I did some lazing around last night, but I also got a couple of things done. I managed to eat dinner that I had made the previous day, and I managed to make egg salad for lunch today. I also got the sink cleared out in preparation for doing the dishes tonight. And this morning, I took the trash and recycling out. I did not, however, spend any time thinking about my priorities.

I'm not sure if I've ever made egg salad. I really liked it when my mom made it, and I think hrafn might have made it once. Nine hard-boiled eggs, some mayonnaise, some minced green onion, some paprika, and some "mustard blend" (mustard seed and wheat flour mix). The little bit I tried as I was making it was very good. Thanks to magid for making some yesterday and thus inspiring me to make some. Two sandwiches went into my bag this morning. Plus I have an avocado and some ketchup at work from yesterday, so I should be pretty much set for food today. And there's enough egg salad left for two sandwiches tomorrow, too.

Here's one thing I can try to do. I can cook something every day. I enjoy cooking, and it helps keep expenses down. So, I haven't cooked anything yet today, and I still have some leftover chicken to eat for dinner tonight, plus the egg salad for lunch tomorrow. This will be the first test, then: cooking something on a week day when I don't need to in order to eat right then. I went shopping over the weekend when my mom was visiting, and I bought salsa ingredients. I think I might make some salsa tonight.

Does anyone know if salsa freezes well? Or, if not, how long it will keep in the refrigerator?

I seriously doubt 've ever made egg salad. It's always seemed like one of those nasty, why-on-god's-green-earth-would-anyone-eat-THAT kind of sandwich fillings. Deviled eggs, now, I might have made.

Fresh salsa might not keep well more than a week in the fridge, but I don't know for sure. And I suspect it would get mushy if you froze it.

Some like it mushy.

I think salsa freezes okay, but I'm not sure. However, if you can pack it into a sealed jelly jar, it'll keep forever in one of those.
