Happy Easter everyone, hope you have a nice day.
Where we parked the
car after our walk on Saturday, was a tree with pussy willow's coming
out, so I snapped a few off to use as my (slightly late) Easter tree.
On Good Friday I
made Hot Cross Buns using Paul Hollywood's recipe (well, almost). For
some reason I misread 50g butter for 75g and having got the recipe
off line, everyone who had tried them said they needed more spice so
I increased that as well. I made 12 but they didn't seem to rise as
well as mine usually do. Taste wise they are nice but wouldn't go so
far as to say 'the best ever'!
I haven't bothered with
an Easter cake as we are still finishing off the Stollen from film night
and also the shortbread I made the other day.
'Invested' in one of those half price legs of lamb which we shall roast with potatoes for lunch. Haven't had a roast for many weeks so shall look forward to it as well as making meals from the leftovers.
