Chives'n Ham Deviled Eggs RECIPE

Chives'n Ham Deviled Eggs

Chives'n Ham Deviled Eggs

Once of the first things that I harvest from my garden in early Spring are chives.  We are all familiar with putting sour cream & chives on top of a baked potato or finely chopping chives to mix in a salad but what about using chives in deviled eggs?  It's a delicious choice!
This is a very easy recipe to make and full of protein and flavor.

Chives'n Ham Deviled Eggs Chives'n Ham Deviled Eggs


8 eggs (hardboiled, cooled & then peeled.  Click HERE to view how to boil an egg)
1/3 cup mayonnaise (or sour cream if you prefer)
1/2 cup of chopped ham (chopped in a food processor - almost minced)
2 tablespoons (or more if you prefer) finely chopped fresh chives (rinsed & drained first)
a little ground black pepper
(I don't think it needs any salt because of the ham, but you may salt to taste at the end)

Prepare the ingredients as listed above.  Once the eggs have been boiled, cooled & peeled, then slice each one in half & remove the yolk - place all yolks in a mixing bowl.  Using a fork, press down on the yolks until they are crumbly & set aside.  Place the hollowed out egg whites on a Deviled Egg Platter (see picture above).  NOTE: You will actually have 16 egg white halves (8 eggs cut in two)

In a mixing bowl - combine the egg yolk crumble, mayonnaise(or sour cream), ham, pepper and chives (see picture below).  Stir until combined.


Chives'n Ham Deviled Eggs

Dollop a heaping tablespoon amount of the yolk/ham mixture into each egg white indentation.  (see picture below).

Chill or serve immediately & ENJOY!!

Spring Cleaning Our Personality - ENVY


Spring Cleaning Our Personality - ENVY

Springtime is here and this is the season where most people "spring clean" their homes, their yards, their offices and their diet - what about our personality?  Shouldn't this also be a time when we try to clean up our life?  If you observe Lent, then maybe you do something similar but we are going to concentrate our cleaning on specific characteristics.  Recently, we took a break from this Spring Cleaning series to focus on COVID19/Coronavirus 
(click HERE to view "COVID-19 Coronavirus Common Sense & CALM 
But now we will continue focusing on getting rid of these 5 bad personality traits:  Malice, Deceit, Hypocrisy, Envy and Slander.

Today, we continue our cleaning with the definition of ENVY

Envy - a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else's possessions, qualities, or luck.

Synonyms (mean the same) of ENVY - jealousy, resentment, green-eyed monster, covetousness, prejudice



When envy enters our heart, we are only thinking about ourselves.  You can't covet something that someone else owns if you are putting that other person ahead of yourself.  Envy is selfish and evil.

SundayPersonalityEnvy3


Read the following Passages showing the evil of envy:
Romans 1:28-32 (About sinful humanity) 
"They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of ENVY...." (vs 29)
Mark 7:20-23 (Speaking about that which defiles) 
" For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—..............., ENVY, ........." (vs 21)
Galatians 5:19-26 (Acts of the flesh followed by the Fruit of the Spirit) 
" The acts of the flesh are obvious: ..............and ENVY; ...............and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God." (vs 19-21)

SundayPersonalityEnvy4

How do we stop envy? - with LOVE.  

Read the following Passages showing that the solution is love:
Philippians 1:15-16 (When preaching about Christ) 
"It is true that some preach Christ out of ENVY and rivalry, but others out of goodwill.  The latter do so out of LOVE,............" (vs 15)
Titus 3:3-7 (Speaking about our old self and our new self) 
"We lived in malice and ENVY, being hated and hating one another.  But when the kindness and LOVE of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy." (vs 4)


SundayPersonalityEnvy5


1 Timothy 6:3-6 
"If anyone teaches otherwise and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, they are conceited and understand nothing. They have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
But godliness with contentment is great gain."

Goodwill, friendliness and love will wash away all envy!
