Count Down To The Festival Of Lights - Part 1

Have you heard about Destination Imagination? It is an amazing way to instill creativity in young minds. I volunteered again this year to manage a team for Riya's grade. We made sure it was an all girls team. Go Girl Power!

While the girls thought through various mythological characters for their Destination Imagination project, I made coconut burfis for Diwali and the girls gladly volunteered to be my official tasters. Tomorrow I plan to take a few to my team at work.

But that's it guys, the reminder of the sweets and snacks will be courtesy the Indian stores or sweet stalls. I ingest way too many calories in the pretext of tasting, to get it right. Not worth it and I know there is a word out there in the dictionary that means self-control. I just can't seem to practice it, if I am in the vicinity of the object of my liking.

I am linking it to Patty's Weekend Party. Its always fun to jump into her virtual parties.
