Deviled Eggs

Happy Monday. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I had a great time with my family.  We had a birthday celebration for the September birthdays at my Uncle’s house on Saturday. That means lots of good food & laughs. We even spent sometime looking at old family photos, which means lots of cute and funny pictures of Bryan. I know, I know. You are thinking, I said MY family right. Well technically it is Bryan’s family but they are MY family too. I really don’t understand how people say things like “my wife’s family” or “my husband’s family”. I love them just like they are my very own family. So when I say MY family, they ARE MINE. 🙂

Every time we get together, we try to all bring something. That way everyone contributes and it is not too much for one person. I decided to make Nana’s strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting which I am not allowed to share. Nana usually makes dessert but since it was her birthday I figured I would make it instead.  I also made some quick & delicious Deviled Eggs that no one was able to enjoy because I left them in the fridge and didn’t realize it until I was almost at my Uncle’s house which is a hour away. Don’t you hate when that happens!?!? I am still eating eggs. lol. If you are looking for a quick and easy appetizer, deviled eggs is a go to. Just make sure you don’t leave them at home. 🙂
