Easy Egg Salad Sandwich Stuffing (Tuna, Salmon, or Chicken!)

Easy Egg Salad Sandwich Stuffing (Tuna, Salmon, or Chicken!)

We all have our family traditions.  And traditions are the stuff of childhood memories and the center of every holiday gathering, no?  So when it comes to traditional recipes within the family, there are certain ones that you just know are going to stick around.  You know, for better or worse.

 

I love my mom’s traditional New Year’s Lemon Bundt Cake.  That one is for the better!  I swear I’ll never get sick of seeing that one come around. 

My grandma also has this adorable tradition of bringing olives and sweet gherkins (little pickles) to every holiday.  That one is a good one in my book – just because it’s a very my-grandma thing and, of course, brings back all kinds of childhood memories.

Good moment we had, there. 

Now I can segue into this other crazy fact about three years.  Today my husband and I are celebrating our third wedding anniversary.  Whoaaa… mind blown.  Three years seems like a long time!  Even longer when you consider we’ve actually been a couple for FIVE years now.

Chicken Pasta with Acorn Squash + Arugula

I must say, simple and delicious are two things I like in a recipe.  Bonus points if it looks good to me – extra bonus points if it makes the rest of the family want to eat it up.  And, call me crazy, but I also expect a good recipe to have some healthy virtues!

Does that sound like too much to ask?

Go get your farmer’s market shopping on, people – and stock up on some squash!  If you haven’t made much besides jack-o-lanterns out of winter squash before, I suggest you try it out.  No… not next year – right now!
