Happy Easter Monday!

Happy Easter! A couple of weeks ago, there were bunny tracks in the snow. NOW we know why…

And speaking of snow, seeing our barbecue covered in it is an all too familiar sight this winter. But recent rain and sunny days have cleared the area enough so that T was been able to use the barbecue twice last week. On Easter Day, it was sunny and chilly. It was a tiny bit warmer than the weather office had predicted. It actually went above freezing. I was a little surprised that we didn’t get snow.

It always snows on Easter Sunday! Even when Easter doesn’t fall as early as it has this year.

Happy Easter! We went for a short celebratory bike ride and imagined that there would be no more snow this winter. Because of course, it never snows after Easter!

Silly us. This is what we woke up to today. Good thing we didn’t put the snow shovel away.

Our Easter feast last night was brilliant: we started with toasts spread with duxelles, balsamic onions (actually, they should probably be called “cider onions” because I used cider vinegar rather than balsamic vinegar) and/or goat cheese drizzled with herbed olive oil; followed by ham glazed with peach chutney, beets with onions and fennel seeds, green beans, scalloped potatoes and finished with wine poached pears… and chocolate, of course.
