We have been having a bizarre winter. We have been going from cold to warm so often and sometimes on the same day. It has been the coldest winter I have experienced. We got a low of 14C a few nights. Our bodies are so acclimated to the Bermuda weather that it felt like we were freezing. If you are on the Eastern coast in America I feel for you with all that snow.
Some days are warm enough to enjoy a salad. I decide what to eat based on whether the sun is out or not. Same goes with my mood, if the sun is out I am happy. Cloudy and rainy days are just blah!
Sunday was mostly cloudy and windy but we got some sunshine around lunch time. I celebrated with a salad for lunch.
We had Cobb Salad.
I like making cobb salad because it so filling. I had added cooked chicken, onion, avocado, tomatoes, boiled eggs and cucumbers on top of a bed of romaine lettuce.
Speaking of boiled eggs, did you guys see the episode on Worst Cooks where they were teaching the contestants how to boil eggs. It occurred to me then that sometimes when I write a recipe I assume that because something is simple then most people would know how to. To boil an egg, add an egg to a saucepan with cold water. Bring to boil, the longer you boil the harder the yolk. To avoid getting a green egg, you need to shock the egg in freezing water immediately after removing from heat. It will stop the egg from further cooking Ingredients Instructions
