Easter in pictures
What a brilliant Easter weekend. It’s hard to beat four whole days of food, family and sunshine. This week has been a bit of a slog after all that fun, and the grey, drizzly days aren’t helping; the BBC weather headline for today was “mist and murk” which sums it up perfectly! The lovely long weekend already feels like a lifetime away.
We had a bit of a family-fest over Easter, so of course it was also a bit of a cook-a-thon for me. In between walks in the Botanics and along the John Muir Way (of which more later), a visit to a Lego Exhibition (sadly now finished), playing with Jenga, cellos, Monopoly and dolls houses, and multiple treasure hunts, ice creams and conversations about bodily functions (that’s what happens when two of your company are aged 3 years and 10 months!) we fitted in a lot of food. Above are hot cross cupcakes, chocolate pecan pie, Easter Sunday roast chicken and a prepare ahead dinner of duck ragu for two. There was so much food that I can’t quite decide which recipe to share with you, so I’m putting it to a vote! Let me know which recipe you want to see and I’ll post it ASAP.
