Happy Monday fellow peaches! How was your Easter weekend? I hope wonderful. We spent the day with family and of course lots of food. We didn't do a big dinner but opted for a more casual menu of pimento cheese and chicken salad instead. Oh. And deviled eggs. Lots of them!
For the early morning services, I sported a dress in the "it" shade of 2012. Unfortunately, I was also wearing some dark circles under my eyes after being up with a teething toddler from 2:00 to 3:00 AM. C'est la vie!
The boys were all smiles with their Easter baskets which were filled with bubbles, Legos, new Star Wars thermoses and other fun toys.
My aunt brought them these candy terrarium in Mason Jars. My pictures don't do them justice but they were filled with chocolate covered raisins, green M & Ms and green jelly beans to simulate grass. Then she added colored Mike and Ike candies for garden veggies. Last but not least, the chocolate bunny! Cute, huh?
While the guys were glued to the Masters, we ladies entertained all the kids with a game of croquet and some wiffle ball outside. It was perfect weather here in Georgia!
We also dyed some eggs with the older kids while Jett was napping. The colors are always so inspiring!
I spent Saturday evening preparing the deviled eggs and after spending way too much time peeling them, I referred to Pinterest for some helpful hints! (Yes, I'm slightly addicted.)
I quickly began boiling a second batch and added 2 tbsp. of vegetable oil and some salt. After removing them from the boiling water, I placed them in an ice bath. After five minutes, I peeled. See the difference? No dents and much easier to peel! I've yet to determine whether it was the oil or the ice bath that solved my dilemma. Do any of you have a tried and true trick to peeling boiled eggs? Please share!!!
