Christmas Tradition: Deviled Eggs

Along with other required favorites, my family always requests deviled eggs for our Christmas dinner. I found this recipe nearly 40 years ago, and I have never been persuaded to use any other version.

Deviled Eggs

6 hard-boiled eggs, halved
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Halve eggs lengthwise; remove yolks and mash (or process in food processor) with mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, and salt and pepper. Fill or pipe into egg white. Chill.

Oklahoma's Big Score

Congratulations to Oklahoma Sooners quarterback, Sam Bradford, for winning college football's prestigious Heisman trophy!

Just another reason to be proud to be an Okie.

Oh What A Beautiful Mornin'

It's not just a song from Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma!, it's a true statement. The above photo was taken this morning. The unusual streak above the horizon caught my eye. It is called an "anticrepuscular ray"!

Here is the sunrise from yesterday.

This sunrise was in February.

To step out my back door in the mornings, coffee cup in hand, and gaze at nature's palette--well it's just another reason to be grateful to live in Oklahoma.
