Singing & Stuffed Eggs

The smallest singer with the biggest voice on my birdfeeder – the Carolina Wren.

Every other Thursday, members of our choir sing to shut-ins from our church: folks who can’t get to regular church services because of accidents, injuries or frailty. We go to homes, nursing homes, assisted living facilities & sing to our church members, their friends, families & neighbors. We sing in sick rooms, hospital rooms, activity rooms, diningrooms & parlors. We sing a cappella – without accompaniment. We sing old hymns, out of old hymnals in four-part harmony.

Singing is something everyone can do every single day. When you sing, you breathe deeply, expanding the lungs & increasing the oxygen level in your blood. It brings a smile to your face & if you sing in the car while driving down the street, it may bring a smile to the face of folks who see you as you pass by on your way. (Also, the acoustics in the car are better than in the shower!)

So sing everyday! You’ll be glad you did!

Basic Stuffed Eggs

You notice I didn’t call them deviled eggs – I figure the devil gets too much notice, & he certainly isn’t going to get credit for my delicious eggs, so they are stuffed, not deviled.

Ingredients:

  • 12 hard Boiled Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Sour Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Lemon Zest
  • 1/2 Tablespoon fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Sweet Pickle Relish (I use my homemade sweet pickles.)
  • Sea Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Paprika to garnish

Directions:

  1. Shell eggs then cut in half; place yolks in a small bowl & whites on a serving plate.
  2. Mash yolks with fork.
  3. Mix in sour cream, mayonnaise & mustard.
  4. Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice & relish.
  5. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Spoon into whites.
  7. Sprinkle with paprika.
  8. Cover loosely & refrigerate.
