Easter Goodies - Creative Monday Linky

     My family and I have been enjoying the long 4 day Easter holiday weekend. It is good to see several of the favourite decorations that my twin and I always used to decorate our living-room.
   There are also the many Easter goodies that my family and I have been enjoying.  Happily everything turned out delicious:
Escoveitched Fish
        We eat a lot of escoveitched fish at Easter and like it especially with bread.  In a previous post I shared the recipe. It can can be found HERE.


Easter Buns
     Easter buns are oblong shaped buns sold by bakeries across the island. This year we enjoyed the 2 above which were made by Maxfield and Whitfield Bakeries.


Chocolates
     I still have most of the chocolate above.  I have been very good so I share them with my family whenever I have some.
    Our Easter Sunday and Easter Monday lunch - roast chicken with stuffing, curried mutton, rice and peas, potato salad, vegetable salad and baked ripe plantains and rolls.
