What are you having? Any family traditions?

Roast leg of Lamb for me. Chargrilled pineapple tart of some description. No chocolate coz I finished it yesterday. Few pints later.

Easter is a big deal here, at least in a secular way. Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Sunday, and Easter Monday are all holidays. And many people also have the Saturday off, so it's a chance to travel. Also an excuse to gorge on food. I don't follow any traditions, but I will usually have roast lamb at least once. Easter eggs are a bit of a rip-off. Most of them are hollow, and really, there are better ways to get a chocolate fix. The big breweries will sell their Easter Brews for a limited time. But I am teetotal.

It's the only time I look forward to ham.

We had roast lamb, Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, peas and roast celeriac (strange flavour but it was very tasty) for main.
Pavlova meringue thing with cream, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries for pud. Adult (party of nine) Easter egg hunt was a hoot although I was too full to eat any of them but I was given a Lindt chocolate bunny to take home with me.
