A beautiful snow (and ice) covered evening in Corvallis, Oregon was the perfect opportunity to go out and play. :-) I have always loved the snow, and this evening was amazing. Just like being a kid outside until late. Only, difference is the lights froze much easier than the old hot little lights I remember, and every one of them was like a little crystal work of art.

...with chocolate syrup!
This is another shot from Saturday, for those
of you who like a little chocolate syrup!
Apparently there is some debate about the spelling of the word "Caramel." My wife found a few arguments online for Carmel (Just in writing this I spelled it both ways, that is why the question came up.) But, Carmel does not seem to hold up in the dictionaries. And there was one particularly snotty person somewhere telling about his wife the English PHD who had never heard of a word "Carmel." Perhaps it's not English, but they should look into the names of a few cities and mountain ranges. And my favorite, north of here near the city of Carmel there is a river called the Carmel river. If that doesn't sound like a place right out if Willy-Wonka's factory you need to work on your imagination!
I can only think of what my favorite TV Chef would say... No matter how you spell it, its "Good Eats!"

Today I tried to get away from my computer a bit. I love cooking and I have been finding some fun opportunities in food photography. Pity, now I need to practice! After cooking and shooting several things my wife was making something else in the kitchen that resulted in some leftover syrup in the pan. I love caramel and she suggested making some. This ended up being the most fun dish we made and it was totally spontaneous.
