Easter 2012 - Food

My dear friends, I hope you all had a lovely Easter. Ours was perfect - well, almost, as the weather was not entirely cooperative. We had another quick winter visit over the weekend and I'm afraid those pretty purple ballerinas that my little girl was looking forward to wearing to church on Easter Sunday will have to wait for a while. And they came all the way from Britain...! And just in time for Easter, too!

Anyway, for us, Easter is all about church and traditions, including some really yummy food. And since I'm much more into British traditions than our own I usually embark on preparing some tipically British dishes. As you can see, my Simnel Cake turned out perfectly well. And oh my, it was absolutely delicious! Mind the past tense - it's all gone now...

A box of chocolates I could not resist buying even though it was a bit on the pricey side. I loved the bunnies and the colours and would you believe it - the chocolates have not yet been eaten! I can hardly believe it myself...

Our Easter eggs - Basket No. 1; courtesy of my husband, children & Mum-in-law; for some strange reason, even though I love crafting, I'm not very much into egg colouring. Go figure.

More Easter bunnies - love love love the box, it's a keeper!

Another British tradition of mine - Hot Cross Buns. I always make loads and loads and give them away to all our family and friends. Yummy as well!

And some more bunnies... I told you I loved the colours and all... Plus you get to see our gorgeous daffodils!

Easter eggs - Basket No. 2. The brown ones are dyed with onion skin, so clever, isn't it!

Some more bunnies & pretty daffodils...

So good to be back!
