Spring in the Air ??
I can almost feel Spring is about to peak its' nose out of the Winter clothing... even if it's still cold outside - I can smell the Earth waking up... I love that smell as it always reminds me of the end of school - even if I'm too old to be going to school now ;)
The tulips are about to blossom in my garden but in the meantime, I bought myself some lovely tulips to enjoy while waiting and they look just gorgeous to me !!
Easter is not far away so I decided to try to make a traditional french "Brioche" the other day which turned out really nicely and was eaten up by my husband in just 2 days (FYI, there were 600 gr of wheat and 5 eggs plus all the rest !! ). I'll do this traditional Brioche again for Easter as my tradition since forever isn't as appealing as it used to be - yep, my tradition is to eat a whole Chocolate Easter Egg (no smaller than 500 grams will do to make my Easter come :)) for breakfast. I'm just not such a sweet-toothe anymore I guess but it's a great excuse to pig out for a day or two, don't you think ?
