This Easter long weekend, we didn’t go away anywhere. Instead we made some plans with our friends and it was quite fun.
One day we took the kids to the Easter show.
It was a free event in Cronulla and there were the traditional rides, show bags, an animal farm, market stalls and roving entertainment.
We went on a big slide with the kids on our laps and kids enjoy the elephant merry – go-around as well. They also went into a jumping castle and had heaps of fun.
Chhori and her friend loved getting their face painted and they both looked adorable for sure.
But like every year the highlight for me was the petting zoo. They had alpacas, sheep, chicken, ducks, pigs, goat, rabbits and a calf. It was amazing to see the kids enjoy the animals and pat them too.
We also bought them the bubble guns and it was a hit as they could have hundreds of bubbles instantly.
Overall it was an amazing day out for the parents as well as for the kids.
Another day we took the kids to the park and they had a great time. We had lunch from a nearby café while the kids play at the park.
But the highlight of the Easter long weekend was the food. We planned a food marathon so we had something special for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
On the Friday we went to a sea food buffet and it was really great and we ate a lot. I loved the prawns and the amazing dessert.
Then on Saturday, it started with my scones for breakfast and amazing garlic prawn and chicken paella for dinner.
The next day we had gwaramari for breakfast and typical Nepali thakali thali for dinner.
We tried to make it as close as possible to the famous thakali thali and it contained rice, dal, gundruk ko achar, mula ko achar, chicken curry, saag (spinach) and mushroom curry. The whole combination tasted amazing.
On the third day it was pancakes for breakfast, chatamari and pakauda for lunch and nepali dal-bhaat-tarkari-masu for dinner.
The food was amazing and it didn’t feel like a lot of effort as different people were doing different dishes. But I have to admit, I put on at least a kilo after eating all that food.
I will share the recipes for a few of the dishes soon. Most of them are already on my blog so please do try them and let me know how it goes.
Till next time take care.
