Outstanding music last night at Metropolis, Battle of the Bands, by local bands fundraising for Maimonides Geriatric Centre. Thank you to my talented friends Elliott Shuchat and Johnny Miller for extending numerous invitations and reminders. Thank you also for being so devoted to music and giving us the pleasure of listening, singing along and pretending for just a moment that we’re not just one generation away from needing Maimonides’s care. Special thanks to vocalists Jeff Stattner from Here’s Johnny, Freddy Brass and Terri Goldig from Switchback.  It was magical!

Fancy These Deviled Eggs


  • 10 eggs
  • 2 T mayonnaise
  • 1 T Dijon
  • 2 T coloured pepper, very finely chopped
  • 1 T red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 T chives or scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 T celery, very finely chopped
  • 3-6 shakes of Tabasco
  • 1/2 t salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • paprika
  • 1 T very finely chopped coloured pepper, red onion and chives or parsley as garnish

Place the eggs in a roomy pot of cold water. Bring to a boil then cover and set aside. After 12 minutes bathe the eggs in cold water, then refrigerate until cooled. Peel the eggs, slice lengthwise and collect the yolks in a bowl.

Mash the yolks adding mayonnaise, Dijon, peppers, onion, chives, celery, Tabasco, salt and pepper. Bring the yolks to your desired creamy consistency adding mayonnaise if required. Sample to adjust seasoning. Stuff the yolk mixture into the whites and garnish with chives, coloured pepper and paprika.
