Happy Easter to you all. Thanks for dropping by for this Good Friday edition of Favourite Things Friday.
As many of you read this I'll be heading up to my parents for the long weekend (I just hope the Easter Bunny knows to drop my chocolate off there)
My favourite thing this week could have been the 4 day weekend but that's way too obvious. So I'm going for the second most obvious thing . Hot Cross Buns. I'm old enough to recall a time when they only came with fruit and spice. There were no fruitless , mocha cappuccino, broccoli flavoured, chocochocolate chip stuff back in the dark ages.
Since hot cross buns now appear in the shops about a week after New Year there is plenty of opportunity to eat them for about three months of the year. I think that detracts from how special they are and the anticipation of that first bite and I usually refuse to buy any or eat any until the week leading up to Easter. And then I totally pig out. Usually I eat so many I'm happy not to see them for another year.
This mornings bun du jour was chocolate chip (I'm kind of glad they invented those. It's like eating Hot Cross Buns and Easter Eggs all at once.)
and this was the aftermath.
Enjoy your weekend ! Happy Easter to everyone.
