It's been a cookin' Easter!

Well, Easter is just about over and I have not stopped cooking!  In a good way, but non-stop!

Good Friday was with the MiL so I escaped having to do anything very much.  But on Easter Saturday I made fresh tagliatelle, Easter cupcakes, blueberry tart and porcini sauce.  All the aforementioned have been cited on my blog before so I won't bore you with the details, but it was all go in the kitchen!

On Easter Sunday we said Hallelujah!  To Ms Lisa Faulkner.  I made her roast leg of lamb with garlic and rosemary, her mint sauce, her Nanna's nut roast and her creme brulee.  All were mighty fine and scoffed with much enthusiasm, although the mint sauce wasn't very minty...more of a hollandaise, so next time I shall step up the mint!

It never gets as much 'press' as Christmas but actually, on the cooking front, it is almost as busy really!  A big fat roast, guests to entertain and feed plus egg hunts to organise.

I also broke my Lentian fast of 'no wine in the week' with the most gorgeous bottle of white burgundy.  Heaven...

I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend; shame about the weather!
