117: goodbye, jerkface

One of Tim’s friends is leaving Yellowknife for a house he bought in Nova Scotia, so yesterday we baked him a cake (filled with rum) and went out for dinner at a local burger bar.

(and in case you are wondering, the blue icing on the side is a bunch of penises)

Dinner in Chez Baker is always a bit of an ordeal.  We both like to cook, but don’t really enjoy cooking alone as much as we enjoy cooking for others.  So when one of us is visiting (in this case, I’m visiting) …we make it a bit of a big deal.  Tonight’s menu was grilled asparagus and peppers, homemade hummus, crackers/cheese/olives/pickles, fresh salad, and the remainder of our wine from the previous night.

111 + 112: no pew, no camera, and a dinner

I lied.  No video, because I shouldn’t be uploading firearms videos to my blog.  In which case, I missed 111, because I forgot my camera and I didn’t take any photos with my iPhone either.  I’m sorry about all the shittiness lately, I’ve been taking naps in the evening and waking up in the middle of the night to try and get aurora (northern lights) shots lately, but every night when I wake up at midnight-or 2am the aurora hasn’t been great, and it’s really messing with my sleep to sleep like this.  Anyhow…

…here’s 112:

Dinner last night.

101: lavender syrup!

Trying my hand at food photography.  It’s tough work!  I made some lavender simply syrup earlier today (1:1 sugar: water, handful of dried lavender blossoms) …and it’s delicious.  Not only that, I’m perpetually impressed by the colour, which is why I thought I’d try to photograph it.

How all those food blogs do it, I’ve no idea.  These were the best ones I got…

083: muffins!

I had a bonfire until really late last night (2:30) and I didn’t post this before midnight, so I decided to just wait until morning.  I suppose I could have taken fire shots, but….meh.
