Happy Easter! I hope your day has been better than mine- Im feeling a little er, fragile today. Im not sure whether it was something I ate or a wee bout of flu, but I spent a good chunk of last night running back and forth to the washroom, sick to my stomach. As a result food has been pretty far from my mind today, making me a rather reluctant visitor to the farmers market.
Still, I figured that Id feel better eventually, so I should at least try to buy of couple items. The celery and carrots might go toward a final pot of Slow-Baked Beans with Maple Syrup. The nights can still be cool here, and I figure its my last chance to enjoy such a hearty treat before summer well and truly arrives.
The little treat bottom right is a sticky date bar. I love these things, but have never made any myself. This one was bought a) in case I felt like breaking my fast later in the day (I did), and b) for research purposes. Perhaps Ill have to get out my baking gear and attempt a version.
Whats happening in your kitchen today and this week? Any special Easter plans?
