Set fire to the rain *

The weather is terrible today. It’s finally feeling like winter, though. We have had very mild weather through December and the first week of January (with some snow and rain) but today it’s been freezing rain! I had a half inch thickness of ice to scrape off my car’s windows at 6 am. When I finished work at 11:30 am, I had to scrape another layer off. Stopped at Loblaws on the way home for hair conditioner and ended up buying some chocolate and caramel sauces to use with my Tassimo coffees. I attempted to make a caramel macchiato and it turned out great!


Caramel macchiato (Tassimo)


If you want to make one, it’s very easy! First squeeze a layer of caramel on the bottom of the mug. Then use a latte milk T-disc, followed by an espresso T-disc. (I added a little bit of sugar because I find the espresso very strong.) Then added more caramel on top. Voila! Enjoy your yummy drink!

On Tuesday I had a doctor’s appointment and then some blood work. Afterward I drove over to Kendra’s and chatted with her for awhile. Baby Hannah slept most of the time, though. She’s getting big; hard to believe she’s two months old already. And then made my way over to Stacey’s and snuggled her baby Hannah the whole time.

I spent most of Wednesday cooking and preparing for that night’s dinner. I had my dad, Keesje & Luc, and Ashe over. There was a lot of food and most of it was eaten. In the slow cooker, I made a pork tenderloin stew with lots of veggies and garlic. And for sides, I made cold pasta salad and cheesy scalloped potatoes with carrots (cayenne pepper gives that dish a nice kick).

Those last three photos of my nephew were taken with my Canon 60D. I am in love with my new camera! 🙂
