Hi everyone – sorry I dropped off the radar for a week or so – I’ve been in holiday mode! Actually, I did try and post my Easter menu plan, with photos, but the internet connection kept dropping out, and the program kept crashing, and I finally gave up in disgust… So here’s a few photos of some of the goodies we enjoyed over Easter, and maybe some recipes will follow soon – if I can get it together!
[TMX = prepared and/or cooked in my Thermomix]
Raw Chocolate with Roasted Almonds (made in TMX) – yum!!
(made with cocoa butter, cacao powder, agave nectar, vanilla bean & sea salt, with almonds)
Spelt Greek Easter Bread (made in TMX with this recipe)
(I love the aniseed-orange-sesame seed flavour!)
Chocolate-Orange Spelt Hot Cross Buns (made in TMX)
(Oh so yum, hot out of the oven!!)
We also had roast lamb and veges (with baked garlic, lemon & rosemary), a breakfast sorbet (made from frozen berries & bananas, oats, nuts, seeds, coconut cream & ice, in TMX of course)… hmmm, can’t remember what else! Oh yeah, a dark chocolate Lindt Easter bunny each – hee hee!
Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely Easter break – it’s back to the grind for us again tomorrow, with homeschooling, babysitting, and lots of paperwork needing to be done . Here’s my plan for the week… check out Menu Plan Monday at “I’m an Organizing Junkie” for more menu planning ideas, and the Thermomix Forum too.
