girls night!

I’ve been a part of Pastor Mike Doyle’s Tuesday night Bible study since July of last year.  I feel like I’ve grown a lot in my time there and have really met some amazing people.  Finally, after a lot of talking about it, us girls got together for dinner and fellowship on Saturday night.  We probably had too much fun.  I made lasagna, Tara brought salad, and Amber…. Amber brought the bread from Balthazar and the cupcakes from Crumbs.  This is just one of the many reasons we love Amber.  We ate, Tori played the guitar and we sang worship songs, and we talked. A lot. (Hey, we’re girls… it’s just what we DO, okay?)  We decided that it’s going to be a monthly thing and frankly, we can’t wait till next month! (Mark your calendars, ladies: APRIL 24!)

Sunday Tori accompanied me to church, Amber went to her church and the three of us met up afterwards for more quality time.  We got lunch at Chipotle in Union Square, headed back out to Queens to grab the guitar, headed to midtown east for Aroma Coffee (you’ve gotta try it) and finally, we ended the evening with Sunday night prayer & worship.  Our prayer meetings are always a really refreshing time and a great way to wrap up the weekend and head into a new week at work.

This week is already coming to a close, which is hard to believe.  Tomorrow is “fake Friday” for me at work, as we have Good Friday off.  I’m thinking I’ll spend some time in Central Park, as it’s supposed to be a beautiful day on Friday.  Then I’ll head to a church service, but I still haven’t decided on where… Hopefully I’ll have another post for you by the end of the weekend.

For now, though, let’s talk lasagna.  The recipe I made can be found HERE.  It’s delicious.  Seriously.  Some photos to prove it to ya:

Needless to say, there are no leftovers. :)  And those cupcakes I told you about? Well, we made sure everyone got to try as many flavors as they wanted:

And a few more photos from the evening:

(I understand that photo of Amber & I is a little awkward… okay, a lot awkward. But I love it.)

I leave you with this:  that lasagna recipe makes a decent amount of extra sauce.  Today, I came home, sliced & halved some zucchini, sauteed it in a bit of olive oil, added some leftover sauce, mixed with whole wheat penna rigate… and VOILA! Dinner:
