Cucumber Egg Salad Bites / #OurFamilyTable

I am an egg lover! What about you? I enjoy eggs pretty much anyway you can make them. From the pretty basic, over easy breakfast (and sometimes dinner) with ham and toast, to a fancy chocolate souffle. If eggs are on the menu, I'm there! Today I made Cucumber Egg Salad Bites. These little bites remind me of tea parties and fancy luncheons. They are dainty and quite refreshing, and would make a wonderful addition to your Easter or Mother's Day table!

Cucumber Egg Salad Bites
(recipe makes approx. 20 pieces)
(printable recipe at end of page)

6 Eggs
2-3 Cucumbers
1 small Onion
3-4 tablespoons Mayonnaise
Ground Pepper
Fresh Strawberries


Boil your eggs first. I boil them a certain way, and I very seldom ever have any trouble getting the shell off. This is how to make them look pretty. Place the eggs in a pot of cold water. Put the temperature on high so they will boil. Once boiling, set the timer for 15 minutes. Once the timer rings, take the eggs to the sink. Don't drain the hot water, but start adding cold water to the pot. Let water run over into the sink, until the water in the pot is ice cold.

 Remove boiled eggs from the pot. The shells should come off quickly now, and more importantly, with out looking cut up and ugly.

I sliced the egg down the center, then turned it and sliced it on the other side. Chop into pieces.

 Before placing the egg salad in the cucumber, cut a little bit of the flesh of the cucumber away from the sides. Only go about half way down. You want to leave a little bit on the bottom.

Chop the onions into small bite sized pieces. Add mayonnaise, a little at a time, mixing after each addition. You will know when you have enough. Sprinkle with ground pepper. Chop the strawberries. Don't cut them too tiny. They taste best in this dish when they are cut a little bigger. Use a small scoop to place egg salad into cucumber.  That's it!

Naan Bread Grilled Veggie Pizza / #FarmersMarketWeek

We love homemade pizzas at out house! We love adding our favorite toppings and our favorite cheese, and popping them on the grill or in the oven, for a quick and easy snack or meal! Over time we have experimented with various types of crust, and we have several that we like. We have tried homemade dough, dough from the grocery, and frozen dough. We have used tortillas as the crust, along with purchased crust, but these Mini Naan Breads are a family favorite. We all like them!
This recipe is super simple and quick. I used purchased Naan Bread and purchased Pizza Sauce, so this may be more of a "how to put together a pizza", than a recipe. I added tasty items from the Farmers Market, like onions, roma tomatoes, and corn.  No matter how you look at it, you are going to love these pizzas. For a quick meal or snack, they can't be beat!


Naan Bread Grilled Veggie Pizza
(printable recipe at end of page)
(makes 2 pizzas)

Mini Naan Bread
Pizza Sauce
1 Roma Tomato
2 tablespoons of Corn 
2-3 tablespoons of Sweet Vidalia Onion
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Mozzarella Pearls


Spoon pizza sauce on to the Naan Bread. Chop up onion, slice tomato, and cut corn from the cob. 
Roast the corn on the grill, or in a frying pan, until it is brown and delicious looking.
Start building your pizza. Add more of what you love, and less, or none of what you don't!
Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella over the sauce and vegetables. Add the fresh mozzarella pearls to the top! They are the best!
Place your pizza on a baking sheet and pop it into the pre heated oven at 350 degrees. It should take approx. 7 minutes to bake, then switch to broil for 3 minutes.
If you are grilling the pizza~YUM! Use a temperature of medium, and watch the bottom of the Naan Bread so it doesn't burn. It will taste so good and take approx. 15-20 minutes.
This is definitely ready to eat!
Anyway you cook it, you are going to love Naan Bread Grilled Veggie Pizza!

Watermelon Treats / #SundaySupper

I am always happy and sad to see Labor Day come around. I don't like that it means the end of summer, but I love that fall will soon be in the air! Labor Day gives us the chance to celebrate both summer and fall along with the reason for the day~to celebrate working men and women! We are sharing Labor Day Menu Ideas today for SundaySupper, and I am excited about these simple and fun Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats!
Watermelon Treats 
(printable recipe at end of page) 
(makes 12 treats)
3 tablespoons Butter 
10 ounces Marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
Candy Corn Cookie Cutter
Frosting Colors in Pinkish Red, Green, and White
3 #2 decorating tips, 3 decorating bags
Mini Chocolate Chips
Sticks for the treats


Most cooks know how to make rice cereal treats, but just in case it has been a while, here's what to do: Melt the butter in a large saucepan, over low heat. Add the marshmallows to the butter and stir until they are completely melted. Remove the pan from heat. Add the cereal, and mix together until covered completely.
 Place the mix into a buttered or sprayed half sheet pan, or any pan that has sides the same height as the sheet pan. Cover with plastic until cooled. The rice krispie treats should be even across the top with the top of the pan. 
Cut out the watermelon slices. Using the space sparingly, you should get 12-13 watermelon slices from the rice krispie.
Mix the pinkish red color together. Use your favorite recipe, or use my favorite. I have used this recipe for years, and I think you will like it! Use a decorating bag and a #2 tip to outline the watermelon slice and then fill it in. Drop approx. 6 mini chocolate chips onto the top 3/4's of the treat. Insert stick into the bottom of the watermelon wedge. Let dry.
Use the green frosting color, and a decorating bag with a #2 tip to form the rind of the watermelon.
Fill in the area. Let dry.
Use the white frosting to draw a straight line to resemble the white part of the rind.
Insert sticks carefully. Inserting the sticks could make the frosting crack, so moving slowly works best.

Snack Time Fruit on a Stick /#15 Minute Friday

Sometimes it only takes a few extra minutes to make something look special, and in return make it enticing and irresistible! That was my goal today for this #15 Minute Friday post. How to make simple grapes and bananas look special enough that children will pick the fruit over a cookie or candy. I think this Snack Time Fruit on a Stick just might work!
Snack Time Fruit on a Stick
(printable recipe at end of post)

Red Grapes
Green Grapes
Bananas
Palm Tree Drink Stirrers
Strawberry Yogurt
1 Dollop of Whipped Cream 

This is all you need for each skewer. Decide what design you want to use to thread on the fruit. make them all the same, or change it around. I cut the bananas a bit wide. If they are too thin, they will fall off the skewer. 
I think the skewers add a fun element to this very simple snack.
Mix the whipped cream and the yogurt. The fruit tastes great dipped in this.
That's all there is to it. The stirrers can be found at the dollar store. They come 10 to a package.
Thanks for joining me for another 15 Minute Friday!
