Hope you all enjoyed your day(s) of Feast, Family and Fête.

 We escaped the Big Apple right before the Big Arctic Blast of 2013 

and just made it back to the relatively warmer PNW!

So, let’s just keep riding this cold weather comfort food train!

Rich, nutty and kinda stinky (in a good way) Fontina cheese covered Conchiglie, 

topped with spicy toasted pumpkin seeds.

Damn classy.

Fontina shells

Also on today’s menu:

Fusilli, alla Bolognese

Tagliatelle, with Basil, Mint and Parsley Pesto
