Just like an Easter egg that has been sitting in the sun for too long, our school holidays are quickly melting away. That was a bit lame but please stay with me!
I kicked my Easter chocolate purchasing off by ordering some of the good stuff from Spencer Cocoa. What is not to love about chocolate that is made ethically with real ingredients right here in NSW.
We have been picking and poaching quinces.
Some of them found their way into a simple butter cake and some have been enjoyed with honey yoghurt.
Easter weather is close to perfect in our part of the world and in the afternoons I find myself constantly admiring the sparkly light on our verandah.
On Easter Saturday we visited family for a special celebration. Part of the lavish dinner was a whole spit roasted pig. This animal was raised, slaughter and cooked by my cousins who well and truly know their way around large pieces of meat.
In the garden we have been planting garlic, making pea trellises and enjoying the milder sunshine.
Easter really is a lovely time of the year.
How is life at your place? I hope you are enjoying the sunshine too.
