It may take me days, months or even years to work it out but I'm up to the challenge..............
Our Easter was lovely; on Thursday, the last day of school we were invited round to a friend's house with the kids and enjoyed snacks, chat and a wee glass of wine. On Good Friday, grandpa came to stay and on Saturday, my lovely niece joined us too. We bought dvds, popcorn and sweets and cooried in for a film fest, venturing out for the occasional walk in the sunshine and lunch. Easter Sunday, I cooked roast lamb stuffed with feta, mint and lemon cooked in lemon juice and white wine, roast pork stuffed with chorizo, onions and fresh herbs, roast potatoes, boiled potatoes, roasted root vegetables with honey and maple syrup and steamed greens and baby sweetcorn. It was a good day and enjoyed by all.
Roast Lamb: looks messy, tasted lovely!
Roast Pork; hmmm, not a great pic but again, tasted gooooood!
I made an Easter cake, with help from the kids and it turned out pretty well. My friend Shona gave me a wonderful cookbook, from the Hummingbird Bakery which is where I got the recipe from a wonderful recipe it was too and spot on but the decor was inspired by Sarah Magid's Organic and Chic cookbook a few little basic recipe mistakes within but was worked out failry easily; very good for inspiration and her vanilla buttercream icing worked really well.
Pretty AND tasty! Brooklyn Blackout cake, Nutella icing inside.
I think they like!
