The egg...a perfect work of art...

As I filled the pot to boil eggs for my dad's deviled egg request for this Easter, I contemplated the egg. Like all of God's creations, it's one we cannot top. Smooth, perfect, symmetrical, simple, colorful (if we consider eggs beyond those of a chicken), and if I do say so myself, wow- what an amazing thing for a bird to pass (can you say ouch in bird language - holy tweet!!) Not to mention all of the ways in which this particular work of art can be enjoyed, beyond viewing, holding, and decorating. Just a few of my faves are soft-boiled, hard-boiled, scrambled, poached, the omelet, egg salad, and quiche.

Incidentally, I googled info on the origins of why they are "deviled", and it has the explanation that I settled on has to do with chopping and the piquant spicing, rather than the devil, so I am safe to serve them at Easter!

Happy Easter!!!

After all of this I am not sure I will be eating these now. I love deviled eggs. I just prefer not to think of where they come from when I am eating them.

Happy Easter Sisser!!
