How was everyone's Easter / Passover?
We went over to the in-law's for dinner... well when I say dinner I really mean we ate at 3pm so I don't know what you call that. Lunner? Dunch? Weird? I'll never get used to that. Never.
I made Irish soda bread because that's what my MIL asked for. It's got a cross on it... does that count for Easter? Hehe :)
I also made a strawberry trifle as requested. I love to make this. It's simple, it's delicious, and strawberries make me think of my Mum. (I had to cut the sugar on the recipe because it's unbearably sweet otherwise. It could just be me but I figured I'd warn you.)
And I got to try out my new mixer paddle with the scraper and I LOVE IT! It mixes so beautifully! No lumps, very little scraping down on the sides to do... definitely recommend it. (And no, KitchenAid is not paying me to say this! They could if they wanted to... Ahem.)
After dinner we went into the neighbour's yard to visit their alpacas. So. Flippin. Cute. And with the neckerchiefs? Gahhhh cuteness overload!!! It is just me or do alpacas look a little awkward? Their heads don't seem to match their bodies, and their tails look like they have a giant guinea pig stuck to their bums. LOVE!
But then one of them started pooping and peeing with its bum facing us so we took it as a sign to go. Very talented to do both at once though. Bravo.
(He's vacuumed before. I just like to give him shit about it because he so rarely does it hehe)
