Easter Celebrations: 2002 : 2006 : 2007 : 2008 : 2009 : 2010 : 2013

Easter 2009

So often, in the frenzy immediately before dinner, I don't remember to keep the camera out as we're serving. But luckily for us, our brother-in-law did remember and took photos as our feast was being served. (Baked ham, scalloped potatoes, roasted parsnips, steamed green beans, beet salad, sweet cardamom bread, two kinds of mustard)

With sweet dough flavoured with crushed cardamom, I made hot cross buns for Easter morning and for Easter evening, baked this braided loaf for us to break apart rather than cut. It tastes better that way!

Cardamom Bread (April 2009)

Beet salad and two kinds of mustard: our own mustard and "Moutarde de moët de raisin" given to us for Christmas. It is more like fruit preserves than mustard and but does have a lovely hint of mustard in its flavour. And the colour is beautiful! A deep burgundy making the mustard look almost like very fine roe.
