Here we are, home again after almost a week on the road incorporating a mini break, a boarding school pick up and the inaugural Introduction to Sourdough Workshop with Amanda from Home Farm Cabin .
We travelled to a very different part of NSW where there are multiple lanes of traffic, pine forests, wombats, reverse parking, wild mushrooms and the chance of snow. We visited a lot of cafes, bakeries and public toilets, ate some delicious food and of course I found instant new friends and we baked bread together. I will write about the workshop when I collect all of my thoughts and photos but in the meantime, Easter is upon us.
Now it is time to enjoy proper tea and these two very different but equally motivating books.
It is time to bake and eat bread and hot cross buns, naturally.
Although the days are still very warm, it is time to start picking my quinces.
It is also time to catch up with friends and neighbours and light some campfires. There is ABC radio Easter programming to listen to, on the rare occasion that I get to choose the household soundtrack.
If you happen to have a quiet afternoon in your kitchen or perhaps a car trip I also recommend listening to Episode 1 of the podcast A Basket By The Door. It is warm and comforting with a few teary moments along the way. Just perfect for this time of the year I think.
Happy Easter, friends x
