It is July 1 already? Half the year is gone and went quickly. Believe me when I say time goes much faster the older you get! And it will soon be the 4th of July - Independance Day - fireworks, maybe a parade or two, neighbors setting off loud 'bomb's' that make me jump in the evenings (and don't appreciate), kids with sparklers. Those were always one of my favorites as a kid.

Here is something fun to do for the holiday.

Patriotic Eggs
  • 8 eggs

  • food coloring

  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • dash pepper
  • dash onion powder
  • paprika for dusting

To hard boil eggs: place eggs in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring eggs to a boil. Cover and remove from heat. Let sit for 10 minutes. Drain eggs and cover with ice water. Peel shells off of eggs once cooled off.

To dye eggs: place eggs in a container and cover with water. You will need 20 drops of food coloring per 1/2 cup of water. Measure water that you pour over peeled hard boiled eggs and add the appropriate amount of food coloring. Allow to sit in food coloring mixture for 2 hours. Remove from food coloring and dry off.

Deviled Eggs: Slice hard boiled eggs in half. Remove yolks and mash. Add mayonnaise, vinegar, salt, dry mustard, pepper and onion powder. Stir well. Pipe yolk mixture into egg white halves. Sprinkle with paprika. Store in the refrigerator.
