Life in the Country- When Life Gives You Puny, Make Deviled Eggs


Some days you just feel puny, you know?

You’re not feeling bad but you’re not so good either. 

Days like this call for something new. Maybe even a few Something News. 

Today I added sweet potatoes to the deviled eggs and it was good.

Sometimes all it takes is a little spice to push a day from Partly Cloudy to Right Nice.


But in case that didn’t do it- I made Seven Layer Bars- only I rearranged them completely.  They’re now Landfill Bars…Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie crust (without the chocolate chips), layered with Dulce de Leche, bittersweet chocolate chips, Kraft Caramel chips, semisweet chocolate chips and topped with coconut flakes and more Dulce de Leche. 

Sometimes it takes a  little overdose of sweetness to let a bit more light into an otherwise dreary day.


That’s how we do dull, gray days here in the holler.  We sugar and spice ‘em up until they shine.
