Hot Cross Buns

One of my favourite traditions over Easter is yummy Hot Cross Buns. And being in Church over the weekend makes it easy to get access to lots and lots of them...

Because of my diet I decided I would have one half as a treat on Good Friday afternoon. When it got round to having it though I thought... these are the type of thing that got me into all the bother in the first place. So I had one bite, and left it at that. I was proud of my restraint.

Next year, when I am at ideal weight I will have a whole one, and I will enjoy every bite.

Meanwhile, check out the picture of teenager buttering lots of hot cross buns ready to feed all the kids who attended the Good Friday workshops. He doesn't even like them so wasn't a bit tempted!
