Easter this year was a pretty action-packed one actually, with family from out of town and me trying to eat ALL THE THINGS.
Friday was definitely spent doing exactly that, with a trip to not only Smith & Deli for lunch, but Smith & Daughters too (for a family dinner).
The only thing I ate that wasn’t a S&D product that day was one cherry tomato and one french fry.
I also went to the NGV to check out the Triennial exhibition with my sister-in-law, baked fantastic hot cross buns, had an Easter Egg hunt, read a whole lot of books, had a bonfire night with extra snacks, made an Easter cake for the kids, had our online book club chat for Trainspotting,
Ate a hell of a lot of the aforementioned hot cross buns (truly, my best yet),
And chowed down on Menemen for our Easter Sunday brunch. The weather was glorious, the wine even better, the company the best.
I now, however, live to regret purchasing two Elegant Rabbits, as neither of them taste like they did in childhood. I’m never going to get through both, let alone one. People laugh at “leftover chocolate” but I feel like our whole house is made of it after Easter every year.
The rest of the school holidays shall now be spent catching up on all the reading and knitting I’ve been “meaning to do” this whole first term. It was a doozy.
I’ll see you tomorrow for the Hot Cross Bun recipe – you’ll be everyone’s favourite neighbour/family member/friend come next Easter, I promise. They’re that good. SO FLUFFY!
