ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2ND,2019
The moments of our lives may be bright with possibility, dark with fear or sadness, or even plain everyday gray, but God's glory never fades. May God's glory shine into the exciting lights, upsetting darks, and boring grays of your every day.
51 DAYS UNTIL WINTER
55 Days Until CHRISTMAS
Today is National Deviled Egg Day, which is a tradition favorite in both American and French cultures. Deviled eggs are made with hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise. mustard and seasoning and can be served as a side dish, appetizer, or main course.
While deviled eggs originated in ancient Rome, the term deviled didn’t appear un this the 18th century when it was used to describe highly seasoned, fried, or boiled dishes. By the 19th century the word deviled was used to describe hot seasonings in general. Today, not all deviled egg recipes are spicy, but a little cayenne pepper or hot mustard and give them an extra kick.
To celebrate, make your favorite family recipe today!
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
An egg is always an adventure; the next one may be different.
I happen to have pictures of deviled eggs today as I took some to our Hallo’wind’ party the other night. Every one likes them and they are not the hot variety at all, but sprinkled with paprika for garnish.
My container holds 20 so I boil 10 eggs and cool and peel them. Cut them in half and mix the yolks with mayonnaise, mustard, and salt and pepper. then put the mixture in the hollow egg white. And I always sprinkle with paprika for a festive look.They are best served cold.
It’s Saturday and it’s chili out so I’ll be cooking up some soup for the weekend.
