when they assembled my car too. Lol! :-p
Happy Summer!! 😀
