Alice, this picture is for you! We missed not having our 'Aunt Alice' with us this Easter. Alice had every intention of joining us on Easter but she was ill the night before her travel day of 8 hours on the train & stayed home to get much needed rest. You were spoke of fondly & it was great talking to you on the phone but you were much missed by all of us here in Ontario.
Eva always brings chocolate, yum! I hold on to it as long as I can without eating it. It lasted till fall last year, I finally needed a chocolate fix. I broken the rabbit into pieces & put it into silicone cupcake cups, to coat just the bottom, silicone will not stick, you just wait till it cools into the round shape & pop it out! I melted down the dark chocolate rabbit & added whole almonds to the melted mixture, oh my goodness was it good. Elizabeth & I enjoyed what I called 'homemade almond bark'. Yummy chocolate, I just love dark cocoa chocolate! Yum. And it is said that it's good for you too! lol yes I know moderation is the key but when you want chocolate...have a friend to share it with!
Well with Easter now over, enjoy spring, it's a season of new hope as we watch Mother Earth come back to life with all her budding & flowering as the ground begins thaw & come to life again. Lush greens on the lawns will return to enjoy & enjoy them as the weather to come this summer in southwestern Ontario, is predicted to be above summer temperatures. After this winter...bring it on!
And remember the hottest day on the coldest night next winter.
I hope everyone had a joyous Easter with your family. Thanks for stopping by. :-)
