The weather dictates what we do, every day. You’re always trying to stay one step ahead of it.
We don’t know what normal is anymore.
This was said by Arlyn Schipper, an Iowa farmer, in response to the increased numbers of droughts, floods, storms, and heat waves in this country. If you still have any doubt that climate change is real, ask an American farmer.
If you’re in a hurry, try making this egg salad. It’s very good, and one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever followed. All you need to do is mix up the following ingredients in a bowl:
6 large hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup prepared salsa
1 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tsps. lemon or lime juice
1 tsp. ground cumin
Minced sweet white onion to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: minced jalapeno to taste
The result is delicious and healthy. It certainly beats fast food any day.
