Easter Baking...

I am so happy it is Easter! I finished work at midday today and have 5 glorious days off. There are so many things to love about Easter. I love spending time reflecting on the reason for it. It is also a time we spend time with family and friends. I always partake in too much chocolate but for some reason Easter eggs taste so much better than normal chocolate! And I love Easter baking!!! This morning I made a batch of chocolate cupcakes to take to work to share with everyone. This afternoon I have made another batch as well as a chocolate caramel brownie. I bought the icing Easter decorations on the cupcakes as much as I'd like to pretend I made them!!! I have also got a tuna mornay in the oven for dinner with a bit of a retro feel about it, I have put 'french fries' (not the hot ones) on top with the grated cheese over them - does anyone else remember doing something similar in the 70's?? Still a batch of bunny biscuits to go tonight although I am running out of steam. We are off to Geelong tomorrow to have a picnic at the beach with all of SH's family. To make it easier we are all going to have fish and chips but I will take our baking down to go with our after lunch cuppa. I think we may end up at my S-I-L's as the weather is not looking good at all, very wintery!!!
Wishing everyone a blessed and happy Easter filled with love, family, fun and a little chocolate!

You have been busy! Can't say I've heard of putting those french fries chips on top of a mornay before but it does sound good! Enjoy your easter weekend,
