my  friend was coming over for lunch and I didn’t have much time to fix something so I threw this in a pot and I was pleasently surprised by how delicious it was!! well I guess I used 2 pots to make some garlic rice- yum my favorite! A family that I ate with on my mission would make this garlic rice that I died over every time! They make it a lot in brazil…so I guess it’s not Indian to go with this dish but you can add garlic to about anything right? The recipe for this delicious garlic rice will be coming soon!!

Happy Valentines day <3

photo 1-11

I celebrated Valentines day in Utah this year with 2 dates in 1 day. I have never had a valentine, so this was a big deal haha! The funniest part was that they were both named Jared…what are the chances?! But at least I didn’t have to get confused 🙂 Don’t be thinking I’m a player- I was set up on both of these dates… I guess that means you are getting old when you get set up on 2 dates in one day! All I will say is that they were both very entertaining- one was actually hilarious. If you would like to hear the story you can email me 😉
