The Devil Went Down to Georgia…

We have internet!  And I cooked dinner in my oven!  A banner night all around 🙂

On my walk home this afternoon I realize that it had been 6hours since breakfast and was going to be another 4 until dinner, definitely time for lunch!  I made a stop into Subway.

I got a 6inch tuna salad sub with oil and vinegar and red onions.  I think the combo of tuna salad and red onions is just to die for!

I got a meal (hello, fountain diet soda!) so I also got some Baked Lays.

I took me a while to get hungry but once I was I got HUNGRY!  I also ate a serving of Goldfish,

and two cookies (yes in my Goldfish bowl, we have a tiny dishwasher I can’t be dirtying things left and right!).

Thankfully I was still hungry for dinner because dinner was a freaking masterpiece!

Every single component was through the roof tasty and the combination all together rocked my socks.  Plus, you know any meatless meal that the husband raves about is a winner.

My Buffalo Blue Bean Burgers,

Unfried Green Tomatoes from Cooking Light,

and 2 deviled eggs, recipe below.

Made for quite the pleasing meal.

The husband is obsessed with deviled eggs and since I won a year’s worth of Eggland’s Best it’s hard to turn down his request.  Tonight I tried out a new recipe that I thought up at the bar at Cheesecake Factory the other night;

Dirty Martini Deviled Eggs

  • 1 dozen large eggs
  • 2T olive brine
  • 2.5T blue cheese crumbles
  • 2T mayo
  • 6 pimento stuffed olives, halved
  1. Hard boil your eggs.  My method is to place the eggs in water in a big pan, bring to a boil, then turn off the heat and cover for 15minutes.  If you run cool water over the eggs when the time is up they will be easier to peel.
  2. Peel eggs and slice in half lengthwise.
  3. Dump yolks into a medium bowl and mash together with brine, blue cheese, and mayo.
  4. Spoon the yolk mixture back into the whites and top each egg with an olive half.

I’ve got my 2nd shower of the day and I’ve promised my pack-mule of a mover husband a back massage.  Then it’s off to bed so I can hopefully make it to an early morning tomorrow.

Deviled eggs; like ’em, love ’em, or hate ’em?

P.S. I apologize for the brain worm title, I’ll be singing that song all night too!

  1. I put raw red onions into my salad and hated it, but having it with tuna sounds really good. The burgers look great! I’ve actually never tried deviled eggs but I’m sure I’ll like them since I love eggs : )

  2. Dude, what flavor of goldfish are those? I miss goldfish so much. During finals week at UCLA my tradition was buying one of those HUGE costco-sized boxes and I would easily eat my way through it, accompanied by diet coke or red bull, for a week straight. Sigh… those were the days 🙂 I love goldfish. Your dinner looks absolutely delish and I want to try ALL of those recipes!

  3. I try to resist the siren call of the fountain diet sodas…but they always get me in the end! I love the combination of tuna and red onion too, but don’t eat it often because eating raw onions at lunch leaves me with a weird aftertaste all afternoon.

  4. mmm i agree, love adding red onions to tuna! those unfried green tomatoes look like they turned out awesome. and i LOVE deviled eggs! sometimes if i want a less fat-dense version i replace the yolks with some hummus mixed with mustard.
