Easter Sunday

We had a nice and quiet Easter Sunday. Instead of an Easter breakfast we went for an Easter brunch at home so that everyone could sleep in after a busy week. The weather wasn't as sunny as they promised us but still it was not bad. Just now the news mentioned that it hasn't been this warm at Easter in 25 years.
Our brunch consisted mostly of normal things like jam, ham and eggs. As a specialty I did bake off some brunch panini and bought an Easter bread. Raisins, nuts and almondpaste are added to this sweet bread which is covered with a layer of powdered sugar. The funny thing is that they call it Easter bread now but around Christmas they call it a Christmas bread. Oh well who cares it tastes good. Outside the little hens hatch well between the orange violins. As is a Dutch custom on Easter Sunday evening everywhere Easter fires are lit. Prunings are piled high in the weeks before Easter Sunday when the fires are lit around 21.00 hour. Most fires have a big tent nearby for the socializing part where everyone can have a drink or two. Cheers!
