National Deviled Egg Day!

Today we celebrate an all-time favorite hors-d’oeuvre or a side dish commonly served in parties and other holiday gatherings.  This day is observed annually on November 2nd.

Whenever you attend a gathering, the famous appetizer is served and one of them is always Deviled Eggs as the centerpiece.  Everyone loves them and it is one of my favorites too.

Deviled eggs also are known as stuffed eggs, Russian eggs or dressed eggs.  They are simply hard-boiled chicken eggs that have been shelled, cut in half, and filled with a paste made from the egg yolks mixed with other ingredients like mayonnaise and mustard topped with paprika to make it look pretty appetizing.

They are always served cold as a side dish or appetizer, often during holidays or parties.  The term “deviled”, in reference to food, was used in the 18th century, with the first known print reference appearing in 1786.  In the 19th century, it was often served with spicy or zesty.

So, today, celebrate this simple dish by making some yourself.  Anyone can really make them because there is no special recipe.  Share on social media using #DeviledEggsDay.

1948 Truman defeats Dewey

Heading into Election Day on November 2, 1948, it seemed like Thomas Dewey had the U.S. presidency in the bag. Numerous polls and pundits predicted a win for the Michigan native, New York governor and prominent gang-busting attorney. But, as a now-famous photograph would show, everyone—including the editors of the Chicago Tribune—got it wrong. The surprise victory of the plain-spoken Democratic nominee, Harry S Truman, would become one of the biggest upsets in U.S. presidential history—and it would forever be memorialized, thanks to an embarrassing newspaper gaffe.

Dewey made his name throughout the 1930s by prosecuting dozens of big-name mobsters, including Lucky Luciano and Waxey Gordo. His record helped in his election to governor of New York in 1942. In 1944, he won the Republican nomination for the White House but lost the general election to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1948, the Republicans again chose Dewey as their presidential nominee, with Governor Earl Warren of California as his running mate.

The Democratic nominee, Truman, had ascended to the presidency following Franklin Roosevelt’s sudden death on April 12, 1945, just three months after he’d been sworn in for an unprecedented fourth term. The plain-spoken Truman, a U.S. senator from Missouri before his brief vice-presidency, went on to lead the United States through the end of World War II and the transition to a peacetime economy. But in the 1948 elections, Truman faced significant political headwinds.
