Easter Weekend

This last week has been a busy one in our household. It’s whirled by a series of church visits, feeding 40 people beef stew and chocolate cornflake cakes, and then finally cooking lunch for 7 on Easter Monday.

As all the days seem to have rolled into one big weekend, I thought I’d illustrate the chaos with some photos I’ve taken (mostly of food, maybe all of food…) in the last week or so. I hope I’m not the only one dreading the return to the gym…
There were Mini Eggs, lots of Mini Eggs.
3 Purple Mini Eggs
Rosie Londoner’s Sweet Baby Cheesus
Rosie Londoner's Sweet Baby Cheesus, camembert baked in croissant dough
Rosie Londoner's Sweet Baby Cheesus
4.5kg of Lamb (Vegetarians look away now)
2 roast shoulders of lamb
A rather spectacular Smoked Salmon terrine with Rye bread
Whole Smoked Salmon Terrine
Sliced Smoked Salmon Terrine with Rye Bread
A filthy (in a massively good way) Nigella recipe Easter Egg Nest Cake

And of course the obligatory Easter Bunnies, Chicks and eggs

 I hope you all had a lovely Easter and managed to stuff yourselves silly with chocolate!

On another note, Rosie Londoner is holding a Blogger Bake Sale on Saturday 6th, at Bumpkin in South Ken (see flyer for more info) – I’ll be popping by with a tray load of cakes so if you’re around that area, make sure you pop in and contribute to these two great causes.

    Hi Sophie,
    I came across your blog after Rosie Londoner retweeted. It's brilliant! Absolutely beautiful layout and I love your short but sweet manner of prose. Keep going!
