Eggs Every Day in May for National Egg Month
Despite what your doctor would frighten you into believing about animal fat and cholesterol, you can, perhaps even should, eat eggs every day during the month of May to celebrate National Egg Month. Or maybe your cardiologist would prefer that you do eat eggs, particularly in the form of creamy dreamy deviled eggs to coat the insides of your arteries with full fat fatty fatso mayonnaise so he will have enough business to fund his cutback to 9-holes for the duration of this recession.
Unluckily for him, I make a not-so-naughty version of deviled eggs made with fat-free plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise in half of the hard boiled egg halves and guacamole "lite" in the other half. If I could, I would eat these "Angelled" Eggs every day, but I'm punishing myself with deprivation for coming up with such a cutesy E-V-yumm-O-oh no you di-int name like "angelled." I know, it makes me want to *gag*, too.
As for all the other National [blank] Month, Weeks, and Days, I can't keep up. I mean, really? Tear open up a can of Del Monte Fruit Cocktail on May 13?
Damn, I probably would.
