Indeed, how did you spend your Easter weekend? Did you enjoy it? Did you have some extra sleep? Did you make anything delicious? How many pounds of chocolate eggs did you consume? Did you catch any chocolate (or at least regular) bunnies?

Sorry for asking so many questions. I’ve missed you. I actually spent my weekend quite nicely. A  lot of lazy hours and some activities – the perfect balance. Importantly, I managed to meet my best friends – the bed and pillows.

Talking about the lazy time, we had a great excuse to be at home. On Wednesday and Thursday we had quite bad storms and ice rains resulted in treacherous road conditions. So, Friday meant to be lazy and cozy. However, on Saturday the weather started to improve, and we even had some activities. Does a car trip to grab some panini (after the gym) count as activities?

The weather on Sunday was even better so we had a lovely two hours walk. Unfortunately, spring has not fully arrived here yet and snow is anticipated next weekend again!

As for cooking, I didn’t make anything special. Well, I guess deviled eggs should be counted as an Easter dish. Besides, I made Asparagus Mimosa, but with a few fabulous twists. The pictures didn’t turn out well so I’ve got to repeat this soon.

And sadly, I didn’t have any chocolate eggs/bunnies this year.

Indeed, on that weekend we were basically having one skillet comfort meals. Be good boys and girls, and I may show you some food soon.

This One-Pot Chicken Mushroom Orzo I made a couple weeks back, and needless to say, it was delicious. Chicken, mushrooms, sweet peas, and some other good things cooked with orzo? That’s an ultimate comfort (but still quite healthy) dish.

Perfect for everyone who still doesn’t fully feel the business week:)

And before I let you go, you should honestly answer how many chocolate (or regular) bunnies did you catch last weekend.

  1. This orzo dish looks so delicious! I did manage to snag a chocolate bunny this year. I haven’t yet eaten a bite of him.

  2. So I didn’t catch any bunnies this year…chocolate or regular. I did however catch several bunnies last year…they were snoozing in my garden and I scared the you-know-what out of them when I came by with my weedeater. Nobunnies were hurt, but it was a wild scene! Onto other news, this orzo dish looks incredible, Ben! You’ve got me wanting orzo…and it’s only 8:00am here. These are some of your best photos yet!
