This passed weekend, I attended another great event hosted by Clarise Hicks of Creative Adventures Event Services.  The Queen Enhancement Event was created to enhance the women in the community and to build relationships of women owned businesses in the Central Virginia area.  To see an earlier post of the first event, click link:

The highlight of the event was the feature of a new R&B/Soul/Pop Artist, Tiffany Renee.  Tiffany Wowed the audience with her beautiful voice covering Alicia Keys' Superwoman.  You can listen to this beautiful  songbird by clicking link below:

There were many vendors at the event ( Forgive me for not mentioning names.  I failed to ask everyone's name so to be fair, I'm choosing to not mention anyone's):  

Service Production and Management Organization
Author & Workshop Facilitator
Independent Brand Partner for Nerium
Female Empowerment Educator
Life Coaching
Photographer for Photo Shoot
DJ provided us with wonderful music
Independent Jewelery Retailers
Independent Home Crafted Body Scrub Retailer

The event was successful informing women of different aspects of business and providing them with network connections to partner with other businesses.  Looking forward to the next event in May.

Much love,

Egg Salad Sandwich

Today for lunch, I was craving an Egg Salad Sandwich really bad.  One of my first memories of having one was with my Paternal Grandparents.  They had great pleasure fixing me something to eat.  Although I was the 2nd oldest Grandchild, I was also the smallest of everyone.

My Grandparents often encouraged me to eat more (although I ate more than some of the grown ups) because most country folks believed you weren't pretty unless you were fat.  At least that's what they used to tell me.  If only they were able to see when I hit 220lbs.  So glad I lost most of it. 

Now for the recipe:

2 eggs
Chopped onion(optional)                                          
Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Splash of lemon juice (optional)
White pepper (optional)

After boiling eggs, separate cooked yoke from eggs. Put into mixing bowl.  Mash egg yolks until fine in texture (or until yolk no longer looks whole, but crumbly).  Dice egg whites into small pieces.  Add into bowl.  Add remaining ingredients of choice.  Add and mix according to the texture that suits you (I prefer mine a little thick).

Put on bread of choice and enjoy.

Much love,
