Wishing you a Happy Easter!
It has been a very lazy day today. I slept in late, catching up with some well needed sleep. Then I breakfasted on toasted waffles with apple sauce.
The waffles were made last week and then put into the freezer ready for emergencies. I simply popped them into the toaster without the need for defrosting. Wonderful! And there was a bowl of stewed apples in the fridge, made from apples from our tree, which I just passed through a seive to make puree.
Then I spent a couple of hours reading and had a long luxurious bubble bath...bliss. A perfect holiday!
Mum and dad made a lovely Easter dinner tonight. We had a cold meal because the weather is still very hot here in here New Zealand, even though it is Autumn. It still feels very strange for me to have Easter in the Autumn. For me Easter means spring flowers...pots of blue hyacinths, daffodils, crocuses.
We had Kulich and Pashka for dessert. Mum made the Pashka a few days ago and the Kulich was made this morning. They are my favourite Easter desserts and a Polish tradition that we have had since as far back as I can remember.
The icing on the Kulich is a little sparse because dad doesn't like icing on Kulich and he caught mum putting it on....sigh....I love heaps of icing on Kulich, so I had a little separate bowl of icing to put on my slice when I ate it, so we were all happy :)
I hope that you have a wonderful Easter and that the Easter Bunny is very good to you.
