Belated Easter post
Easter has come and gone and I am posting this only now. They say it's better late than never. It's been a long time. I've been off social media for sometime. Wasn't at all motivated to pick up the phone and post anything. I'm lucky I forced myself to take a snap or two of our Easter holidays. As you can see I decided to switch to English so that people from around the world can read my blog. I was especially asked to do so by my Russian friends, so I decided to give it a go.
As a child I never really celebrated Easter. The only thing we did was say to each other "Christ is risen" - "Indeed he is risen". It's kind of code, if you think about it. You're testing, whether the other person is one of "us".
However, when I become a mother, Easter has got a whole new special meaning. Our family has created a bunch of Easter traditions, which we follow one year after another. We decorate a catkin birch, we have a "last supper", we paint eggs and, the best of all, we arrange a chocolate egg hunt for the kids (and for ourselves, to be frank).
Another fun Easter activity for us - the grown-ups - is planning an Easter menu and cooking together. What I usually do every holiday is I go through food magazines and pick out recipes and ideas. This year we made deviled eggs, shrimp cocktail and asparagus with hollandaise sauce for starters. This lemon chicken for main course and mango-passion fruit pavlovas for dessert.
