Another year older. 39. *sigh*

I do though take pleasure in the fact that I feel and look better than I did at 29. Woot!
Having a little tea party later for my birthday lunch. Here's one of the dishes I'm serving. Confetti Egg Salad in little "Cucumber Canoes." It's sooooo good and super festive for a birthday celebration.
Shelly's Confetti Egg Salad
4 Hard Cooked Eggs
1/4 of an English Cucumber, diced
1/4 of a Orange Bell Pepper, diced
1/4 cup Black Olives, chopped
4 slices Cooked Bacon, crumbled
1 Green Onion, chopped
2 oz. jar Pimentos, drained
2 Tablespoons Fage Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
Whiz hard boiled eggs till finely chopped in a mini food processor.
Add remaining ingredients and mix till well combined.
Great on it's own, spooned on to slices or scooped out (I use a melon baller) sections of cucumber into "cucumber canoes," or stuffed in tomatoes, or eaten as a wrap.
My beautiful birthday flowers that greeted me this morning...
A birthday is just the first day of another 365 day journey around the sun. Post weight loss surgery I'm enjoying the trip (and I pack much lighter.)
