I made this easy salad the other day not because I wanted to cook a vegetarian dish, nor because I was too lazy to make anything complicated – but because I was missing my mom. A lot. I haven’t been feeling well lately (I’m going to see a doctor tomorrow) and I really need my mom: I miss her touch, her comforting warmth, her unique way of caressing me and of helping me to feel better. She is in Romania at the moment and she’ll fly back to Chicago in early July. We’ve got everything planned for a wonderful summer vacation after she gets here. Less than two months to go, and time can’t seem to go fast enough.
If someone asks me for a quick appetizer idea for a New Year’s celebration party, I always mention deviled eggs. They are very quick and easy to make, and they do not require expensive or hard to find ingredients. All you need is a carton (or two) of eggs in your fridge, some fresh herbs, and a bit a patience.
