Week 64 Saturday (4/4/15)

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Basic Deviled Eggs        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays

I figured out that there are 98 calories per one whole egg serving, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I love deviled eggs.  It is truly a shame that I only eat them at someone else’s house on a holiday.  Why don’t I think of making a few on any given weekday?  It only takes a few minutes to make them.  These are just what I expected – basic deviled eggs, just like I have always had in the past. They were very good.

Here are the ingredients I used to make this recipe.

I was pretty messy with the paprika, oops!
They sure tasted good, though.

Random Reflections

         Today, while I was talking to my Mom, I realized that I have exactly two months to go before I officially retire. It was such a strange feeling to say that aloud. This all started to become real when they scheduled the retirement dinner, and asked for an interview. I just let it go, and continued to enjoy every remaining day.  People frequently ask me how many days I have left, and honestly I haven’t had a clue. I will not officially begin counting until I have two weeks left to go. I want to stay focused on the kids and enjoying my time left, and not focus on the days until I am finished.
I have to say that knowing it is only two months was a surprise.

Helpful Home Hints

         I have been working hard in the basement to purge, organize and repack. The basement has been so full of school items that is wasn’t too bad to begin this task. While I am working down there I also check the section that I am working in for leaks.  I am so fortunate to say that the basement is dry and not moist. I had my sump pump and back-up replaced two years ago, so the basement is safe, sound, and dry.  When was the last time you checked your basement for moisture?  If you get a leak, seal it immediately or you could have a disaster as the spring rains come!
