There are certain foods that for all of my life I’ve only enjoyed them when my mama made them for me.
Macaroni and cheese.
She does them best so why would I need to bother?
Only then she went and left town this past Easter.
Got in her car with my dad, went to another state, and shared all of her delicious recipes with family members who probably didn’t enjoy them nearly as much as I would’ve.
While I’ve said many times that large dinner prep is not something I am down for, in an effort to not be the worst mom ever, I went ahead and cooked Easter dinner for the family (including BFF and hers).
I served ham and mac and cheese and green beans and sweet potatoes. I made homemade rolls and cinnamon rolls and even, wait for it… deviled eggs!
Not one to be a copy catter, I decided to add a little extra awesome to them to switch them up.
I’d like to pretend that I did something intricate and spectacular here, but it’s not that complicated and I’m not that creative.
I simply ran into some chipotle flavored mayo when I was doing my Easter dinner shopping and I bought it.
It turned out to be tasty on sandwiches and crazy perfect for making chipotle deviled eggs.
