Day in the Kitchen Part I - the devilish side...

With small children in the house I seem to spend most of my time in the kitchen.  Some days I can't wait to step out of that area and others I catch some sort of manic virus that compels me to create more work for myself and spend every moment of the day there!

This was one of those days!

Ry has a bit of a cold so I decided to make him homemade chicken soup with lots of good stuff like garlic in it to shock his cold away! That meant we had to go to the store for some of the fresh ingredients. While we were there I picked up a few other things which was a big mistake! 

We started by decorating Easter Eggs which compelled me to take the remaining eggs and make deviled eggs that looked like little chicks!

I saw this on the Today show and although they didn't turn out exactly as Martha Stewart's did, I think they look great for my first try!
I boiled the eggs, peeled, and then cut them so they opened like a plastic Easter Egg.  I scooped the yolks out and then added: (this is for 6 eggs and you can really use any recipe you want)

1/4 cup mayo
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp freeze dried chives
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 dashes of hot sauce (I added much more then the three dashes - after all these are "deviled" eggs)

I just mashed it all up with a fork and mixed it until it was pretty smooth.  From there I put the filling in a baggie and cut the end off so I could use it to pipe in the hard boiled egg whites.  I used capers for eyes and carrots for a beak and put the top back on so the little chick had a hat!  The kids thought they were great!  They wanted to show me how they could bite the face off!  (nice...)
