Eat your way thru May!

Sticky Toffee Pudding! 
The name says it all. What it doesn't say is "made with dates". 
After having it on our anniversary date night and then seeing it on my cyber-friend's blog, we decided to try our hand at it on our actual anniversary. And gosh and by jolly it was good! It was delicious. It was rich. It was sticky! Emily even ate half of one. Then she asked "what is in this?", her famous last words! Then she stopped eating it.
 After 18 months of not loving my Blackberry, Kerry and I took the leap to the iphone. I felt bad for him and his new, but very old, basic cell phone with no bells and whistles. Now he's in this century and loving it. And yes, that's 92 emails I have.
 I took the boys out to an area that I wanted to check out for future photo shoots. They were fairly accommodating.
 He's not as easy to command with the camera as Sally is but she doesn't want to go out as much as she used to.

 For Mother's Day, I got to pick dinner, and the kids and Kerry made it. After hearing my co-worker rant about currywurst, bratwurst with a ketchup curry sauce, I decided that's what we'd have. And crispy fries with garlic aioli! I made the sauces.
 We went with two types of brats, I liked the Thuringia, but just about everyone else liked the Guinness ones.

 I used all my curry, and got to the point where I couldn't even taste it anymore. The sauce went over so well, makes me want to make different flavoured ketchup for other things.
 Allergy season is knocking Emily out this year. She's sneezy, dopey, grumpy, just 3 of the 7 dwarves, but that's 3 too many.
 Kerry took the following pictures for Mother's Day. I'm pretty pleased with them, and the fact I have pictures of me, where I'm not eating, closing my eyes, or showing my muffin top off.

I had a photoshoot this weekend, out in a part of town I'd never been to, took me over 20 minutes to get there and the view was amazing. Unfortunately, I can't share the sweet baby photos.
I have 2 shoots tomorrow and I'll be showing those for sure! It's getting busy and I'm learning everyday!
