Happy Easter everyone! Even if you don’t celebrate the religious significance, you can still enjoy all the chocolate that’s around at the moment.
The picture above is chocolates left over from our trip to Brussels a few weeks ago. I bit into them so that you can see the luscious fillings; hazelnut praline, coffee and butter cream, I’m nice, aren’t I? They’re from a shop called Leonidas, which is a chain that has stores all over the world including the US, UK and Australia, but it’s a Belgian brand so it was nice to get them from the source.
When I was shooting this, I was thinking of my mum and sisters – they are absolute chocoholics. I really wish I could share these with them but I’d need to get on a plane for 22 hours. Sorry guys, no can do.
Easter this year will just be The Bear and I and this is what I’m planning to cook us for Sunday lunch:
Butternut squash, chickpea and chorizo soup
Roast lamb with rosemary and lemon
Roast potatoes and courgettes (zucchini) with garlic and chilli
No dessert – we’ll probably just polish off the rest of the Leonidas chocolates and if I’m lucky maybe he’ll get me a lovely dark chocolate bunny. (Hint, hint).
What are you planning to make for Sunday lunch or dinner? I’d love to know.
Happy cooking, Christie
