A celebration has engulfed the kingdom. The kingdom was victorious in its previous conflict against the evil necromancer overlord. You are at the center of the dance floor enjoying yourself. Yet, something seems off – the enemy gave up a bit too easily and the leader is still out there. No matter, for now the ale is flowing and the music is loud. Suddenly, one of your comrades breaks through the door with several arrows in his chest. Silence strikes the room. You rush to your fellow knight but realize you are too late. Unsure of what is going on you rush through the door he came through to see the vile necromancer stealing the main source of power in the kingdom. You look up to see the king hiding in fear as the necromancer floats away. The king says, “Please get the crystal and my daughters back!” You give him a reassuring nod and run out of the castle to complete his orders.
I have played Castle Crashers several times and thoroughly enjoyed it every time. The first time I picked up the game was when it was first released on the Xbox 360. My roommate picked it up and a group of four of us played the game all the way through. The first time around I played the green knight because green is my favorite color. I enjoyed it and went for a melee focused knight. Once we finished the game and unlocked new knights, we started the adventure all over again. When I moved from Chicago I lost the ability to play the game until they announced a PS3 release. This time, I played the red knight and focused completely on magic. The power was ridiculous! Enemies would walk in front of me and with one button they would be stuck in my electric field of death. Actually just thinking about it, I feel like booting the game up again and playing!
If you thought last week’s recipe was easy, you are in for a treat! Deviled Eggs are a delightful party finger food and it is always great to know a few. The great thing about these little guys is they can be done at the last-minute. This recipe might be one of the easiest ones I’m posting to date. The list of required ingredients is small and the amount of steps to make this is minimal. Enough chit-chat about how easy this is, let’s dive in to this one.
Servings: 4 Servings
4 hard boiled eggs, de-shelled
1 tsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp mayonnaise
If you need reference for how to hard boil an egg check out the first part of my egg salad recipe, found here. Once you have all your eggs completely de-shelled, we can get into the deviled egg part. Typically with deviled eggs you are going to want to cut them in half length wise (left set of eggs) but we want to keep these authentic to the game’s look (right set of eggs). Begin by cutting off the upper half of the egg and removing the egg yolk.
Place the egg yolks a bowl with the Dijon mustard and mayonnaise. Combine the ingredients until they are at the consistency you would like. Flavor with salt and pepper to your liking.
Fill the egg whites with the egg mixture and you have yourself some deviled eggs. If you want to dress them up a little more, feel free to sprinkle on some paprika!
