This is for you, Ryan…

And this post….I dedicate to my husband.  We’ll call it the FART SANDWICH POST.

Yes…you read that right.  Fart Sandwich.   (A.K.A. Egg Salad Sandwich)

I am working in Memphis this week and Ryan says he’s missing me.  And so I thought, today I will dedicate a this to him…

It all started again last weekend when I found yet another item that reminded me of my childhood.  See that tool in the picture below?  That is the tool my mom always used to chop up eggs for egg salad sandwiches when my sister and I were little.  It has been years since my mom gave it to me to keep…but it seems like just yesterday that she was using it to make us lunch.  We loved those sandwiches…still do.  Fortunately or unfortunately for me, my husband despises these delicious treats.  In fact, as soon as I start making one, he yells from the other room, “Really Robin?!  You’re making Fart Sandwiches?”  Enthusiastically I respond, “Yep!  Want one?”  LOL  I know dang well he wouldn’t take a bite.  There is just something about the smell of eggs…  🙂

This recipe is not extravagant or elegant or even entertaining.  But it is good.  And I promised to share pieces of my “younger years” as I work to put together the album…so here is another piece:


  • 4 eggs, hard-boiled
  • Light Miracle Whip
  • Mustard
  • Lettuce
  • Bread (I use Amana 12 Grain…my Mom uses…WHITE.)

Boil eggs for 15 minutes.  Strain and let cool.

Remove shell and chop eggs.

Add 3/4 Miracle Whip and 1/4 Mustard…enough to be spreadable.  (My Grandma Genrich would have added chopped celery too…but I wasn’t a fan of that. haha)

Spread on bread.  Top with a piece of lettuce and serve with a chilled glass of milk!   Egg Salad…it’s a nice change of pace. 

Still miss me, Buddy?  🙂

Indulge.  In Life.  In Love.  In Food.
