WIAW #13 Easter Treats

Easter was a long weekend off work filled with family, friends and food. The perfect way to spend a bank holiday weekend. As I normally do my What I ate Wednesday posts on Monday, you get to see the naughtier food I eat when it is a special occasion. When I am not going to work, I don't mind not eating peanut butter and banana for breakfast as it doesn't matter if I need to search out more food. And as it was Easter, a friend had bought over some home made hot cross buns filled with delicious fruit and covered in (a very sticky) jam glaze. For me, the only way to eat these is toasted with butter.
As I wasn't home or at work for lunch, I went to a pub with a friend for a sandwich. Although I was warned of the size, I was not expecting to be stuffed after sharing just one plate of food. We ordered a classic ham and mustard sandwich, and was amazed at the meat being more like gammon. We ordered chips with it, which I had a few of, but mainly enjoyed the salad with it which came with a honey and mustard dressing.
I had a quick afternoon snack of a pear to keep me going until dinner.

For dinner, I had lots of veggies in the fridge and I find the best way to use those up when I have time is to make a ratatouille. I put in peppers, onions, aubergine, courgette and tomatoes. I made a large batch to have in different ways throughout the week, but had it with some baked eggs, cheese and broccoli for dinner.

 I had an evening drink of a glass of wine as it was opened over the weekend and needed using....Or that's what I'm telling myself anyway ;) My evening snack was Easter related and one of my favourite chocolates...the Lindt milk chocolate egg. They are like heaven with a soft almost gooey centre and rich milky chocolate. Yum
Did you have any amazing Easter treats this year?
