Easter and High Tea with a Linky

We've been on lockdown since March 26, so Easter was a very simple affair. Hubby is the only one to leave the house for necessary groceries, so he made sure we had Easter chocolates. He hid a few chocolate bunnies around the house for Amanda. He even decorated the table! Isn't he a real sweetie?

So, the other day he came home with dragon fruit that was reduced to clear. I never worked with dragon fruit before. All you have to do is slice it through and the skin peels away easily with your fingers, no knife skills required. It doesn't have much flavor, but it is a superfood, so you can always blitz it with other fruit to make a smoothie.

The girls and I have been enjoying cooking and baking during lockdown. The other day, Amanda decided she wanted to put on a high tea for all of us. She prepared dragon fruit and gooseberries, Brazilian kisses (condensed milk truffles), no bake oatmeal cookies, cheese sandwiches, and cucumber slices. Samantha picked flowers from the garden to decorate the table. Everything was scrumptious!
