Week 65 Monday (4/6/15)

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Deviled Eggs with Smoked Salmon
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
                  Pages:  117    Copyright:  2013  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 100 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 have never had deviled eggs with smoked salmon. Considering that I don’t care for smoked salmon, I was surprised that I enjoyed them. The recipe also called for capers.  I had heard of capers, but never tasted them.  They didn’t have a lot of flavor, but they were salty and I really liked that a lot. I will definitely cook with them again.

First, I set out my ingredients.

I love those little capers

The salmon was not overwhelming and good.

Random Reflections - Bucket List #53

         I don’t ever want to become so complacent that I stop learning new skills. Based on past practices, I can’t imagine that happening, but I need to continue to stretch myself and continue to be a lifelong learner.  It doesn’t matter in what area. I just want to push myself to grow as an individual.
