As promised I share with you today my photo diary of Greek Easter lunch 2013. Each year we celebrate Easter at home by having our family and friends over for a big lunch which turns into a whole day of gorging on amazing food. Weirdly, Greek Easter fell six weeks after Catholic Easter this year. I was hoping there would be less chocolate eggs to tempt myself with but unfortunately mounds of it still made their way into our house and I am hoping my brothers and sister devour it all before I get a chocolate craving. If this post isn’t enough, you can check out my Easter post from two years ago as well here.
