In our household, Easter is all about food, decorated eggs, movies, a walk in the park and trying to convince hubby that we need a couple of real bunnies and not only the ones on the cards. Attending The Small Animal Show this year made me more convinced about the latter. From this year I can also say that Easter is about funny socks.
I don’t think it comes as a surprise, I’ve decorated this egg freehand. Hubby said I should mention it was done by a 2 years old, but we don’t have any so I had to step up and admit that it was my own masterpiece.
Last year I dyed the eggs, they looked great, but the colouring penetrated the eggshell. So, this year I thought I’ll try another method, using a set of stencils. Well… let’s say that was not at advertised.
Now let’s move on to the more important (and nicer) stuff: the food. Hubby took pictures and I’ll post the recipes on my new cooking blog when it will be ready.
For starters: The eggs, mashed beans with tomato relish, creamy leeks, Stilton & feta, olives, spicy peanut butter mushrooms, cheese salad with smoked paprika, cheddar & spring onions, homemade bread.
And now, the desserts. I have to admit we had dessert a few times yesterday.
As you can see, I’ve used the coffee cream and dark chocolate in different ways. I didn’t have a lot of time to cook so it was much more easier to create desserts like this.
