I have been thinking a lot about color lately. Well, really I always think a lot about color. I design things for a living. I think a lot about fonts, layout, and correct spelling as well.
I made purple potatoes for dinner.
If you have not had purple potatoes, you should. As soon as possible. They are literally ten times better than normal potatoes. Plus, they keep their color after you cook them, which is just fun. I also made a version of coq au vin so the entire dinner was really quite purple. I say a "version" because I wikipediaed coq au vin, and I don't use old rooster.
We also colored Easter eggs today. We like the old fashioned, no frills dye. Funny how it never gets old. The little pills dissolving in the vinegar, like so many circus bound Alka-seltzer, and the same sugary combinations of colors marked with little smudgy finger prints that you can never quite avoid. Hours of fun, and not really that much mess or clean up. My kind of art project. My 8 year old seemed to like it too.
