Bits from my Easter long weekend, starting with this dark chocolate tart - my idea of the perfect grown up Easter treat.
Speaking of chocolate, there was a little chocolate brown new arrival that came with a waggly tail!
My dismal attempt at making a rainbow cake. A labour of love which somehow ended up looking a lot like my kitchen sponge. Now let's laugh and never speak of this again.
The sky stayed a brilliant dazzling blue most of the weekend
Perfect for a BBQ with friends. Not wanting to settle for the typical Aussie sausage sizzle, I prepared skewers of chilli and lime rump steak, prawns (not pictured), and chicken, oregano and haloumi, as well as a healthy green salad.
I don't know if it's ever alright to say this (lest I jinx myself) but I'm going to say it anyway.
Sometime during the BBQ, while I was sitting in my sunny backyard, laughing with my favourite friends, puppy in lap, tummy full, chocolate on my lips and a drink in my hand, I realised in that one moment that I am well and truly blessed; I am so happy and contented with my life right now. And knowing that feels pretty darn nice.
