My First Homemade Pie

Recently I had the opportunity to bake an apple pie with homemade pastry and real filling, and let me tell you it was worth the effort!  The ladies at work and I planned an afternoon to make pie together, drink wine, watch Magic Mike and just enjoy each others company outside of work. It was a lovely evening and I got to bring home a delicious apple pie that I made from scratch - and then promptly ate it with Luke for dinner :)

Also, I want to explain that I haven't been posting in the last couple of weeks because blogger is experiencing a glitch or something...  I can't upload photos to my blog anymore without first re-sizing them so that pixel count is low enough to be considered 'free' toward my storage limit.  Anyway, I waited for a while to see if the issue would go away but it hasn't. Luckily, I found a work around by visiting some help forums, apparently lots of people are having this problem.

Anyway, it takes me longer to make posts now, but I'm not going to let that deter me :)  In fact, I have quite a back log of posts that I can't wait to put up. Stay tuned!

Luke's Delicious Curry

 Yep, I have an amazing boyfriend! He made this curry from scratch and it tastes even more delicious than it looks.  It has real lemon grass in it, which makes the house smell wonderful for the rest of the night. This version had bok choy, sweet potato, shrimp, mushrooms and white potato, with lots of lemon grass, red curry and coconut milk of course. It's a hot and hearty meal, perfect for the approaching winter season.

Views from the Plane

I recently went to Southport, Manitoba on a work-related trip, here is my first batch of pictures that document my journey. This was my first 'business' trip and needless to say, I was super excited! I was able to get some lovely pictures of the Rockies peaking through the clouds, as well as some great pics of the snow covered prairies.
