I wasn’t actually planning on Margarita Monday to be a regular thing, but I figured what the heck–who doesn’t like margaritas?!?!? Btw, if you’d like a picture of your tasty margarita to appear here for Margarita Mondays, please tweet it to me @epicurioustexan or send me a message on FB!
I know, I know…it’s been awhile since I’ve posted for Margarita Monday and honestly, I didn’t think I’d have a margarita post whilst posting about Hawaii. But in looking through all the pictures, I realized that we did have margaritas while we were there. And by “we,” I mean Christi and Tracy–but I had a tasty sip, or perhaps two…or maybe four. I mean how could you not when pineapple margaritas are on the menu?!?
These are from the Goofy Cafe & Dine in Honolulu, where we stopped to indulge in a bit of poke, bibimbap, and corn penne before we departed for the Big Island. Goofy doesn’t have an extensive menu, but everything was fresh, delicious, and locally sourced!
I don’t know about you, but there are a handful of required food items at any given social gathering in my family. Vying for the most important are: queso and deviled eggs. Since tomorrow is a holiday and I haven’t shared any recipes in awhile, I thought now might be a good time–you know, in case you’re stymied for ideas of what to take to the obligatory July 4th BBQ you’re invited to attend.
In trying to pick which of the two VIP food items I wanted to talk about, I decided to go with deviled eggs because I was chatting with Christi the other day about side dishes for her July 4th BBQ and since then I’ve been pondering all the ways you can make them. If you google “deviled eggs,” Google will kindly return with “about 3,460,000 results” in 0.42 seconds (Google is a bit of a show-off) and if you search for “deviled eggs” on Pinterest, you could scroll down for 3 days and not run out of pins from which to choose!
I know that I’ve already shared my recipe for deviled eggs with you.
But as both Google and Pinterest show, there is more than one way to devil an egg. Probably the only thing harder than keeping your self control in check, is picking a recipe. I mean, do you want classic or something more creamy or something with a kick or something eye-catching and holiday-themed? The possibilities are endless!
Here are a few that caught my eye (note: few is a relative term, as you’re about to see):
