Happy Friday, I hope you are having a wonderful week! We had a gigantic snow storm here which meant another snow day for the kids. I am starting to wonder if they will be out of school by the 4th of July with all these missed days. Oh well, that is Maine Life for sure! I have been trying to keep up with all my workouts, which has meant spending a lot of time on the treadmill and bike trainer due to all of the ice and snow. On Tuesday I did a Drills & Hills workout on the ‘mill and I was starving afterward! So, in honor of my self-proclaimed Toast Tuesday, I decided to make something decadent to eat on toast afterward. After rummaging through the fridge, I found all of the ingredients to make this delicious Nicoise Salad on Pumpernickel Toast.
Nicoise Salad on Pumpernickel Toast
I have been a long time fan of Nicoise Salad, as I love the combination of flavors. I also really enjoy all varieties of olives, so any time I see a recipe calling for them I have to try it! One thing that made this meal so quick and easy to make was already having hard boiled eggs in the refrigerator! I discovered the Great Day Farms Hard Boiled Eggs in the deli section at Walmart and they are so convenient to use in any recipe, so I always keep some on hand! I also enjoy eating the eggs by themselves, as they are an excellent source of protein.
- 1/2 Cup of Tuna
- 1 tsp Dijon Mustard

Toast Tuesday Fun!
As I mentioned above, the kids had a snow day, so I had a little fun making them breakfast that day. Check out these cute owl toasts I made for them! My daughter loves avocado so I spread some on toast for her then topped it with 2 slices of hard boiled eggs and green peas for the eyes. I used a cherry tomato for the nose and added some beet slices on top for a tuft of hair. For my son’s toast, I used the sliced eggs and some sliced black olives for the eyes. I added a pickle for the nose and some sweet potato noodles for the hair. They definitely got a kick out of these and enjoyed eating them too!
