Nothing beats waking up on Christmas morning and seeing that Santa has been… but one thing that does come close is waking up on Easter morning to see if the Easter bunny paid a visit. Every year without fail, the inner child in me can’t wait to find out what the rabbit has brought with him this year. (Unfortunately we don’t leave him a bunch of carrots… we really do spoil Santa with his gin and mince pie).
The Easter bunny always leaves a gorgeous, colourful Spring display of mini eggs, pace eggs and even an easter egg or two.
The night before, I made some easter muffins. I somehow managed to make double the mixture needed for my cases so I decided to pour the rest into one big baking tray to make one big muffin too. These cakes are apple, cinnamon and blueberry flavoured… I know they sound quite Autumnal but they were delicious!
Easter Sunday always means a walk with the family and a picnic. After breakfast, the brie and fig sandwich preparations go underway…
… and then off we go on our walk!
I forgot to mention the pace eggs… Every year for as long as I can remember, my Dad prepares a batch of pace eggs which we then roll down the hill in a race against one another. We all get very competitive when the eggs have been rolled and there is always a lot of discussion whether anyone gave their egg an extra push!
After all the fun and games, it’s then time for our sandwiches…
… before heading home for a slice of Mum’s beautiful simnel cake (yes more cake!). I promise I will be writing healthier posts soon.
This has been our Easter routine for such a long time now. I absolutely love family traditions, I think they bring us closer each year and it’s a great way to create memories. What did you do this easter?
Lots of love, Sass xxx
