Hello, Charlotte. Good to be back. Very good.
I actually managed to finagle my way onto an earlier flight and got home three and a half hours earlier than expected, which was awesome! This meant I had enough time to dash to the clinic and help out, checking out a few patients.
And once the Hus was done with his work, we came home, collapsed on the couch, and made mashed potatoes. We discussed working on Halloween costumes but that errand quickly fell to the wayside. Instead, we just zoned out. Like a mini weekend on a Wednesday afternoon. So nice.
At some point – I made this scrumptious dinner. We had seen an infomercial for a device that lets you hard-boil eggs without having to peel them and instantly both craved an egg salad sandwich. But yes – I actually had to peel the eggs.
For two servings, I hard-boiled five eggs, let them cool, and chopped them into small bites. Then, I combined the eggs with about 1/4 cup vegan mayo, a tablespoon or two of Dijon mustard, cherry tomatoes, and raw broccoli.
So much better than sticky deli egg salad. Sooooo much better.
Eaten on the porch. Must enjoy this lovely weather while it lasts!
We made an effort to take the pooches on a long walk but ended up just going to a nearby gas station and buying a bunch of lotto tickets. The North Carolina Powerball is up to $173 million. The classic “What would you do if we won the jackpot?” conversation ensued. Then we spent 30 minutes looking at $3,000,000 Charlotte homes on real estate websites while eating teacups of ice cream. Keepin’ my fingers crossed for tonight’s draw!
A girl can dream, right?
