There are two WONDERFUL reasons that today is special!

First, today is my daughter Shelby’s birthday!  She is turning 13!  I can’t believe how time has flown by!  She has grown up so fast and I am super proud of her for tackling things that no one else in the family would dare to try (like play the trombone!)! Shelby rocks!

The second thing that makes this a special day is that early this morning at 3:35 a.m. my first grandchild was born!  My daughter Coral and her fiance’ Tyler welcomed their son, Tristan, into this big wide world!  This is SO exciting for us!  He is just precious!  Although they were hoping to get a 12-12-12 baby, he is lucky enough to get to share his birthday with his Aunt Shelby!

Boiling eggs is simple enough and making devil eggs for hor dourves is super easy!  With the holiday season right around the corner, a lot of people start looking for an easy and inexpensive dish to take to pot lucks and gatherings.   Since eggs are relatively cheap, they are a good candidate as the beginnings of a crowd pleasing dish. Here is the recipe I use for my deviled eggs (which disappear as soon as they are put on the table!).

You will need:

  • eggs (as many as you want, each egg makes two deviled eggs)
  • mayonnaise
  • yellow mustard
  • garlic salt
  1. Put the eggs into a pot of water (the water should cover the eggs) and bring it to a boil on the stove.
  2. Once the water has come to a rolling boil (BIG bubbles in the water, moving fast), turn the burner OFF and cover the pot with a lid.  Leave the pot on the stove, covered, for half an hour
  3. After half an hour, drain the eggs and fill the pot with cold water and let the eggs sit in it for a few minutes to cool them down
  4. Peel the eggs and rinse them off and pat them dry
  5. Once all the eggs are peeled, cut them in half, longways
  6. Scoop out the yolks (yellow part) and place them into a small mixing bowl.  Place the whites onto a plate lined with a paper towel (so the eggs don’t slide around)
  7. Once you have all the eggs cut and yolks in a bowl, add a few spoonfuls of mayonnaise and a squirt or two of yellow mustard.  Don’t add too much mayonnaise or mustard at first, because it can cause your filling to be too runny.  Remember, you can add more as you go.
  8. Mix the yolks, mayonnaise and mustard really well with a fork (or electric mixer), working out the lumps as you mix.  If the mixture is too dry, add a little more mayonnaise.  Mix until smooth.
  9. Add a dash of garlic salt and mix well.
  10. Take a ziplock bag and open it wide.  Scrape the yolk mixture into the bag and then zip it shut.
  11. Place everything into the fridge until you are ready to serve the eggs.
  12. When you are ready to serve the eggs, cut off a corner of the ziplock bag and squeeze the filling into the egg whites.
  13. Top each deviled egg with a dash of paprika (optional)

After having four kids, it occurs to me that I might know a few tips and tricks that might not be so obvious to most people.  The other day, I was driving Ben home from school and I realized that I carry a lot of stuff in my vehicle that most people don’t.  I consider these items minivan essentials in my life!

  • A large cup in my front cupholder .  This plastic cup is bright yellow and I don’t use it for drinks.  I use it to hold odds and ends such as:  a few paper clips, a rubber band or two, dental floss picks, a pair of nail clippers, pens, a pencil, safety pin, tiny bottle of hand sanitizer, a small note pad, band-aids, a hair elastic and other little bits of stuff.
  • One of those plastic rectangular baby food containers with a lid that I keep all my loose change in to use for tolls
  • An empty kleenex box that I use to keep extra restaurant napkins in (like when we get something off the McDonald’s dollar menu and they give me fifty napkins but I just need one).  These napkins work better for messes than kleenex does
  • A travel size container of baby wipes
  • An envelope in my glove box that holds current fast food coupons
  • A regular sized bottle of drinking water and a box of crackers or cookies or grahams * this prevents me from having to stop because a child is whining “But Mom, I’m starving NOW!”
  • Jumper cables, an extra quart of oil and a gallon of water (in case of overheating)
  • A blanket for family outings like going to see 4th of July fireworks, etc.
  • My reusable shopping bags (for when I go to Aldi’s or Save a Lot)

So, what about you?  Is there anything you keep in your car or van that makes your life easier?
