Thanksgiving Dinner

Well it was definitely a lot of work, but luckily everything turned out very delicious :)  Happy Thanksgiving and thank you to everyone that supports me.  

Deviled Eggs
7 Eggs
2 Tbsp Milk
1 Tbsp Dill
1 tsp Lemon Juice

Boil the egg until down (about 8 minutes).  Douse them in ice cold water to make them easier to peel.  Peel the eggs.  Cut in half length-wise and scoop the yolk out into a bowl.  Add equal amount of mayonnaise as the yolk.  Add the Milk, Lemon Juice & Dill.  Mix together thoroughly.  Add the mixture into the empty yolk hole of the eggs and top with a dash of Paprika.
