Are Deviled Eggs Evil? – Conversations with Stella and the Pack


I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. The wonderful smell of cooked eggs washes over us from the kitchen. Our chicken friends have been generous once again.

Me:  Some of these are set aside for deviled eggs. You may each have one egg, except for Sweetie. The egg whites disagree with her. She can have one yolk.

Tiger:  I want the devil stuff you are making.

Me:  It’s not devil stuff.

Wiggles:  Isn’t the devil bad?

Me:  Yes. But the devil has nothing to do with this dish.

Doodlebug:  Then why name it after him?

Me:  I guess because of the spices and the mustard that make them taste a little hot.

Miss Sweetie:  Eggs! Eggs! Eggs!

Me:  Let me see what I have leftover.

Wiggles:  Eggs! Eggs! Eggs!

Me:  Okay I can’t peel them that fast.

Tiger:  I want eggs! I no longer want the devil’s food!

Me:  No food is the devil’s food…unless maybe you eat too much of something. That can feel really bad. That’s why you are each getting just one egg.

Stella:  Why did the devil invent eggs?


Stella:  Well, Doodlebug is passing very stinky gas and I think that the devil invented that.

Doodlebug:  That’s what I think, too.

Me:  It is tempting to think that. But no…

Stella:  Lady Human, forget the devil part. Just stick with eggs. Eggs! Eggs! Eggs!
