Today I woke up with aches and pain on my shoulders. Like I had physically worked out at the gym! Since I have not been anywhere near a gym in the last ,....... well lets just say its been a while I kept wondering why I had these pains.
I thought back to the day before and then remembered that my son insisted we play horses. Yes I of course had to be the horse! His reasoning that he was too small to be a horse and therefore I had to be. If you told me 10 years ago I would be being pulled by my hoody strings on my jumper by a 4 year old around the house whilst on hands and knees saying neigh, I would have told you, you’ve got rocks in your head! But alas here I was doing exactly that. On protesting I had enough I was told horses don’t talk and they only say neigh, and was then instructed to eat hay and then sleep. Great -Sleep, I was good with that. Shame it only lasted 30 seconds before I was woken up by my master and expected to take him for a ride. The only thing that kept me from screaming, Enough was the beautiful smile and laughter I saw in his face. I guess sometimes we just have to be horses for the ones we love!
Any how I eventually convinced him we had to switch roles and he could be the pony. I had to clean the stables, and we had to make food for horsey to eat.
Furthermore since he was such a good pony, we could have a treat.
So getting to the cooking part of this blog and with Easter just round the corner it is our family tradition to make some hot cross buns. Light and fluffy sweet bread with sultanas topped with strawberry jam and whipped coconut cream!!! Mmm
Although easy to make they do take a while due to the waiting time to rise. But all worth it in the end!
Im sure you will love them .. And so will all the Horses and Ponys.
Wishing you a happy Easter And Happy baking
