ThuRsday - Reminder, gReatfulness and Recipe!

Hello everybody! As I mentioned I've been pretty busy, there are some things I just need to nip in the bud here, so hang in there with me as I find the time to "juggle it all" and make time for my blogging! But here I am... trying to keep you updated and bring you something special each time!

So... I wanted to remind you of tomorrow's Coffee Friday! It's going to be gooooood! We do have a special featured blogger that's prepared a delicious treat for all of us! She is creative and ... well... I don't want to give it all away... but you won't want to miss it! I hope I see my "regulars" here and then some new faces too linking-up to our Party!

Also, I wanted to share with you a little quote I found that Oprah Winfrey said; although, if you know me you know I am not an "Oprah" fan... actually I don't even think I've ever watched any of her shows... but anyway... I thought this quote was a great one:

"Be thankful for what you have and you will end up having more. But if you concentrate on what you don't have, you'll never, ever have enough." - Oprah Winfrey

So true! I am just trying to get us in the mood for Thanksgiving and just keep that in mind when that day arrives, Thankfulness is an "on-going" attitude, something that can't just bloom if we never planted and watered it! It's something we must feed every day so it can finally display and reveal itself in the form of fruits that bless those around us! -woah! I guess I was more inspired than I thought-

And now... in the same Thanksgiving spirit... and going through my Thanksgiving Menu I will start to share those recipes with you so you can add to your own menu or just try them whenever you feel like it... Let's start from the beginning, shall we?

Deviled Eggs!

Yes... deviled eggs, are a tradition on hubby's Family Thanksgiving Dinner! Auntie Amy (hubby's auntie) lived in Texas for a long while, so there's always some "Southern Flair" in her kitchen, and Thanksgiving is no exception! so she incorporated "Deviled Eggs" to the Menu and so did I to continue with hubby's family tradition:

I've never really taken a good picture of them because as soon as they're out... they just disappear!

Auntie Amy's Deviled Eggs

9 hard boiled eggs
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup salsa (Auntie Amy and I use Newman's Own All Natural Chunky Salsa)
2 tbsp. finely chopped green onions
2 tbsp. sour cream
salt and black pepper to taste
Cayenne Pepper (to taste)

Directions: Remove the yellow of the hard boiled eggs, mash it and mix it with the rest of the ingredients (except for the cayenne pepper), fill the whites of the eggs with the mixture and sprinkle with cayenne pepper if desired.

Now... I am sure all of you know how to make "hard boiled eggs" but just in case, I am going to share with you my method to make them AND most importantly to avoid the "grayish" look around the yellow of the egg, it just doesn't look pretty when it's not a perfect bright yellow and there's this gray/greenish look around it... so... here it is:

Place the eggs in a  medium sauce pan with enough cold water to cover them perfectly (or a bigger pan if you have too many eggs), turn on the heat to medium, as soon as the water reaches the roll-boil point set the timer to 5 minutes, after those 5 minutes immediately remove your eggs and place them in icy cold water. Remove the shell right after they're cold enough to handle. (crack on both ends and then roll them with your hand open over a hard smooth surface putting some pressure to completely "crush" the shell, now you can easily remove the shell without "damaging" the egg). Enjoy!
