Easter Cooking & Menu Plan

 

Hi everyone – sorry I dropped off the radar for a week or so – I’ve been in holiday mode!  Actually, I did try and post my Easter menu plan, with photos, but the internet connection kept dropping out, and the program kept crashing, and I finally gave up in disgust…  So here’s a few photos of some of the goodies we enjoyed over Easter, and maybe some recipes will follow soon – if I can get it together! 

[TMX = prepared and/or cooked in my Thermomix]

 

Raw Chocolate with Roasted Almonds (made in TMX) – yum!!

(made with cocoa butter, cacao powder, agave nectar, vanilla bean & sea salt, with almonds)

 
 
 

Spelt Greek Easter Bread (made in TMX with this recipe)

(I love the aniseed-orange-sesame seed flavour!) 

 
 

Chocolate-Orange Spelt Hot Cross Buns (made in TMX)

(Oh so yum, hot out of the oven!!)

We also had roast lamb and veges (with baked garlic, lemon & rosemary), a breakfast sorbet (made from frozen berries & bananas, oats, nuts, seeds, coconut cream & ice, in TMX of course)… hmmm, can’t remember what else!  Oh yeah, a dark chocolate Lindt Easter bunny each – hee hee!
 
Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely Easter break – it’s back to the grind for us again tomorrow, with homeschooling, babysitting, and lots of paperwork needing to be done . Here’s my plan for the week… check out Menu Plan Monday at “I’m an Organizing Junkie” for more menu planning ideas, and the Thermomix Forum too.

    Ainsley, I’ll try and get that recipe posted tomorrow – it will give me a good excuse to make it for breakfast again so I can take a photo!! 😀
