In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

The Simple Things In Life

The other day, my mother mentioned she hadn't had deviled eggs in a long time. I placed the thought on the back shelf and didn't think more about it.

Today, while visiting, I snitched a cookie from the cookie jar, which prompted her to say: "Are you eating a deviled egg?"

So, I'm making some deviled eggs. Come to think of it, I haven't had a deviled egg in a long time, either. I think we'll both enjoy them.

I have to brag that they came out much better than they usually do. I think she will enjoy them.

  1. I'm always up for another deviled egg recipe, if you'd care to share...! ;)

  2. Mine's pretty simple. Tonight I boiled 7 eggs; split the eggs; removed the yokes, which I mashed; added about two tablespoons of real mayonnaise; one tablespoon of mustard; one finely chopped green onion; one finely chopped mini dill pickle; salt and pepper; a dash of garlic powder and mixed the entire mess together. Before I placed the mixture back in the egg halves, I salt and peppered the eggs.

    I'm not real happy with the texture (the filling is not as firm as I like), but damn they're good.

    I know most people boil an entire dozen, but a dozen would be too many.

  3. Sounds devilishly good. I also like a touch of horseradish in mine. Come to think of it, that probably would be good for my head cold...

  4. I put a splash of Lea and Perrins in it. Same with my egg salad recipe.
