At long last!
By my reckoning it is 101 days since Hot Cross Buns came into the shops in Melbourne.
I had three today, having patiently waited until the 'right' time.
"Right time?" (I hear you ask) "But you are an atheist!"
Yes, but I am also someone who likes nice food and likes tradition. So I like to eat hot cross buns at the right time. The same way I prefer to wait until Christmas for the local strawberries to ripen rather that forking out for the insipid hydroponic glasshouse variety that seem to be one of life's more expensive ways to buy water, even if they are available all year round.
Will it be 365 days until my next hot cross bun?
No, probably not; you see there are a few that have not been eated and they may, may, still be around in the morning. Left overs are fair game. (But freezing them is cheating.)
Next comes Sunday and the chocolate eggs...
