'Got Eggs?

Have you met Dahlia and Hyacinth?  Our two youngest hens.

Aren't they pretty?

With the sweet hens living in our backyard, we are always looking for egg recipes.  Check out my RECIPES page to see some of our other faves.

There is also LOTS of dill in the greenhouse!

Deviled Eggs are a great way to use both eggs and dill!

A nice big handful of Dill
6 Hard Boiled Eggs
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sweet relish
1 teaspoon spicy mustard


 The dill needs to be finely chopped, but save a little for garnish. I use a slap chopper thing from Pampered Chef.  Cut the eggs in half and pop the yolks into a bowl.  Mash and stir the yolks with the rest of the ingredients.  Scoop the yolk mixture back into the egg whites and garnish. 

We love these on weekends!  They are a great side dish or snack!
