sweet potato chips, homemade balsamic honey dressing, and a dodecahedron.

I have had the perfect Sunday.

I woke up, drank some coffee, and graded for a couple hours. Then I went on a long run and when I came home I decided I wanted to participate in the extra credit assignment I gave my students. They just learned about platonic solids (LOVE) and I told them to construct either a dodecahedron or an icosahedron out of cardboard, straws, whatever.

I made a vinyl bean-bag dodecahedron (pictured above as well):

The construction was unplanned and went something like this:

(If you are unfamiliar with the platonic solids, below is an image of the dodecahedron)

Then I made some balsamic honey salad dressing (1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, 1/4 olive oil, 1/4 cup honey, 1 tsp soy sauce, 1 tsp stone ground mustard). Homemade dressings are so yummy.

And I made some sweet potato "chips" in the oven. My dinner didn't make any sense (salad and chips?), but both were good.
