This past weekend my boyfriend and I had a successful two-day yard sale in our front yard. It was hot and sweaty and I am still suffering from my grass allergies but I am glad we did it. We had all kinds of help from my parents on the the first day, my mom was recruited and was gently forced to stay and keep me safe. The second day Ben’s Mom and brother came and helped us out all day .
This yard sale was a little bittersweet because I sold/donated ALL of the inventory from my now shuttered online thrift store: Notnu. It was a little sad to see my carefully curated store selection go in a fire sale but it was also nice to move forward and free up all that space.
She’s a terrible negotiator.
All the unsold clothes are being donated to Goodwill, Dress For Success, and My Freind’s Place, check them out to see the good work they are doing. Also, consider doing some research about what kind of donations your local shelters and non-profits need instead of just dumping your good stuff off at a for profit thrift store or one of those Dare bins that usually just send the stuff to rag, the landfill or overseas.
There are a few things that I love in this world two of which are hard boiled eggs and avocados…so when I found the recipe to make avocado egg salad I knew it was love at first taste. I could eat this stuff for days…if you like egg salad and avocados I INSIST that you try this out…I promise you won’t be disappointed.
You will need:
5 hard boiled eggs
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon of mustard
salt and pepper to taste
cayenne pepper to taste
a large bowl
about 10 minutes
(this is a gif…hopefully it is moving for you)
In a large bowl:
Step 1. Peel the eggs and slice into pieces.
Step 2. Pit, peel and cut avocado into pieces.
(Save the pits if you plan on saving some for later)
Step 3. Add the yogurt.
Step 4. Add the mustard.
Step 5. Add salt, pepper and cayenne to taste.
Step 6. Mash up with a fork until desired consistency.
Step 7. Eat it all.
Makes about 3 large servings.
As avocados tend to turn brown when exposed to air your egg salad will start to brown over a couple of hours (if it lasts that long). If you want to store leftovers (why do you have leftovers) then put the pits back into the bowl, cover and then put into the fridge…it should last about a day and a half.
