Imagine this: you make an egg salad sandwich. You mix it with that lovely homemade mayo you made and you mix in one avocado. You put some tender touches of salt, pepper, and paprika. You continue on and toast up some corn tortillas on a pan. Mean while - you cut up a few slices of some peppers, you take out a few slices of some pre-made store bought bacon, cut some chives and lastly, you cut a slice from a juicy tomato. You layer it.

1. tortilla
2. egg salad
3. tomatoes
4. peppers/chives
5. bacon

You top it off with just a dab of ranch dressing. You eat it.


I also used some of it on my hair. Put it on dry - rubbed it all in. Let sit for a bit and showered/shampooed. ; )

Reason I don't make homemade mayo very often.
In my experience homemade mayo will keep longer than you think, especially if you store it in a glass jar. I make it often. So much tastier than the jarred stuff, plus you can customize the flavor to suit what you're using it for.

But if you're looking for a delicious splurge, how about getting some lobster meat and making some end-of-summer lobster rolls? They really benefit from homemade mayo, I think, Actually so does even plain old tuna salad.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
