Egg Salad Sandwich

Around 1500, everyone starts to whine about being hungry.  At first, I was like, “Hungry?  But you haven’t done anything all day.”  Anyway, they wanna eat, probably due more to boredom than hunger.

I usually make them simple sandwiches.


The egg salad sandwich is not a simple sandwich.  First, it takes a lot of eggs – 8 eggs for 4 sandwiches.  Also, it takes a lot of effort to boil the eggs, then peel them, then mince them, then season them.  Finally, it takes a lot of time, as warm egg salad is kind icky – boiled eggs are warm – thus requiring refrigeration for a few hours before serving, so everything needs to be prepared in the morning to be ready by mid-afternoon.

IZ: “This is gross.”  I was tempted to smash the sandwich in his ungrateful face.
