festival of colors! [sans photos] and new resolutions

i ended up going to festival of colors yesterday.  there's a huge krishna temple in spanish fork, and every year they have a color throwing to celebrate holi... a krishna holiday [i think]. i don't much about the holiday, all i know is you dress in all white, get scented/colored chalk, and throw it on people. it was way fun.  i went with boy, his siblings, and a couple of friends from my old ward.  there were some hilarious times- mostly between us and children [yes, seven or under].

sorry i don't have any pictures, yet.  there all on boy's camera.  but there were some good ones. trust me.

last night i went emergency grocery shopping with boy for the things he needs today: cereal, frozen pizza and pringles. [wow. such a guy.] it made me remember how sad it is to not be able to cook.  so, i decided today that i am going to have a sunday dinner, every sunday, where i make something for reals. so far, i have compiled recipes for mediterranean risotto, my aunt's yummy pasta salad, sausage, chard and lemon lasagna, gruyere and parmesan souffle, backed rigatoni with tiny meatballs, quiche lorraine and chicken tortilla soup. sounds delicious right? i also want to bake desserts that i have never tried- pies, cakes, fudge, chocolate dipped cookies.

so here's to a colorful weekend and a delicious future!
