Easter food (and chocolate)
« on: April 12, 2020, 08:40:18 PM »
Anyone done anything exciting?

I had one box of chocolates in the house and decided I'd try those. I've had three so far: not for lack of appetite per se, but they're excruciatingly sweet for my tastes, to the point where it's actually offputting, so I've not really done easter chocolate this year :/ Or had energy to make hot cross buns. I should do more baking soon...

Nice work! Just for yourself, or are you cooking for others as well?

I have a flatmate.  :)
Also made a gravy.

The final product (bad light though, it was 1AM):

Thanks!  :)

It was a bit drier than I expected, but the gravy fixed that. The gravy was the best part actually.
But I think it turned out great, especially since this was my first time making this dish.

At least the seasoning was spot on in both cases.
