Views from the Back Porch

I was watching the view out our back windows this evening and got inspired to try to capture a little bit of the sunset with my camera. It was a great opportunity to use my telephoto lens.  

The sunset through the branches of a tree in our backyard.

A bright contrail highlighted by the light of the sunset.

Another recipe...

Last weekend I tried out a recipe from the newspaper that piqued my curiosity. It's called Chocolate Chai Pudding, and, yes, it's very tasty! It's basically a home-made microwave pudding, with an added step of steeping chai tea in the milk. The result was a nice chocolate pudding with the spicy taste that you would normally enjoy in your chai tea. It would be easy to make variations on this recipe. Here's a link to it:

A Knitting Project

I've never blogged about my knitting projects... but here's one I just finished. It's from a cute book I got called Knit and Purl Pets. I thought the projects looked fun and that they would be good things to give away. I just finished my first one, this cute little dog. It took me a while to finish it, but it was a fun project!
