Am I the only one who has trouble exercising self restraint at easter? I feel like an alcoholic who has been gifted 10 bottles of vodka under the largely farcical notion that they hold some deeper religious significance. If anyone needs me in the next few days I will be hiding in the walk in pantry consuming roughly my own body weight in cadbury mini eggs.
I used a Jamie Oliver recipe for my buns this year. Nigella has consistently let me down the past few years (I suspect maybe she should stick to her talents of giving the camera alluring looks and decorating her kitchen with fairy lights rather than actually writing recipes). I used half wholemeal flour and nuttlex instead of butter since it was good Friday and I couldn't go to the shops to buy ingredients. They still tasted excellent.
Minty made easter cards and then got too tired to write on them.
I made some origami easter bunnies (instructions here). Honestly these are quite time consuming and probably not worth the effort. I planned to make more but couldn't be bothered. Like mother like daughter.
