On the menu....

Have you had a good Saturday?  We managed to fill our day with various curbside pickup outings and trying to keep up with the Kentucky Derby.  It was really strange to see Churchill Downs with no one in the stands.

Before we started on the day, there was a “Saturday special” for breakfast.

This is Avocado Egg Salad on Country Wheat Toast!  First time for me to make this egg salad version, and I like it!

On the menu for tomorrow....Pressure Cooker Risotto with Shrimp and Herbs (Martha Stewart) and peas with mushrooms.  Of course, there will be dessert.:-) 

I’ll be back on Monday for a follow up on Sunday lunch.  

Be safe and stay well!


  1. Well, Sister, I also like avocadoes, and I think that salad sounds superb! Of course, I'm always interested in desserts! Stay safe, stay well, stay blessed! Love you!

  2. Hello Nellie. You are always making delicious things! Oh my, that peach pound cake must have been luscious. Dear Nellie, thank you SO MUCH for your many visits to Writing Straight from the Heart. Your visits and comments always make me happy.

  3. I love avocado, I sometimes like egg, but can't quite get the hang of them together. Love the idea of a shrimp risotto though, and always yes to a pudding. I don't think I ever met a pudding that I didn't like!

  4. For the first time ever, I didn't watch it. I couldn't stand the thought of no one in the stands.
    Your food is always so yummy. We had a BBQ yesterday with all of our kids that live here. It was so hot that I made a Smores slab pie. It was a hit too. I can't figure out why its so easy to cook for 10 adults and so hard for two. :)
    Have a lovely day.

  5. Not a fan of avocados or egg salad so I'll have to pass on the sandwich.
    Our Sat was an outside work day and we had beautiful weather for it.

  6. We missed the Kentucky Derby, Nellie. I can't imagine no one in the stands! Unfortunately I'm not a fan of avocados, but I do love egg salad.
