Easter 2015

This past Easter long weekend was rather wonderful. Sure there was a slight hiccup in the middle (namely a random 30 hour stomach bug that arrived out of nowhere), but for the most part our weekend was filled with family, food and frolics. A favourite trio of mine! IMG_3455 Good Friday was, as is tradition, spent with Mr BBB’s family for their annual seafood feast (see past years: 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014).  The celebration kicked off late morning, and continued for most of the day, with everyone spending time in the kitchen working on their various dishes and seafood contributions. IMG_3469 And, while the menu follows a similar pattern each year – think prawns, calamari, oysters etc – it is always a great opportunity to try out some new dishes too. easter This year, for example, we contributed some slipper lobster (ie bugs) to the seafood line-up – served with a lovely sherry / cream sauce. IMG_3472 And – for dessert – we made a chocolate cardamom tart – that was oh-so rich and indulgent. Because there is never too much chocolate at Easter right?! IMG_3453 Food aside, the Good Friday lunch is always a perfect opportunity to reflect on just how much our little family has changed in years past… PicMonkey Collage For here we are, 3 years later, with another little girl in our midst, and that sleepy bunny from 2012 is now a chocolate-loving-energetic- pre-schooler! coll2 And as for the rest of the weekend – well it involved more food, a steam-train ride, cooking, running and an Easter egg hunt.
