Hippity Hop Hop Easter's on its way

Happy Easter dear blog friends.
For those celebrating Passover well happy times to you too.
Thursday at my son's school they had an Easter Hat Parade which was a lot of fun, I took my parents along to have a picnic with the kids & to watch the parade. So many beautiful hats & happy faces.
On Good Friday we had a beautiful lunch around at the home of some great friends of ours. Delicious homemade curries, prawn green curry, yummy Malay fish & aubergine curry along with a yummy aloo mater.
We brought dessert, a lemon yoghurt cake with whipped cream & another friend who arrived later served up fresh ricotta drizzled with honey. The afternoon finished up with fresh made mint tea Tunisian style.
A lovely afternoon spent chatting & eating while our kids played together & we had some quality snuggles with the host's 9week old baby daughter. Ahh bliss.
Today is Easter Sunday & the kids awoke at 6.30 am to find that the Easter Bunny had left chocolate eggs outside their bedroom, they were very excited.
My parents joined us for a sumptuous Easter lunch of roast chicken & an array of delicious salads, my favorite being beetroot, bean, watercress, pecan nut & goats cheese.
My hubby tried out a new recipe for sweets, a lime & ricotta pudding.
Soooo good we'll definitely be making that one again. Lately we have been using produce from our home garden:- lemons, limes, basil, mint, rosemary, wild cherry tomatoes, water cress, leeks, green beans, free range eggs & sorrel. I'm a proud, lazy gardener, learning as I go.
It has been a beautiful Easter this year enjoying special times with family & friends.
Now I've crashed out on the bed trying to recover from our healthy feast.
Happy times to you.
