The long weekend's joys started early for us with DS2 flying down from Sydney on Wednesday night for the Easter break - oh bliss! My baby was home with us for five whole days. We spent lots of time catching up and he spent lots of time watching footy with TraderVic as he does not have Foxtel in his Sydney flat and NSW is not really an AFL state like Victoria is (DS1 is finding the same thing in Queensland).
So, Easter was filled with catching up with family and friends, lots of long walks, reading, blogging and lots of stitching. Although, on the last I was a little hampered as DS2 slept in my sewing room which made it hard to get in there to find things.
We had our family Easter get together early (as it was the only time we could all get together) - so on Good Friday we had a meatless feast!
My sister and I did all the cooking and the young ones did all the eating! My dear Dad was in good form after his eye treatment a week or so back, so we had a lovely time!
Anyway, the train to work beckons.
I hope that your Easter was filled with joy, too.
Update: A few people have asked for recipes. I cannot give all of them as my sister did some of the cooking, too. But here we go:
I made the salmon patties - which is just a basic recipe:
the layered garden salad:
and the apple and raspberry crumble (I modified this recipe):
My sister made the rest. I know that this is the recipe for the potato latkes:
but I am not sure about the spanikopita or the prawn dumplings.
