1 Fine Cookie has an announcement.

 

 

We’re moving to Texas.

 

Breaking the news to friends, family, customers and colleagues elicited a wide range of emotions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m still not quite getting this whole, Downton Abbey thing.

 

Don’t worry. The majority of you will be unaffected. The website (obviously) and cookie shipments still remain. The only bad news is that cupcake, cake and most cake pops are local only. Sorry, Beantown.

 

As for me, I only have to worry about my frosting melting.

 

I have to say there is one thing I am certain of:

 

Having to explain to everyone why you are moving is about as awkward as bumping into an old college aquaintence you only spoke to when you were drunk at kareoke night.

You know. Where do you live? What do you do now? What’s your name again?

You go through the motions 100 times.

 

Athough they are hearing it for the first time, you have heard yourself say it over and over again. For some reason, if I only use one of ten reasons for moving, such as, “I like hot weather,” it doesn’t seem good enough. They look at you anticipating more. But I don’t want to say more.

 

So eventually, I resorted to responding with, “I do what I want.”

“I’m going into protective custody”

“I really, really love Tex Mex.”

“I feel giddy when referred to as a Yankee or outsider.”

“Most people see my tan skin and think I’m Mexican, anyway.”

“I’m Tony Romo’s baby mamma. ”

 

Also, I didn’t realize how “Boston” everyone thought I was until they kept insisting, “You can’t move, your so….BOSTON.”

 

Yes, I am very Boston.  So of course, my recipe must involve a bid adieu to my hometown.

 

They are deviled eggs stuffed with lobster. I’ll miss the good lobster, and chowder. I added bacon in for good luck, too.

 

I then decorated them to look like little baseballs, because I grew up a Red Sox fan. I pulled my hair out of my head when I discovered that I would only be able to see them play in TX once this season. After a 2  1/2 hour drive. A touch longer than the 5 minutes from Fenway Park.

 

So before I purchase my MLB network package and tape ice packs to my body,  I present to you, lobster and bacon stuffed baseballs.

 

Here is What You Need for Your Lobster & Bacon Stuffed Deviled Baseball Eggs

 

eggs, boiled

bacon cooked to crispy 

lobster (fresh, cut into pieces or there are cans of frozen lobster if need be)

optional: mayonnaise, sour cream, or greek yogurt to mix in with the egg yolk

green onions or chives

 

–  1 cup mayonnaise (OR any substitute that you prefer)

-1  1/2 tblspn olive oil

dash of salt

1/4 tsp of lemon juice

 2 cloves of garlic (Add a dash of garlic powder if you really love the flavor. Just don’t try to kiss me or close-talk at me)

1 tsp paprika (OR less if you are sensitive to a little spice)

–  optional: 1/2 tsp saffron

 

-You need something to make your aioli red to appear like baseball strings. You can either use red food coloring, OR if you want something more natural try red beet powder.

Just click on the underlined text to purchase.

 

- a piping bag and tip OR squeeze bottle. (condiment bottle)

 

 

Slice your boiled eggs in half. Scoop out the yolk, and place about 1/8- 1/4 of it into a bowl. I wanted a lot of lobster and bacon, so I used only a little yolk.

 

If you would like to add your mayo, sour cream, Greek yogurt or whatever substitute mix that in now.

 

Add in the lobster, chives/green onions, and bacon.

 

Pretty easy, huh?

 

 

Now for the aioli. Grab your mayo, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil (not pictured), paprika, and saffron.

saffron

Saffron is probably the best looking spice. Brings all the boys to the yard.

 

 

I did not do it here, but in another batch I broke up the saffron which made it process better. You can break it up in a plastic sandwich bag, or in my house, with a mortar and pestle.

use a food processor

 

Combine ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.

 

 

until it is creamy

It comes out a pretty pink.

 

Cut the hard egg white halves down to look like half of a sphere. I tried using the more rounded bottom half as they look more like a ball.

 

Stuff with your lobster and bacon mixture.

There is no doubt in my mind that this will get you laid. Unless you are under the age of 18. Then only use this to make friends.

 

If you were raised in a very religious household then you cannot use this to get you laid until marriage. In the meantime, make this for church. Jesus will love you. (Unless you VERY STRICTLY follow the old testament which forbids pig and shellfish. In that case make them, walk into the closet and rapidly shove them into your mouth.)

 

Seriously, though. Lobster + bacon + deviled eggs + aioli = the most amazing food in the universe + infinity + 1.

As for the “baseball” look, color the aioli with food coloring or beet powder. Fill a squeeze/condiment bottle or piping bag.

 

Flip the eggs so that the bottoms face up.

 

Draw two arcs over each egg. Then, make little lines throughout each arc to resemble the stitching.

Serve. I’m envisioning for Independence day (if baseball does not = America I don’t know what does), sports or baseball themed birthday parties, and  World Series/Opening day viewing parties. Well, at least in my house we have World Series/Opening day parties.

These things are so cute they could almost be compared to an adorable fat-cheeked baby.

 

Must. Squeeze………………..

Farewell, Boston.

 

 

I suppose I’ll have to make a little space in my heart for TX.

    As long as you do not stop entertaining me on an almost daily basis I wish you the best of luck with your move and the new chapter of your life. Your words bring me entertainment, laughter, and a sense of relief when I realize ‘I’m not the only one who thinks this way!’. Don’t stop that.

    1. Good luck with the move! As a fellow Yankee (NJ) transplated to the south (New Orleans), you will miss home every day, but will fall in love with the South, it’s people and culture! You will be lucky enough to have two “homes”.

    2. Love this recipe!

    3. Where can I find that necklace?! I NEED one with NJ and LA! :)

    Thanks for doing what you do!

  4. Fabulous twist on deviled eggs! Good luck with the big move. Tex Mex-loving is as legitimate of an explanation I can think of for moving to Texas!

  5. giddy says:
