4 years old

4 candles, 4 years old. We gave Bella a chef's outfit, now she can be just like her dad.

Welsh Rarebit

I made Welsh Rarebit last night. It was really cold outside, snowing a lot, very dark, and this bizarre craving for Welsh Rarebit came over me.

The last time I had Welsh Rarebit I was a little kid, my mom made it for me and my little sister. I loved it back then, it was really good and hot and cheesy and poured over crispy cubes of warm toast, yum.

I used Alton Brown's recipe which called for a half cup of Porter beer, and that really elevated the flavor. Mom never put beer in her Welsh Rarebit.

The Welsh Rarebit was delicious and really hit the spot, a stick-to-your-ribs, perfect winter's night meal. Damn it was good, and best of all was it was everything I remembered about it, except it wasn't mom who made it.

This is what I do when it's dark, cold and snowing outside.

I was having fun light-painting, long exposure times and "painting" parts of the image with a flashlight. Not bad for a first attempt. I managed to create a nice mysterious shadow without over-lighting the statue.
