Perfect Egg Salad-6

Growing up I was an extremely picky eater and there were only a handful of recipes my Mom could make that I would actually eat.  One was my Mom’s egg salad.  Mom would toast up a couple of slices of Wonder bread, yep Wonder bread and heap a huge pile of egg salad in between the toast.  I was a skinny thing {oh back in the day} and she was probably trying to get as many calories in my mouth when I would sit long enough to eat.  I would gobble up those sandwiches as fast as I could, usually eating so fast I would get a stomach ache.

I find it amazing how food brings back very specific memories back to me, where I was when I ate it how I felt.  I can close my eyes and be back in a memory all because of how the food made me feel.

When my hubby asked me if I would make some egg salad, you know who I called, Mom.   When I asked she didn’t have to look it up because she doesn’t have it written down, she just goes from memory.  The way most family recipes are remembered.

Do you have a recipe that you enjoyed as a kid and make for your family now?  What is it, and do you have as vivid memories as I do when you think of enjoying that recipe as a kid?
