My mom and I went to a church ladies' guild meeting to hear a featured speaker, Ms. Cheap from the local Tennessean newspaper. The theme for the refreshments at the meeting was teatime: half the folks brought finger sandwiches, and half brought cookies.
I wanted to bring something we could prep ahead, so I made a big bowl of egg salad the night before, and picked out a loaf of marbled wheat bread. To spruce up my basic egg salad, I added a bit of ground mustard, ground nutmeg, and garlic powder to the cheddar cheese, egg whites, and mayo. They were pretty and delish!
Ms. Cheap proved to be an entertaining speaker with a wealth of local tips on bargains, shopping, and entertaining in my folks' new town. Check out her blog for helpful info regardless of your location.
