Need some colour...GO ORGANIC
I'm always a little
reluctant to bring out Hot Cross Buns and Easter treats early, much to my
children's disgust. In our home, Hot Cross Buns are saved for the Easter
period in an important tradition that the kids look forward to. Rituals
and traditions are the backbones that bind communities and families and
interestingly the world over, they are usually formed around food and meals.
You see every culture in the world uses special foods to mark special
occasions and celebrate its significance in their lives. Its these
important traditions that over time have brought people together to bake, stir
and cook with a common goal of celebrating life by creating foods that nourish
the soul as much as the body.
In Australia we are
so blessed with so many different cultures with so many rituals, that we can
celebrate life with the people we love irrespective of our religious
denominations by creating our own family rituals, one's that can be passed on
for generations to come. Even better your can re-establish your own
families rituals as simplistic as they may have been, they are so
This week, we are all
about Easter, I know a tad early, but this gives you an opportunity to get
organised. Bake some of your own Hot Cross Buns-in a ritual everyone
around you will love... or try your hand at creating your own easter treats.
