ceasar salad

This has been my breaking-fast menu for these several days, after a cup of tea. It's deliciously healthy, refreshing, and dead simple :) All you need is a bunch of fresh lettuce, washed, chopped, and patted dry. For the dressing, I used 2 tablespoons of mayo, half a teaspoon of mustard, 1 small garlic chopped finely, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix all together before mixed with the lettuce. Make your own croutons by cutting 2 slices of bread into cubes, then bake with butter in a nonstick pan until golden brown. Serve immediately.

the perfect boiled eggs

Due to the husbands request lately, I have a new routine - boiling eggs. And you know what, it's not as easy as I thought. I tried a few times and never got the exact firmness I wanted. Always to squishy and made me have to boil them again (read: time consuming and ruined the look).  So, when I stumbled upon a post I read here, it was just the answer I needed :D All you need now is a timer and let EggWatchers do all your counting. It's fantastic!
