A Family Easter.

Eggs! Lovely Eggs!
Nests - the final instalment!
Carefully counted out and a little chick in each one.
And how's this for an Easter Bunny?! Hand-picked for a certain little man we know.
And since babies can't eat chocolate, at least we don't think so, this rather large duckling sat cosily in the tiniest nest for the tiniest cousin-
A HUGE nest for daddy, colourful eggs for mummy, and favourite white chocolate for our beautiful boy.
And after a long lazy lunch of Roast Lamb with all the trimmings, time to hunt for more eggs...
Hard work to find every single one!
Then back to the house for a hot cuppa and Easter Marzipan Teabread.......thickly spread with lashings of butter of course! Yum!
Hope you have all had a very Happy Easter. t.x

That marzipan tea bread does look and sound delicious. I seem to remember thinking I must make a Nigella cake that had marzipan in it once.
Thanks for your comment re Butlers in Holt. Sadly the piano wasn't played. Maybe I should have astonished the room by opening the lid. x x x

That all looks wonderful. Like everyone else, I'd be very interested in your marzipan bread recipe!
