I recently, or FINALLY for a better word, got into Downton Abbey after everyone was talking about how great the show is, and now I am HOOKED! I spent a few long evenings and a couple of weekends having Downton Abbey marathons watching episode after episode. Of course season 1 was only available on Netflix and season 2 was on Hulu, making it slightly difficult to catch up but luckily my mom had free trials with each and so generously gave me her login info. So, my crisis of "how do I watch this show?!" was averted!

I was so relieved when Matthew and Lady Mary finally realized their love for each other and got married. It had been such a rocky road getting them together and I just always knew it was meant to be.

 Now that I am finally caught up with all three seasons and have to wait for season 4, I am wishing I had just one more episode to watch. Season 3's dramatic finale with Matthew dying in a car crash after welcoming his first born baby into the world left me with so much curiosity and I must find out what happens next!! 

Oh, how I wish I had another season to watch...

I love deviled eggs, but I would have never thought to try using avocados instead of so much mayo or mustard. What a fabulously, healthy alternative. This is a must try!

Note: Prepare right before serving, as avocados may become dark.

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 medium avocado, diced small
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • Salt to taste


1. Cut boiled eggs in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out yolks. Mash yolks with a fork.
2. Stir in diced avocados, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt to taste.
3. Fill egg whites with yolk mixture and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle with cayenne or fresh, chopped parsley. Makes 12 servings.
