yukon gold fever

the march issue of Bon Appétit Magazine featured a recipe for cinnamon rolls using yukon gold potatoes. the picture looked mouthwatering so i decided to try them out.

overall verdict....definitely worth the time and preparation. the recipe says it makes 12 cinnamon rolls, but i ended up getting around 3-4 dozen and they were very thick. the potatoes make the dough moist and tender. you can't even tell that half the dough is potatoes. once they came out of the oven, they had disappeared that quick. i will definitely make those again!

byu vs. sdsu

brigham basketball had a game this week down at san diego state. their campus is amazing. our original tickets were way up in the nosebleeds, but i couldn't resist the chair seats in san diego's aztec territory. we were pretty much the only cougars in that area. needless to say, i lost my voice to my screaming and was beat the end of the night. 

highlights of the game....

a) getting offered red vines from a bunch of smiling aztec students....i'm pretty sure they were tainted with something. what did they think i was born yesterday? i declined.

b) getting offered $1.00 from some guy to lower the tone of my scream because the aztecs were getting tired of hearing it. i told him to keep his money....i just got louder. 

c) watching byu win, and watching all the aztecs leave the game before it was over. 

loved the game and loved the outcome. GO COUGARS! 



just found out i'm a new employee of a brand new williams-sonoma! can't wait!
