Well another week has come and gone. Time sure passes quickly these days. Seems as though the Follow Friday Over 40 Top 5 arrive more quickly each week. Wonder if this expediting has something to do with the midlife phase or how much fun they are to partake.

Hope your Independence Day was filled with family, friends, and incredible food! This was the first year we didn’t buy fireworks or have a big shindig but rather a relaxing day of movies and yes lots of traditional 4th of July food. Admittedly, I enjoyed this midlife occurrence.

Anyhow, I whipped up a new version of deviled eggs adding Zesty Blends sour cream with Jalapenos. Sprinkled with smoked paprika, they were quite yummy I must say. You see, I hosted a Sour Cream House Party a few weeks back. Yes, I said sour cream party, funny right. Sponsored by Breakstone’s, the House Party offered participation in tasting and testing their new Zesty Blends flavored Sours Creams. It was fun to be part of the Zesty Blends buzz! You can check out my House Party here and several of my new salad recipes on my food blog, Are you hungry?
