Happy Easter Sunday everyone. If you are like me, you probably ate the majority of your egg last night and now wish you had another. I mentioned earlier in the month, that my mum had bought me a Lir Easter Egg this year and I have to say, it is hands down the BEST Easter Egg I have ever tasted. I had the Crispy Caramel one and honestly can’t recommend it enough..I wish I had gotten two and saved one for a lonely day. I’ve popped the link of their website above so you can check out their products. They are another great Irish company so definitely give them a look next time you’re buying a chocolate gift.
I have called this post “Will You Have A Tea?” because my English friends think staying a sentence with the word will is crazy and always comment when I do it. But as today is 100 years since 1916 I think I will do what I want.
This weekend has been a busy one for me. In between studying and you know, lying down, I have managed to make a roast, get my fringe cut back in, bake a Tea Brack or Tea Loaf as they say in England, get a massage, tidy up and get out to the farm shop. The fringe has really been the highlight to be honest as before I got Tabitha (car) I had to cycle everywhere and my fringe just looked a state but now I can drive I can look like me again – hurrah! I got a massage to try and help my arms but my left wrist still isn’t right. My exam is on Tuesday week so am just praying I’ll be able to get through it.
The Tea Loaf is for my cousins as I am going to pop over for Easter tea later on today. The boyfriend and I are having roast chicken at home alone first and trying to get our house in order as we’re actually going to Ireland tomorrow morning and don’t want to come back to a messy house. We are flying into Shannon airport and have a long enough wait there before we can get a bus away so am hoping there’ll be some interesting magazines I can be reading through or at least a nice cup of coffee.
I’m hoping the Tea Loaf will be a welcome break from the chocolate later on and should keep in a tin so they can tuck into it throughout the week. Actually, this would keep about 2 weeks, as long as the brack is in a tin. I have added Ovaltine into this recipe as I like the malted flavour it brings to the party, if you don’t though just leave it out.
