Here's the town landing, where we park and begin our walk. With daylight fading I liked how the lit tree stood out against the fresh cover of white. Henri reminded me it was snowing and not good for the camera.
As we continued on our walk I sheltered my camera inside my coat from the falling snow and when Henri wasn't looking I quickly pulled it out to try and capture a scene or two. On this image, I used a sepia tone effect which I think helps to highlight the falling snow.
One more that I took. I couldn't help it. Don't tell Henri though. He keeps telling me how bad moisture is for a camera. But in my defense, the snow let up for this one.
So anyway, back at home, Henri knew he was in store for a treat. This is a "care package" of sorts that his Mother sent, because I mentioned to her the other day he was craving Indonesian food. Henri was born in Djakarta, Indonesia. I was born in Maine, yet I was craving it too.
This is his Mother's recipe of Nasi Kuning (yellow rice) and some of the ingredients that I used to make it for him.
Lucky for me, my rice cooker makes cooking it a breeze.
Suet for the woodpeckers outside.
Inside, Nasi Kuning covered with stinky, salty fish for us.
The fish really are stinky too. For the first 15 years of our marriage I would make Henri eat them outside, until one day I got the nerve to try them and I couldn't believe what I had been missing! Besides it's just way too cold to eat outside this time of year.
