I absolutely love Easter time! Hands up, I’m not really religious, but for me Easter is all about family. Being together, eating together – one big, loud, crazy family weekend. To top it off, the sun is shining! It’s going to be a fabulous weekend.
Today has not disappointed. My little has had the sick bug this week, and so we’ve not been up to much. He’s feeling better now, but still a bit wobbly so we’ve had a quiet couple of days at home. This also meant a luxurious trip to Saino’s sans children yesterday, so today has been all about cooking!
The schedule for the weekend includes Easter egg Hunting at my sister in-law’s tomorrow (complete with newborn lambs!), followed by a family lunch, followed by Sunday lunch at home with Mum and Dad and a Bank Holiday BBQ with my lovely running buddy – perfect!
So, to the menu:
Saturday lunch: Mum’s Lasagne, Sis-in-Law’s Chilli con Carne and for the children, Home made pizza with Milano salami (and my secret veggie pizza sauce) followed by Lemon Drizzle Cheesecake and Chocolate Easter Nest Cake.
Sunday Brunch: Fluffy pancakes with crispy bacon and Maple Syrup
Sunday Lunch: Spring Roast Lamb with rosemary roast potatoes, parsnips, cauliflower cheese and carrots. For desert: Marmalade Treacle Tart and Chai custard and Creme Egg Brownies (sorry, had to be done!!)
I’ll add and share my pics over the weekend as I make them – I hope you have an amazing weekend, whatever you’re doing. Happy Easter, lovely people!
