Toasted & Buttered
Being a non-religious soul I'm not exactly sure about why we celebrate Easter (ouch don't hit me please) but I do know that ever since I was a little kid I loved my Hot Cross Buns toasted and buttered and I now appreciate a really good chocolate Easter egg compared to a cheap and nasty one. My earliest memory of Easter is when my primary school had an Easter hat parade and I dressed up in a hat with a hen and eggs (pictured above) which my mum helped me put together — actually I think she did most of it. I'm not exactly sure why I'm holding a pot plant but I think I must have been proud of perhaps growing a little watermelon seed. Here's some food for thought by The Independent UK about 'Why we celebrate Easter, and where did the bunny come from?'.
So what's the biggest chocolate Easter egg you've seen this season? I spotted a 6 kg Ernest Hillier Chocolate Easter Egg at Georgiou's Confectionery in Petersham for $230 last weekend.
Wishing all my readers a Safe and Happy Easter!
