Your Lie in April (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso) is a heartwarming, and heart wrenching series. It tells the story of Kousei Arima and how his meeting with Kaori Miyazono changes his life. Both are musicians and the musical scenes in this anime are absolutely beautiful and touching. It is a great anime to watch with people who haven't watched a lot or any anime before. Classical music fans will also find a lot to love in this anime a well. I highly recommend it to anyone!
As I mentioned before, Kousei is a musician, a pianist. While waiting for his performance in a competition, he bonds with his peers over his favorite egg sandwich. As Kousei is very closed off and reluctant to make friends, his offering of the sandwich is a big turning point for his character.
He also gushes over the sandwich itself. He describes it as using farm fresh eggs, which are always better if you can get ahold of them. He also says its light on mayo and salt, bringing out the sweetness and true taste of the egg. While his sandwich doesnt have ham, his friend mentions how good it would be with it. This sounded really good to me, so I made it that way! So lets make this tasty sandwich!
EGG SALAD SANDWICH
Makes: 3 sandwiches
sliced bread (preferably white, but others are fine too)
sliced deli ham (optional)
1. Place eggs in a pot with just enough water to cover the tops. Boil on high for 20 minutes. This will give you a well done yolk.
2. When the eggs are done boiling, carefully drain the hot water. Fill the pot with cold water and let the eggs cool down.
3. Peel your eggs. Dice them into small piece. They don't have to be perfect so a rough chop is perfectly fine.
4. Put your diced eggs in a bowl big enough for mixing. Add some salt and a pinch or two of salt. Start with a spoonful of mayonnaise. Mix together thoroughly until the yolk is creamy.
5. Taste the egg mixture. Depending on your taste, you may want to add more mayonnaise, salt or pepper. Make it to your taste.
6. Once you get the flavor where you want, spread on three pieces of bread. Place a slice of ham on top, if you desire. Cover with another piece of bread.
7. Slice in half. For a more authentic Japanese sandwich, slice off the crusts.
