Well, it’s Monday! Yay!
I never thought I would be excited about Monday. My boys just finished a week of spring break. Having them home isn’t hard or anything but having all the play dates, sleepovers and messes all over the house is the hardest.
My twelve year old is starting to get more into hanging out with his friends all the time. It’s crazy to me how time flies. I remember being twelve and it doesn’t seem that long ago! How in the world do I have a twelve year old?!
My nine year old and I both spoke in our church yesterday. In my church, everything is voluntary so nobody gets paid to have jobs aka callings. We don’t have a pastor or anything like that but instead, a couple people are asked ahead of time to speak in the first meeting.
I was a bit stressed about it because I procrastinated writing my talk out. I sort of thought I didn’t like public speaking (even though I was/am an actress…that’s a whole other post in itself, ha!) but once I got up and started speaking, I kinda got into it and really enjoyed it! Someone even came up to my husband after, who is new to our church, and asked if I was in marketing. Ha! 😉
My son spoke to the young children his age in primary and did SO WELL. I was really proud of him!
So last week was hellacious but this week is looking so much better.
I’m so excited for all the Easter parties and things happening this week! We have a fun little playgroup that’s doing an Easter egg hunt on Wednesday and then we’ll decorate eggs and stuff on Saturday. I love Easter! Just thinking about buying Easter basket goodies is making me excited!
One thing that my mom used to make all the time while I was growing up, not just on Easter but on other special occasions too, are these deviled eggs. In fact, it’s sort of funny how all the grandkids will ask her to make deviled eggs for whatever get together they’re having. She’s famous for them. 😉
The recipe is ridiculously easy. The only hard part is boiling the eggs, which is not hard at all. I’ve tried so many other deviled eggs recipes and I always end up not liking them. Personally, I think when people change the basic recipe, they’re not as good.
This is the creamy, simple, delicious recipe that deviled eggs should be!
- 6 hard-cooked eggs
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. dry mustard
- ¼ tsp. pepper
- 3 Tbsp. light mayonnaise
- paprika, for serving
- Hard boil your eggs and rinse with cool water.
- When cooled, peel off shells and cut each egg in half. Put each egg yolk half in a food processor. Mix in salt, mustard, pepper and mayonnaise.
- Fill eggs with with creamy yolk mixture. Sprinkle with paprika. Serve and devour!
