For anyone mulling over Easter food plans as it’s Maundy Thursday, here is what’s on the menu in Chez Stein over the Easter weekend.
Kids creations – Today myself and the kids are attempting our 3rd year in a row of making hot cross buns for Friday, and also hoping on Easter Sunday (in between hunting for eggs!) to recreate a recipe found on Pinterest of an Easter bunny made out of pancakes 🥞; wish me luck!
Good Friday Dinner will consist of a salmon dish found on Pinterest and the kids will have some fish finger sandwiches and healthy crudités for ease as it’s swimming lesson day.
On Saturday I’m following a Mexican burrito recipe found on Pinterest with some avocado salsa. I will adapt the bean mix to be suitably mild for the children to want to eat also.
We have family over on the Sunday, so I just wanted to share with you what we will be serving up for the 9 of us.
Lamb Casserole – From Jamie’s Home Cooking Skills website. Mashed potato, Roast potatoes and spring greens (James Martin on good food website) with extra peas for the kids.
For the kids I’m making a chocolate cake I found on Pinterest. I will be using my own chocolate sponge cake recipe (I have plans to share more of my go to baking recipes very soon!), and then I will be following the design of the bird nestcake on Pinterest and so mine will probably resemble road kill! How lovely is the blue duck egg cake on my board, I would love to make this as it’s so pretty, however my children will appreciate the chocolate one more!
For the adults dessert I will provide fruit and cream and also be cheating as one of the guests is providing the dessert. Cheese and biscuits will also be on the menu.
Here is my menu of all of the above on my Pinterest board
