Once on a Holy Tuesday
Koulourakia baking time.
Got all the gang together plus two of their friends and made about a hundred easter cookies. Some for us and some for them and some for Vaso who has broken her arm and can't (mustn't) make easter cookies this year because her sister just died and some for my s-in-law and so on
I gave them the recipe and they just got on with it, weighing out all the ingredients, using the big heavy mixer, squeezing and zesting the oranges, and so on
If you're the shortest in the family then you climb up on the bench
The three boys dug the garden and I forgot to get a photo of them hard at work. They carried tables, shifted pot plants, weeded the cactus and so ..... back to the computer
Easter koulourakia in the making
I was going to make the boys do this but the girls insisted they wanted to. Shoes off, water on and the fun begins. They cleaned the tiles and then six small rugs. The rugs were scrubbed and hung over the railings to dry
Vaso called us to come and receive some bounty. Lettuces, spring onions and dill fresh from her garden. These are all essential in the next few days for preparing the easter feast.
And that was Holy Tuesday.
