Easy Deviled Eggs

Julie's Easy Deviled EggsHappy Easter everyone! As you’re preparing for fun meals with your families I wanted to share with you my easy deviled egg recipe. Every year I giggle to myself that we make “deviled” eggs for the two holidays that celebrate Jesus Lord and Savior of the Universe. I’m quirky like that. But I like to think Jesus thinks it is a little ironic as well.

My friend Laura explained to me yesterday that her aunt being the good southern woman she was, refused to ever devil her eggs. She was telling me how she “dressed” hers instead. The difference is if you use pickles then your eggs are officially deviled. Well I devil the Hades out of mine.

My recipe is quick and easy. I don’t use vinegar or a ton of ingredients. My philosophy is Easter should be the easiest dinner of all of the the major holidays.

I really want to update everyone on how things are going for us in Estes Park, but that will have to come in the next few posts. Instead today, I’m sharing this…

From the Back Deck April 13, 2014

This is the view from our deck today. I’m not kidding. We now live in a postcard. But even though it is beautiful, I still long for warmer weather. Soon.

So I’m really going to put myself out there and share this with you friends. A little poem I wrote exactly a year ago. Evidently it snowed a year ago in Colorado Springs and I was wishing for spring there as well.

The Thaw. Thoughts on Grief

She was no longer wrestling with the grief, but could sit down with it as a lasting companion and make it a sharer in her thoughts. ~George Eliot

This time of year I refer to as The Thaw. The season when winter is almost behind us, and spring is truly trying to make her debut.
