christmas cheer

24 Dec

i work with some fabulous women. i had a few of these women over to my house on saturday night for dinner.  i made this lasagna recipe and it was fantastic. i’ve never made lasagna from scratch (and was tempted to pick up stouffer’s about half way through my grocery store run) but there was not a lot of kitchen labor. maybe 10 or so more minutes than spaghetti for prep. i stayed pretty true to the recipe this time but i’ll confess, i didn’t grate fresh nutmeg into my ricotta as recommended. but i think it was still a success. here are a few pictures:

shawnta, alex, and tanyika. alex is showing off my peppermint bark. i guess she liked it?

i’m wearing turquoise tights in this picture and i wish you could see them. tights are my absolute favorite part of winter and i wish colored tights were in style every year.
