“You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.”  ~G.K. Chesterton

It’s National Deviled Egg Day!

There are many different ways of making deviled eggs and people have definite personal preferences.  At my house the filling is moist (I use an olive oil based mayo), tart (we add vinegar) and bright yellow (lots of mustard). 

Our garnish of choice is paprika sprinkled over the top.  Your preference might be sliced olive, pickle or something else.  I like to use deviled eggs (and potato salad) as examples of how our thoughts, ideas and preferences are influenced by family and the community where we live.

What are deviled eggs like in your world?What about your deviled egg recipe makes it “just right” no matter what anyone else says?  Let’s talk!

What’s Fall Without Vegetable Carving?

What would Fall be without fruit and vegetable carving?  I know you’re thinking Jack-O-Lanterns, but what about carved watermelons or pineapples?  I doubt you’ve seen anything like these.  Please follow the links to see some beautiful pictures (there are a few magnificent  Jack-O-Lanterns included) and don’t forget to bookmark us before you go.

I just found one more I had to share.  If you’re not into carving check out these beautifully decorated pumpkins.  All you need is a pumpkin and a permanent marker.  http://rainbowelephant.com/pumpkins-for-non-trick-or-treaters/

Now it’s your turn.  Have you ever experimented with fruit or vegetable carving?  Or maybe you are quite accomplished in the art form.  Perhaps you have been inspired by a fruit or vegetable carving demonstration or display.  Do you have another way of decorating pumpkins?  Tell us about it.

“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.” ~Charles H. Spurgeon
