Some days it’s worth stepping out my front door.

My first taste of icewine was just a few days ago, as I sat in a restaurant overlooking Niagara Falls.  The restaurant sold it by the ounce.  It’s very sweet, so it’s perfect for a dessert wine.  Just the name alone makes me feel like I’m tasting a bit of history.  Sipping it while gazing out at one of the wonders of the world made the moment even sweeter.

At the very back of our yard sits another pond.  After such a long winter, it is finally coming back to life.  I love the sound.

First time in years that I made my own cake.  Well it’s from a box cake, but it’s a black velvet cake with some sort of cream cheese frosting.  I even used my heart-shaped cake pans for the occasion.

It had expired back in December, so I’m wondering if that’s why it wound up being more condensed like a brownie, rather than a cake.  Oh well, it still tasted good, even if it looked lame and was on a Christmas plate.

Today is John’s birthday but last night we decided to have a little picnic on the deck.
This may look cold and dreary to some, but for my hubby and me, this was almost like paradise.  It was 57 degrees, almost all the snow has melted, and the frogs have finally begun to sing again in our pond.

And now for the downside of winter storms.  The power went out at least 2 times during my shower.  Currently it seems to be off indefinitely.

Turkey roll leftovers from 2 nights ago; pureed with cherry tomatoes, mayonnaise and sriracha.  It was then microwaved between two pieces of low-fat Colby cheese and a hamburger bun.
I call it the “Sloppy No”.

I decided on the blueberry flavor.  I also decided on preparing my tea in a more unorthodox way.  That way, more tea for me!
