{WNIMK} Post-Easter Eggs

Editor’s Note: What’s New in My Kitchen Wednesdays, is a semi-weekly series where we weave a personal story with a review of a beloved or new item in our kitchen, in our glass or on our plate. It is a few days after Easter so the question looms: What to do with those hard-boiled eggs? Take it away Sarah. -Christina

{the question looms…What to do with all the eggs?}

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I seldom have hard-boiled eggs in my kitchen.  Every year since I’ve had my son, I now find myself with several of them hiding-out in my refrigerator waiting for me to do something with them once Easter has left the building. What to do? I would soon find out…

{Running skirt seemed most appropriate for Easter Sunday}

This Easter, I had the distinct pleasure of having a very low-key brunch at the home of one of my favorite couples.  It was just the three of us and our three dogs. I agreed to stop on over for a delicious meal around 1:00 PM.  This gave all of us a chance to get our sweat on: Super-Workout-Easter-Sunday. I had a run planned with my dog to enjoy the fresh air. I arrived at their home to find one of them having also completed a run and the other having returned from a 40-ish mile bike ride. We were all feeling sweatastic and hungry so this is one surefire way to have a guilt-free holiday meal!

{Recipe Deciphering}

Turns out that they also had colored eggs and a similar dilemma.  Enter the champagne mustard deviled eggs made by my hostess, M.  They were delicious.  I am a moderate deviled egg fan.  They’re good, but I can live without them.  After a sweaty workout and arriving hungry, I can tell you that this was not the case for any of the three of us.  Before brunch was served we had polished all of them off.  Whoahhh! That’s a lot of eggs for three people.

{Even the dogs wanted a piece of the action}

So they’ve helped me decide what to do with the 18 vibrant eggs that are staring back at me from my refrigerator.  Deviled eggs with champagne mustard.  In fact I have a Ragnar Team meeting to attend this weekend so maybe that will be the perfect place to debut them.

    I’ve been eating the egg whites, with a dash of salt, for breakfast all week. Not quite as fun as Champagne Mustard Devilled Eggs, I must say.

    I’ve gotta say–I kind of hate deviled eggs. (Mayo is my kryptonite.) I do like big chopped salads, though…
