I've been craving a cold lunch for a while now, and since it is so fricken' hot out there today (feels like 33ºC), it was the perfect day to have one.  Having a cold lunch, cold plate, deli dinner (and various other names, I'm sure), allows for both yummy food and relief from the heat on a super hot day.  Plus it is an amazing excuse to make and eat deviled eggs without having to go to a pot luck!

There are loads of Deviled Egg recipes online (try All Recipes, and there's even DeviledEggs.com), and today's recipe is a mishmash from both those sites, plus a little added flare of my own.

Step 1. Hard boil 6 eggs and let them cool.  Peel and cut lengthwise and scoop out the yolks.

Step 2. Mix egg yolks, 4 tbsp mayo, 1/2 tsp dry hot mustard, 1/2 tsp vinegar, 1/8 tsp garlic salt, and pepper to taste.  Scoop the yolk mixture back into the eggs as equally as you can (I used a teaspoon but you can use an icing bag if you want to be fancy!).  Sprinkle with paprika and serve.

I ate mine with some store bought macaroni and potato salad (both sprinkled with shredded cheese).  It was super yummy and perfectly cold on this very hot day.  What are your favourite foods to eat when it's hot out?
