Cozy Dinner for a Cozy Winter’s Night

Friends are coming for dinner tonight! It’s warmer than usual today; though I can’t help but think of summer with these colors, the meal is most certainly meant to warm us up (Baked Rigatoni with Prosciutto-Fontina Bechamel ala Giada De Laurentiis). This is not a low-cal meal, but still fits in with our Plan. I’ve been power walking like a madwoman this week to have this treat!

Table setting includes Mikasa Italian Countryside (ivory), Pfaltzgraff Yorktowne (blue and white stoneware gratin dishes (shown in last photo) and bread basket), and Indiana Glass King’s Crown Thumbprint glassware in Bicentennial Blue.

The flowers are part of a lovely bouquet from my husband on Valentine’s Day – he knows I love lilies.  Vase is an antique store find. 🙂

Wine bottle candles are left over from our wedding. We use them all the time!
