Sponsored Video: Celebrating a delicious British Easter with Sainburys

March 31, 2015

How do you celebrate Easter? Do you have an easter egg hunt for the little ones, get busy in the kitchen baking or making any special dishes, have the family over for a big Easter Sunday lunch or just gorge on bucket loads of choccie? Personally I just relish in it being one of my favourite holidays of the year, no pressures to organise, purchase and cook like christmas. Not as long nor as hot as the summer hols. Two weeks of lie ins plus usually some pretty decent weather and a couple of bank holidays to boot.

For us it’s a holiday of staying at home, keeping our ‘jamas on for as long as is decent, leisurely breakies, maybe even a sneakie morning movie, picnics, bike rides, doggie walks, no doubt lots of mud, maybe a hill walk, day trips out, relatives, friends, fun. Hopefully lots of baking thrown in too. And there’s always a special family get together meal on Easter Sunday, probably lamb, and spent with my Mum and Dad and as many of my brothers as we can get (I’ve three!). This year I think they’ll be nine of us in total, and I can’t wait. And of course they’ll be easter egg hunts, we’ll be taking part in local charity, St Michael’s Hospice, ‘Easter Bunny Trail‘ around Hereford this year. Organised by a teacher at the children’s school in memory of Jacques’s best friend at school Lucus’s Mum who tragically died of breast cancer just before he started school last August. They’ll also be a choccie hunt with our neighbours and I’ve my eye on the one at nearby National Trust Croft Castle too.

What does Easter mean to you? Do watch the fab little video clip above from Sainburys, it really does say it all.

As for Easter recipes I was a bit alarmed to find I only have one Easter-centric recipe on my blog, Fruity Easter Biscuits, a fun little make for the little ones and as biccies go are a tad healthier than the norm. But if you’re after something a little more naughty or a little more chocolatey then do check out these gems I’ve found for you from across the blogosphere:
