Happy Easter!

Happy Easter weekend everyone. I hope you find some time to enjoy a little chocolate in your day.


You can eat those delightful mini eggs straight up, or get a little crazy and build a nest on top of your oatmeal.


It was a great way to start my Easter Sunday, seeing as I have to work tonight, and will therefore be missing my family’s Easter dinner. Such is the life of a student who has bills to pay! I did splurged on a little present for myself though.


Just a little bottle of Long Table Distillery Gin to add to the collection. They are a brand new distillery in downtown Vancouver (I can walk to their distillery in about 15 min). I had a great conversation with the owners, and I’m looking forward to see the small batch specialty spirits they have planned.  


I even spent a bit of time making something more than just a sandwich for dinner at work. So while it’s no turkey dinner with all the fixin’s, I am looking forward to my spicy peanut soba noodle salad for dinner – chocked full of broccoli, cauliflower, edamame, and carrots. I may even fancy it up with some fresh west coast shrimp when I get to work 🙂


So let me live vicariously through you – what fun things are you up to this Easter weekend? Tell me about your family traditions, favourite Easter candy, or anything else you want!

    Happy Easter Marianne! I LOVE the mini eggs in the oatmeal! I mean, they pretty much go with anything =)

    OH YUM! I love you “nest” oatmeal, it looks fabulous.
    So, in regards to your questions on my blog; I have not froze the carrot cake bites, but I’m sure they would freeze well. In the fridge they would last about 2 weeks, or possibly longer (it’s just dried fruit and nuts, so two weeks seems reasonable, I kept some for a few weeks once and they were fine).
    As for me “feeling bad about what’s in my cart”, it was sort of a joke. I mean, I really don’t care what people say, or think, and often times I SHOW people when I have crap in my cart! I don’t want them to think I just eat salads all day long. I want them to know I’m human. I was really just joking in the post. You’re right, everything fits, even ramen!

      Thanks for the info on your carrot cake bites. I will need to give them a go, especially if they’ll last awhile in the fridge 🙂

      And I hope you didn’t think I was being confrontational about the “defending” your purchases just because you are an RD. I honestly didn’t realize you were joking – sometimes tone doesn’t always come across online 🙂
