We had such a great time this weekend, with great friends. Lucas had a blast. We had some friends that are from Brazil but live in New Orleans that came to spend Easter with us. Lucas and his 3 friends played all day long.
Friday we had a traditional Brazilian dinner. It is a tradition in Brazil to eat Cod Fish on Good Friday. We have in Brazil a salted dried Cod Fish that I could not find here in USA, so I used regular fresh Cod Fish instead.
Here is the recipe:
200gr black olives
1,5kg Cod Fish
2 Green Peppers
Slice the potato, tomato, onion, green pepper and green onions. Boil the potatoes with a little bit of salt for 15 min. Season your Cod Fish with salt. Make some layers starting with your potato, Cod Fish, onion, green onion, green pepper and olives.
Put lots of olive oil on top of it, cover with aluminum foil and bake it for 45 min at 360 degree. Serve with white rice and enjoy it.
Hummm it was delicious. Tasted just like home!!!
Saturday morning we went egg hunting with the kids. We had lots of eggs to hunt all over the place. I loved to see the kids face every time they found an egg. there is nothing better than seeing a smile in a kids face!!!
On Sunday, Mr. Bunny came to visit and left us our Easter Basket and our Brazilian Chocolate Eggs.
Lucas' chocolate egg was almost his size. He loved it. He ate way tooooooooooo much chocolate and we did too. Those big chocolate eggs are our tradition in Brazil. Mr Bunny brings us those chocolates eggs in different sizes, taste, and color. Some will come with small chocolate inside, some with truffle and others with toys.....and they all taste soooo good!!!
