Deviled eggs

12:45pm Thank god this is the end of this. One week is enough detailing. I had one of my deviled eggs and two Kashi TLC crackers. I was testing the Indian-spiced eggs I was bringing to a party. I thought they were a bit too sweet, so I added an extra sprinkling of chile powder

3-6 pm At the party I had two wings, a cheeseburger, salads, pork loin slice, a brownie and a bit more that I didn't capture in photos (bite of ham, bite of a different pork loin and a mini chocolate chip cookie).

Whiskey water 

I know I said I only use this bottle for water cooler water or tap water, but I also use it for Jack Daniels. On this holiday occasion it's pure whiskey.

9:30pm For the record, and not that anyone's asking, I'm exactly to-the-number what I weighed when I moved to NYC ten years ago Memorial Day weekend 1998. I only mention this because it's unusual, and I also must admit that I'm kind of proud to be the exact same weight as when I was 25 years old. It took lots of yogurt and baby carrots over the past three months. And no, I wasn't even close to small in '98 and I'm still not, but there is a satisfaction to getting back down to my mid-20s weight at 35. This is a fitting end to my week of detailing, which was kind of scary.

  1. i make curried deviled eggs a lot… i use mayo, dijon mustard, curry powder (or garam masala), shallots, lemon juice, cilantro, and sometimes a little ginger… and they’re awesome. mango chutney just sounds like a bad idea.

  2. bill p: it’s actually not as creepy as it might sound. I had my doubts, but the mango chutney kind of works. I had to up the spicy quotient for balance, though. The true test was that the eggs disappeared in minutes. I was kind of worried that they’d sit and rot in the sun but party-goers were totally into them. Frankly, I just wanted to use my deviled egg carrier, which only gets use maybe once every two years or so.

  3. everyone loves deviled eggs, even if they don’t know it.

    i probably won’t use mango chutney next time i make mine but i would certainly try them and am prepared to eat my words many times over.
