Holiday Extravaganzas

I hosted some of my family for a holiday dinner and gift exchange again this year. My previous time had been just after I started working, and when I had a lot more time to prepare. This year, the end of year rush left no time to prepare a huge vat of sauce and meatballs to accompany a big pan of ziti, so I instead bought a spiral cut ham from Trader Joe’s and made a pot of mac & cheese. But the girls started off the day with brunch at Farmacia, before taking in our yearly Nutcracker viewing. Below, the day in pictures:
