I had a teacher at school and we used to often while away Maths classes singing silly songs, one of which was about the easter bunny. Now I have the only line I can remember, which is “coz I’m the easter bunny”, stuck on repeat in my head.
If anyone has any annoying songs about the easter bunny they’d like to share let me know!
Here goes my promised update on the goings on of Easter.
A collection of floral tributes, I went out into the garden the other day and was taken by the range of colours, shapes, textures
and interplay of light that I found there. I seem though to have taken lots of roses, so another time I shall have to delve into the more tropical aspects and the bright shininess that they throw out.
I also promised you a look at my ultra artisan hot cross buns. I made them to this recipe but used a combination of spelt and whole grain flour, a mix of dried mango, cranberry and blueberry, and molasses instead of sugar. I have now discovered that you need quite a light-hand when working with spelt flour as the gluten is not as durable as when using standard flours.
They came out looking rather lumpish, and were pretty heavy. However the flavours were amazing, and I’m pretty impressed with them for my first sourdough cooking experience. Just don’t judge me too harshly!
We had a great time over the long weekend, my sister Amy came up to visit and we had heaps of fun. Went to visit Australia Zoo, where Steve Irwin’s dreams live on. The midday show they do is awesome, with input from the birds, crocs and elephants. Also spent a lot of time looking at kangaroos, Cassowary, Tigers and a screed of other creatures. The zoo is awesome, however the new Africa section lets the side down a wee bit, but I think they still have a bit of work to do on it. We also had a couple of swims at the beach – Cotton Tree and Noosa, and a great lunch at the Surf Club at Noosa. Gra and I got a night off when Amy stayed in to babysit max and we went to the RSL here, it was really nice, though a rather interesting decor!
Just for a comparative note, this is Brutus, a massive croc we saw on the Adelaide River near Darwin.
