Meatless Mondays: Egg salad lettuce wraps & white wine pickled vegetables

 So I have this one member of my family who sometimes just wants to eat vegetables.  No, it's not our pet bunny rabbit, and this person shall remain nameless for their own good.  But in an effort to try and get this person to actually read my blog posts, I thought joining in on Meatless Mondays would be a good start.  So I stole this person's dinner idea for this one.  Nope, there's no shame in my game......more
