Glad Pask!!!

Happy Easter Weekend!

We have had a lovely start to the Easter Weekend here - good weather, company and food.  Yesterday I made some homemade Hot Cross Buns and then we ate them!  Today we slept late, walked in the sun and had a long lunch with champagne and salmon and made our own marzipan chickens and bunnies for dessert.

Good Friday Lunch

Making Dessert
Last weekend we went to the country and stayed in an old manor house and went to a chocolate exhibition in a nearby town.  We bought homemade pralines and did some antique shopping.  We went to a ballet in the Stockholm Opera house on monday and the rest of the time I have been working, shopping and walking the dog.

  1. Hey Chick!

    Lovely to 'hear' from you and see more pics! Sounds like you are busy and enjoying the sunshine there. Its getting cooler here, the breeze is nippy and the sun is coming into my lounge - which means winter is on the way.

    Happy easter to you both too... enjoy all the lovely goodies you have been making. I am sure that our Spar bought hot cross buns are not nearly as good as yours!


  2. Thanks for this post, Lis
