Weekend pics...

Oma's egg decorating table. Her activities never disappoint!

Picasso inspired?

The Rider

Oma's delicious fruit flan

Hand-dyed eggs..the light blue one on the right is Violet's - no dyeing required! She kindly lays them blue!

A pizza treat from the garden: potato, rosemary, garlic, bocconcini, olive oil and sea salt. LOTS of sea salt.

Egg hunting. In the soil?

Chocolates by the tweens.

A new discovery - crocheted gift baskets!

Hope you're having a fabulous long weekend!

**Editing to add pizza recipe for floweringmama **

Pizza base made using : 500g bread flour, 2 tsp dried yeast, 1 tsp salt, 1tsp sugar, splash of olive oil, 330mls approx water. Knead all ingredients together until smooth and springy adding more water or flour if required.  Cover with a towel and set aside to rise for 1 -1.5 hours in a warm place. These quantities will make 2 thick or 3 thin based medium pizzas.

For topping, thinly slice about 4-6 smallish clean new potatoes and place into a mixing bowl. Add 1-2 cloves of finely crushed garlic, finely chopped fresh rosemary (2 sprigs), generous splash of good olive oil and coarsly ground sea salt. Mix well to combine. Roll out pizza base and place on oiled tray or preheated baking stone. Add bocconcini (baby mozzarella balls) to base, followed by garlic/potato/herb mixture. Sprinkle with extra sea salt and drizzle with a little extra oil. Bake as desired. (180c for 30mins approx). Enjoy :)

  1. Wonderful... do love the crocheted egg baskets! Wow, that flan looks amazing!

  2. Oma's Flan looks yummy but that pizza devine

  3. Oh that looks like so much fun! Is there any chance at all you could share that pizza recipe?

  4. The crocheted baskets are absolutely gorgeous..did you make them? If so, do you have a pattern that you'd be willing to share?

  5. What a festive weekend! So happy to hear you've been enjoying yourselves, such wonderful family activities! Chocolates look great too - tweens did a fabulous job! I could have a slice of that pizza for lunch right now.. :)

  6. Would it be too imposing to invite myself down to Oma's for some flan, and your place for some pizza?

    Happy end of long weekend end/holidays :-)

  7. The flan was amazing, dixie! We took the leftovers home and polished it all off nicely yesterday!

    Thanks, Joyfulhomemaker, the pizza was very easy to put together and satifsying that the ingredients all came from the garden, excluding the oil and cheese!

    Yep! Have edited post to include recipe, floweringmama :)

    Thanks, tea with hazel. Crochet basket pattern should be up tomorrow ;)

    You got it, Becky!

    Yikes, Celia, I do hope you didn't cringe too much looking at our humble choccies. I know how talented you are in the tempering department. Hubby thought the pizza was a little on the salty side..but it really hit the spot for me!

    Ahh, not at all, dear Bryds! What time shall we expect you? ;) Hope your weekend was a relaxing one.
