In my kitchen - April 2011

Inspired by the lovely Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, this is what's been in my kitchen over the month of April. Can't ignore the celebration of Easter and new life and beginnings. I have a whole family of bunny rabbits to celebrate - I love Lindt chocolate and I love the way they colour code their bunnies! 

Easter eggs haven't been forgotten either. I managed to find little eggs in three different sizes this year, which pleased me a disproportionate amount - small things and all that! You can see the three different sizes of yellow egg at the front of the picture. And for those in the UK in order of size from left to right - Tesco micro eggs (but I won't get them again, the chocolate isn't all that nice), Cadbury mini eggs (ah, true love) and Marks and Spencer (yum!). See here and here and even here for more Easter goodies from this year!

And because this post is inspired by Celia how could I resist buying this lovely little side plate with a chicken on it. As soon as I saw it, I thought of you Celia! (To paraphrase a UK post office advertising strapline!) And put to good use below, showcasing an Easter fruit cupcake.

J and I decided that we weren't going to get each other Easter Eggs this year, but I did mention that my wooden spoon had split, and requested a replacement.....

I've already started using one of these, a perfect present! And then finally, not in my kitchen at all, but in the local park and too beautiful to ignore, I love the pink snow under these blossoms.

Looking forward to what May brings to my kitchen.

I am so cross with you right now! All I ask at Easter is a Lindt bunny, and we tried 6 supermarkets, in London, Durham and Hertfordshire and they were all sold out. And it is because you got them all! Outrageous. ;)

It looks like you had a lovely, Spring-like Easter C!

CC, thank you!

Chele - I always love to see what's happening in other people's kitchens!

Foodycat - I'm so sorry you didn't get your Lindt bunny. There seemed to be plenty of them around here, even after Easter (whispers... reduced).

Celia - I'm really pleased you like the plate - I wish I could send it to you!
