Ward House


Easter was quiet at our house.  The girls were visiting their dad and it was just Ronnie and me.  I worked on some homework until the decision was made to head out on the motorcycle to pick up a part in the next town and then ride around and explore some of the back roads.  It was on the way home that the bike decided to turn off of its own accord.  Yup.  You read it right.  We are cruising down a back road, on the way home, and the bike shuts off.  This particular part of the road does not have cell service, though I did find a spot where I could call out.  Ronnie’s brother was going to come trailer us out of the ‘holler’ when the bike fired up and we took off.  Now that we are home, it is time to make arrangements to get the bike to Harrisonburg to the dealer and find out what is wrong.  I am said that Phelan is not closer – her hubby is a kick you-know-what bike mechanic.  Update:  we believe it was a combination of over heating and a loose battery cable.

My  next question was  “what’s for dinner”?  Looks like we are going to grill a few steaks with sides of tomatoes with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and deviled eggs.   In the past, when I’ve hard boiled eggs, they are either not quite done or too well done.  How does one cook an egg so it is not over or under cooked?  I remember reading somewhere:  Bring the eggs and water to boil, boil one minute then remove from the heat and let sit for an additional 10-12 minutes.  At that point drain and then add cold water, let the eggs cool and then peel.  Ok, that seems to work well.

What deviled egg recipe do you use?  I found a simple recipe that included Curry – Ronnie was not pleased with it at first but seemed to like it enough to eat most of them.  Not a recipe that made it into the book so it does not get posted here.  Do you have a special recipe?
