Christmas

Christmas

Can you believe it? Another Christmas has come and gone…I can hardly believe it. It is like when you spend all day making Thanksgiving dinner and then everyone sits down and dinner is over in like half an hour.

My Christmas was full of fun, friends, family, and food! How did I manage to find four words that started with F…ahh Four…ok I’m done haha.

You know what the best part of my Christmas was?? IT SNOWED!!!! You should have seen me, and anyone who is my Facebook friend did, I was like a 4 year old when that snow started to fall as hard as it did!

Seriously, you have never seen a happier girl than I am when it snows. I will not be able to be one of those people that once they retire they can move to Florida. I couldn’t live without snow. Which is probably why I love New England so much 🙂

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved snow. There is this running joke in my family about it. That whenever Raven prays for snow there is always a really big storm…and ::looks around:: shhhh, don’t tell anyone….but I definitely prayed for snow this Christmas and we got 10-12″ depending on where you were. 😉

So, normally on Christmas my family has honey glazed ham. This year we decided to go all out and have a beef tenderloin. If you haven’t had one of these, I highly recommend it. It tends to be a more expensive cut of meat but the good thing is you don’t have to cook the entire tenderloin if you don’t want to. You can slice the tenderloin in half and then make 1″ thick filets and freeze them for later use. Seriously. Try it.

We also had mashed potatoes, mushrooms with cream sauce, sautéed peppers, salad, dinner rolls, and my personal favorite deviled eggs. YUM! My family’s deviled eggs are about the most simple, creamy, and delicious versions of a deviled egg.

Ingredients for Deviled eggs:

  • Boiled eggs
  • Yellow mustard
  • Mayo (I use the olive oil kind)
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Paprika

Cut the eggs in half and gently take the boiled yolks out of the eggs and place them into a small bowl. Add in your mustard, mayo, pepper, and salt. Now, I didn’t add any measurements because everyone seems to enjoy their deviled eggs different. So go wild and add in however much of eat that you want and make it your own!

Use the boiled egg halves and pipe/or use a spoon to fill in the cups. Lightly garnish with paprika and serve.

How much more simple can it get than that? I love these deviled eggs. I could make a meal out of just them if I was allowed to! haha

What does your family have for Christmas dinner?

  2. Your Christmas sounds wonderful and I know the meal was delicious. Beef tenderloin is one of my favorites.

  3. I discovered I love deviled eggs this year. I think in years past I just had some not-so-good recipes of them.

    I am still waiting for snow! I think the entire order got sent to the east coast. I hope it evens out for them soon so we can have a little and they can have a break.

    • Yea there is a way to make bad deviled eggs, some people just can’t do it. I am so glad you discovered you like them though, they are one of my favorites!

      Still waiting!? Holy moly, we got absolutely hammered the day after Christmas. I am sure your order is on the way 😉

  4. Sounds like you had a fantastic Christmas. And you had time to shoot photos on top of everything else! Love beef tenderloin, its perfect for a special holiday dinner. Its funny, even with all the fancy foods out there, deviled eggs are still one of my favorite dishes for family gatherings.
    Have a Happy New Year!

    • I ALWAYS have time to shoot pictures! haha. Like I said before I am one of those people who bothers others because I take so many, hehe. For sure, deviled eggs will always be a favorite of mine.
