Easter is one of those holidays I've always struggled to understand. As a non-Christian, it never meant much besides eating chocolate before 8am and wearing atrocious headgear in my school's annual 'Hat Parade'. Now that I am older, wiser, and allowed to eat chocolate whenever I bloody well like, Easter has faded away to being little more than a nuisance; it's impossible to go shopping on Good Friday, and my favourite local café is closed for the long weekend, which means going cold turkey on my coffee addiction.
That said, I am one for positivity, so today, despite years of skimming over Easter celebrations, I decided to go all out and embrace a forgotten holiday.
As I've mentioned, for me Easter is all about eating, so I went to my local Coles and stocked up on chocolate eggs and speculaas cookies (YUM!!), plus ingredients to whip up my favourite meal of all time: Goats Cheese, Pumpkin, and Spinach Lasagne.
I was hoping for picnic weather, but unfortunately Melbourne has decided to go into a permanent state of rain. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise; I spent the day in the warmth of the kitchen, dancing around to The Kooks and the Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging soundtrack.
Hope you all had a brilliant day and got nice and chubby on chocolate
