Yesterday was the last day for my exams for this semester , so since morning I was all excited thinking that this is it after this paper I would not need to study for 1 month at least :D  . I had gone to the examination center at ten in the morning thats when I learned that the server was down so we had to wait. And so I waited and waited , finally I had my exam at 4:30 in the evening....... all my excitement had died down by then and I was tired and hungry   :( .  I was so tired that I didn't feel like getting down and packing food coz then getting a transportation to my house would be another big struggle , so cooking something at home seemed to be a better option. 

People you know me would right-away tell you that I enjoy having good salads. And I make one every weekend , don't really know why I have not posted any of my salad ideas so far but as the saying goes better late then never, so sharing with you the Potato & Egg Salad I had this Friday after all the waiting.

I have shared the salad with Favorite Things Friday - No. 13 hosted by Kristi , FoodTripFriday#100 in Food Trip Friday  and  Fun w/ Food Friday Linky Party in Paisley Passions
