Lobster for Christmas! John and I had two giant lobsters for our holiday meal together before we head off for travel.

Homemade pasta accomplished! I made this as the centerpiece for Holiday Potluck.
I did it by following a step-by-step blog recipe with photos, so I’m just going to send you there rather than rewriting. It’s a Mario Batali recipe, for reference.
Picture is pre-oven because I got too caught up with hosting duties and forgot to take a picture when it came out.
This was a I’m-not-feeling-well-and-want-something-comforting-that-doesn’t-involve-going-to-the-store-or-anything-spicy-because-my-tummy-hurts creation.
The orzo here is optional; I cooked it separately for storage reasons and may actually like the soup better without it.
This recipe was really great! Really well-balanced sauce, and the brussels sprouts help fill you up without a lot of calories.
I couldn’t find unfiltered cider at Whole Foods but just used their all-natural one and thought it was fine. I served this with rosemary roasted potatoes, as the recipe suggests. I also used chicken thighs instead of breasts because that’s what we had at home.
One of two ridiculously easy roasted veggie sides I made for Becky’s Danish Christmas party Sunday.
This was a ridiculously easy Weight Watchers recipe. It’s supposed to be with Arctic Char, but the store didn’t have any so I went with similar salmon.
Not really sure why this recipe came together so well, but I really liked it.
