Happy Easter everyone! If you’ve been lucky enough to get some days off I hope you’ve been enjoying a long lazy chocolate filled weekend with your friends and family.
I have been indulging myself in a very foodie based weekend so far! Yesterday started with a trip to the Edinburgh farmers’ market…which somehow I have only just discovered exists! It was absolutely brilliant and it will become a regular Saturday morning expedition I think. Keep your eye out for posts featuring several of the goodies over the next few days!
On the way home I stopped off at the Chinese supermarket…another first but an incredible place where I should be banned from going to with a bank card because I wanted to buy absolutely everything, even the mystery pots of strange things that I could only guess at the contents of! Anyway, I was strict with myself and only bought the necessary supplies to try and make sushi after the success of our recent trip to sushi school!
The last thing I wanted to do was to decide what to do or make for taking to an Easter Sunday afternoon tea at a friend’s house. I was planning on making hot cross cookies until I saw a brilliant silicone tray in John Lewis and decided to make Easter eggs!
And voila! With relatively little mess I managed these dark chocolate eggs. I decided not to stick the halves together in the interests of making them easier to transport, but was really pleased with them!
