Grandma’s Egg Salad

Introduction

Hello Friends!
I don’t know about yall, but with school back in for my kids it sure seems like from the time they get home to bed time, it just flies by. So having a simple meal that can be made ahead of time really help us to maximize the time we can spend together, riding bikes or playing games.
 I have a 5 and a 7-year-old so game night has become a very big deal. Instead of questions this week, I’m listing games that we play and enjoy as a family. One, Big Bunco was introduced to us from my mother-in-law who played it when my husband and sister-in-law were kids. 
Happy game night!
Hugs, 
Claire Richardson

NOTES:

  • Double the batch and have plenty of leftovers for lunch.
  • Placing the egg salad on toasted bread is delightful as well.

A Story About My Grandmother
As a child I would get stomach aches and can remember my grandmother telling me to lay flat-face down right next to the refrigerator to “cure” my stomach pains. I’m not sure if it was the vibration, but it worked!!
