Today is Sunday and it's my cooking day. My man is down south riding round in circles for the Cyclo Sportif ad I am at home, enjoying the quiet, except for when I've been buzzing chocolate ice cream 'custard' in my new ice cream maker! Yes, today is a lazy shuffle round the kitchen day.
It is accompanied by simple food like this easy egg & chicken salad. It's high in protein so I won't need to nibble at my baking endeavors (but I will anyway), low in fat (to make p for the nibbling) and simply scrummy, oh, and it's gluten free - of course!
So, relax, have a cuppa read a magazine or go bake a cake after you've put a few eggs on to boil and make this easy peasy egg & chicken salad.
