Happy Easter to you all!
I’ve got all of my family coming today for lunch…a spring lamb stew is in the slow cooker, and I’m also roasting a chicken for those who don’t like lamb! I’ve made a colourful salad and roasting some Cyprus potatoes too – I love cooking for my family and feeling quite prepared today instead of a rushing around mess that I sometimes allow myself to get in to!
I decorated yesterday for Easter – a gorgeous bunch of yellow tulips sits on the window ledge (my mantle equivalent!) along with bowls of fuzzy chicks, a rabbit and some love birds. My cat Pumpkin isn’t overly impressed since this is her spot!
I discovered a ton of fuzzy chicks that I had left over from the Easter Chick Wreath I made last year (and which I finally found yesterday as well!), and used them up by filled a couple of goldfish bowls with shredded green paper, and adding the fuzzy chicks on top. I had some daisy stickers that I stuck around the edges.
I filled up a basket that I had with pink and blue [plastic] speckled eggs and some more fuzzy chicks. Easy, simple, quick.
I thought I’d share this today since I’ve grabbed a spare moment before going into the kitchen to make some cookies and cupcakes. I’m also making some cinnamon balls and macaroons – recipes from my mother-in-law that she makes for Pesach – Passover which has fallen around the same time as Easter. My husband is Jewish and I’ve been promising him that I will make these one day – and today’s that day!
However you celebrate Easter, I hope have a lovely day with your friends and families – that is what Sundays are all about!
