Last weekend was about Easter so I traveled home to Szeged. I was lucky to catch the blooming of magnolia trees at Széchenyi Square. This is a spot that everyone knows in town. It is basically the center of the city. Here you will find the Town Hall, a smaller park where you can walk to, sit down and relax (especially spring and summer time).
Szeged is the third largest city of Hungary, the largest city and regional centre of the Southern Great Plain. The town is famous of its paprika, the Pick salami, the fish soup, the university, river Tisza, the Open Air Theatre (they are held every summer) and the Cathedral.
Let’s see the crumbs…
My mom baked her famous kalács (the best one in the world!)… Kalács can be made for any holiday, but it has the most symbolism on Easter.
I took so many photos of the kalács and the eggs…
Would you like a nice cup of cappuccino?
Breakfast in bed. I don’t remember when we had something similar last time but we deserved it. That’s for sure! When did you have breakfast in bed last time?
Of course I baked during the long weekend. Instead of a cake I baked vegan almond, coconut and chocolate cupcakes for I.’s birthday. This was the first time I made vegan frosting and we loved it so much.
We started doing the gardening too in our small parcel in the community garden. We planted squash, zucchini, Swiss chard, carrot, radish, green bean, dill, coriander and garlic seeds. We’ll also have rhubarb, tomato and green pepper seedlings soon. I. and I are so excited to have a tiny space in the city where we can relax and have some time with mother nature.
Every spring I fell in love with the pink blossoming… I stand under a tree like this for 5 minutes and thank for her (yes, her!) for being so beautiful. 🙂
