Happy Monday!!! Yesterday was Easter and an amazingly blessed day that capped off an equally perfect weekend. I have discovered that since I started blogging about health my readers aren't nearly as interested. Soooo I will spend a little more time blogging the things we all really love......FOOD. My 3 men and I went to my parents for an Easter feast and my offerings were few but yummy, as was the rest of the food on our buffet. I made Key Lime Pie and Italian Style Deviled Eggs. Neither were of stellar health profile but what the heck it's a holiday. Both were however, ridiculously simple.
Key Lime Pie
Graham Cracker Crust, I made one but you can buy it, really great in mini pie crust
Whipped Cream, please splurge on making homemade for this, makes such a difference
3 cups condensed milk, can't type this w/o a smirk, this stuff should be illegal but glad it's not!
3/4 cup key lime juice, honestly I just used bottled lime juice and can't tell the difference just find a good brand. Whole Foods carries a really good organic one, like that matters w/ all the condensed milk.
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon lime zest
Mix condensed milk, lime juice, sour cream, and zest. Pour into pie crust and bake on 350 degrees for 5-8 minutes depending on the size, 5 for mini pies, 8 for whole. Refrigerate until completely cooled. Top with whipped cream and garnish w/ slices of key limes.
Italian Style Deviled Eggs
I did not measure a thing on this one so you will have to taste as you go.
Boiled Eggs, peeled and cut in half placing yolks in a separate bowl
Prosciutto, finely shaved, you will need very little it is so stinking expensive but incomparable.
Mix the yolks with mayo and pesto until you get a consistency and taste that you like. Fill the egg whites with the mixture. Heat a little olive oil in a small pan and add pieces of prosciutto. It will crisp extremely quickly so be prepared. Top eggs with fried prosciutto pieces.
After a day of eating goodies like this I recommend being ever so thankful for a healthy body and spending the next few days filling yourself with a little less indulgent food.
