Hi Carra - Let me know what you think of the egg salad.  It's my sister's recipe.

Hi Kwee - My sister comes up with really great recipes.  It's in her blood, I think.  She's also the one with the culinary background.  I'm a "pinch of this and splash of that" kind of gal.  Thanks for your response.

Ha!  That's funny!  We didn't do any Easter Eggs (no little ones), but yesterday I DID have a hankering for some egg salad!  Yup, lunch!  :)

How funny, Karen.  You're not the first person to tell me that.  So, how was the egg salad?
