Behold, the Easter Cake! I know it's not traditional. But I don't care. It 's a damned fine cake and the decorations, while not fancy, are tasty and Easter coloured, so it counts!
Our Easter dinner was not traditional either. Ham or Lamb would be the more standard Easter Table fair, but I made a roast chicken. Untraditional, but excellent. We enjoyed it :) With green beans, mashed potatoes and biscuits, it was delightful.
Clearly in our family, we are not overly concerned with piddly little things like cultural traditions. We are our own family with our own traditions and mostly that means doing whatever we please. It might be the same thing year to year, or it might be completely different one holiday to the next. We might absolutely ignore a holiday or on the other hand we could play it up to the max.
Some holidays we are alone, just the two of us. Some holidays we have been travelling and yet other holdays we have spent with family and/or friends. There are no set rules with us. We could just as easily have had pizza or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as the roast chicken and it would still have been Easter. See that's the thing, regardless of what you do or what you eat or who you are with, it's still the Holiday. That part does not change.
We enjoyed the heck out of the day. We slept late, had a nice breakfast, relaxed and watched a little TV. Tim took a jaunt over to the Jetty for a bit after doing a few house projects and I vacuumed and washed the floors (something I have been intending to do all week and FINALLY got around to it). We put together our Easter Meal and and enjoyed our dessert afterwards.
We coloured no eggs, there was no hunt, no "Easter" decorations and while at one time there was Easter candy in the house, we both bought and ate that weeks ago. It was a perfectly lovely Easter Sunday for us. Maybe not your cuppa peeps, but it was perfect for us.
Hope yours was exactly what you wished it to be :)
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
