Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday is always so fun, but this year was extra fun because we all knew we were expecting the Easter Bunny and a basket filled with goodies to find! Not to mention ALL THE EGGS that would be hidden! But who knew that some of the eggs would even be in the house! How did that bunny get in here??? Well since it was wet and maybe going to rain, the bunny brought most of the eggs inside to be safe. That was really super fun!! And they REALLY liked that the bunny put one of those big glitter bouncy balls in their baskets!
Sammy found a ton of eggs and was really excited about what was inside them! YUM!

Emma was a super egg hunter too!

After the egg hunting morning, we headed over to the grandparents for a nice Easter dinner and fun with some of the extended fam. I brought the deviled eggs and used the recipe here. They were pretty yummy and I liked the different presentation.

The Best Deviled Eggs

One dozen hard-boiled eggs, peeled
3 heaping tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely chopped (plus more for garnish)
4 slices of cooked bacon, finely chopped (or bacon bits)
2 teaspoons dried tarragon
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
1/2 teaspoon saltFreshly ground pepper, to taste


Take each of your peeled hard-boiled eggs and slice off the bottom (wide) end to expose the yolk. Cut a small sliver off of the top (pointed) end to help it sit up straight. (I ended up cutting them in 1/2 so I could use both sides, but made the cut with the pointed end up.)

Scoop out the yolks into a medium-sized bowl and place the whites carefully into an empty egg carton with the hole-end up for filling purposes.

In your bowl, mash the yolks with a fork and add mayonnaise, lemon juice, chives, bacon, tarragon and mustard, then stir well. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Use a pastry bag with a piping tip or a zip top plastic bag with a corner snipped at an angle to fill your egg whites with the yolk mixture. Add more mayo if the mixture is too thick to pass through. Garnish with chopped fresh chives.Nikohle & Emma
