uy Fawkes Night (AKA Bonfire night) in the UK is one of my favourite days of the year..mulled wine, roasted chestnuts, snuggling in wooly hats and eating hog roast rolls and apple sauce – mmmm …..alas I missed it this year as its not commonly celebrated in the States, however my husband surprised me with a few rocket fireworks and some mulled wine (ahhh)

I had also found a toffee apple in Giant so that made it a little more authentic for us, I’d snapped a few pics of it earlier in the day with some fall color leaves, just the one photo this time!

Yesterday I went for a hike in Prince William National Forest, the leaves were in full colour and it was amazing to walk through the leafy tunnels of red and gold. I gathered up a few leaves and twigs as I walked as we’ve just acquired a macro lens and I was keen to give it a test run! Here are a few snaps….

I’ve been meaning to try out some food photography for a while now, and thought what better time to cook up some treats than Superbowl!

Many people will tell you to be wary of my cooking (especially when I get adventurous with cakes – its never a pleasant culinary experience – trust me!) ….. however I feel I’m slowly redeeming myself in the kitchen.

This morning I went ‘by the book’ and followed all the recipes precisely, and the results were YUMMY!

As this is our first Superbowl as residents of Virginia we rustled up some  scrumptious ‘southern’ comfort food. Nathaniel made his amazingly delicious devilled eggs, and then cheesy meatloaf with fresh green beans and mash.

I took on dessert – fruit topped pavlova and  warm pecan pie with creamy peach ice cream.

Heres a few pics of the goodies to make your mouth water!……

Snow cats…

Wednesday night the heavens opened and showered us with 5-6 inches of fresh snow overnight!

The water and power were cut off for most of the day and night forcing us into a bit of good ol fashioned talking by candlelight.

By morning the sky was blue and the snow was crisp  – perfect conditions for catching the antics of Tom and Fuzzy cat as they clowned around in the white stuff!

Enjoy….

So this is a bit blurry, but had to put it in for entertainment value…..
