As May comes to a close, it’s really starting to settle in that I’m moving in a month. I am SO excited, more happy than not happy, to be sure, but June is beginning to look like it’s going to be, quite frankly, a shit show.

Egg Salad Sandwiches with Fresh Herbs

For example, on June 24th everything from my apartment is being moved to British Columbia. This does not include me.

Get this: from the 24th to the 30th of June I still have to go to work every day and then come home to an empty apartment without a couch, bed, any kitchen appliances, the internet, a fridge, a stove…SERIOUSLY. This is real life.

I could go on and on, but you get it – I’ll be sleeping on a camping mattress on the floor…FOR SIX NIGHTS!!!!! So basically, if you happened to walk by my apartment, I would be the squatter living on the floor that could offer you literally nothing besides a high five and a (plastic) glass of tap water.

I toyed with not telling anyone, or writing about this hilarious situation on this blog, but really, who cares! The whole thing is funny as hell and this blog serves as a diary for me beyond anything else.

So yeah, I currently live in a beautiful Montreal apartment and before I move into my new house in B.C., I have to be a bit of a weirdo for 6 days. Or alternatively, you could consider it being maximizing a minimalist lifestyle.

The food that I’ll be making and blogging about until September will not be overly different from what I’ve made before. I have to use up stuff from my cupboards and freezer from now until the end of June, but it’s all delicious. I am a firm believer that no matter where you are or live, you should try your best to eat deliciously!

Egg Salad Sandwiches with Fresh Herbs

This sandwich came about this past weekend when I was using up some herbs from a recent herby salad that I made. It is SO delicious and packs absolutely perfectly for lunches. I highly recommend it!

    Never thought of the herbs so I will try this as I now what you make is always delicious. Those 6 days and nights will surely give you and Paul a new perspective of life others have to endure and definitely make you both grateful for all that you do have. Life sure has its ups and downs. Excited for the both of you as you move onto experience new adventures.

    PS these sandwiches sound delicious!

      I can’t tell you how happy that makes me feel!! I COULD get a hotel, but I definitely don’t need to. It’s like a really weird form of camping…

  7. Snap! At least it has been a good year up until now hey? AND you can totally make the most out of the situation like Tom Hanks at the airport 🙂
    Just think of the end result, a house, your loved ones, and loads more food to be made in a brand new kitchen! 😀
    I love egg salad, and this one sounds heavenly! I love it when it is paired with some leaves for a bit of crunch, yum! x

    • katrina says:

      TOTALLY! I’m not like, overly worried or anything, but it’s definitely a hilarious situation. I’ll definitely make the best of it!

  8. #squatterlife mmm.. this sounds like the best egg salad sandwich ever!
    I get cravings for a sandwich with sliced hard boiled egg, grated carrot, grated cheese and mayo. It’s so good that I tell people about it, often. Hehe.

    • katrina says:

      CHEESE TOO?!? That does sound like a dream!! You should blog about it…sandwiches are totally underrated!

  9. Oh man, you poor squatter! Except not really, but still! I’m not jealous of sleeping on a camp bed, but I am super jealous of this sandwich, because all those beautiful herbs is what every other egg salad I’ve had has been missing.

  10. It sounds like your move will be quite the adventure! I don’t know what kind of camp bed you have, but all the ones I’ve slept on where not the most comfortable things ever…. so good luck girl! 😉

  11. Different is good! And wow, moving in a month, that sounds like an adventure. I love egg salad sandwich, it’s easy to make and delicious 🙂 More like this one please 😀
