We usually have the traditional Greek lamb on the spit at Easter but my dad is getting too old and tired to do it so we had roast lamb and roast chicken instead – in the oven with veg – just not the same – nice, but not thrilling!
Dad and I were not the cooks this year and it just didn’t feel like Easter.
I did do the baking of Greek Easter biscuits, breads and shortbreads though so I will post these photos. Mum and I always do a cracker job with the sweets…modest…I know…
The recipes for these are already up on previous Easter posts so I won’t bore you with them again.
Didn’t even have a glass of frikin wine – such a let down this year – Oh woe is me!
On the plus side, we had a cranking’ dinner tonight. Rain and thunder all day – it was the absolute best!
Comfort food in the way of gnocchi with béchamel, kale and parsley – too bloody good people!
Make gnocchi as normal – sauté kale and parsley – make béchamel sauce – add cheese – drain gnocchi – mix everything together in a baking dish – top with cheese and brown in the oven – almost passed out on the couch after this – so comforting, sitting here in my polka dot onesie with a glass of vino -too much information? Bad bloody luck! Ready to take on the fucking world…!
Feeling full and feisty…
