I celebrated Guy Fawkes Day with fellow Los Angeles transplant Lauryn on Saturday Night. While I passed on the discoveries that took me months to make (I wonder how long I would have gone not knowing how genius it is to layer pairs and pairs of thin tights for warmth if an old pal hadn't passed on the advice early on), we spent the chilly evening in her cozy new house and under the stars around a bonfire with delicious food. Alika made an amazing shepherd's pie, much of the process is demonstrated below. Other goodies included a macaroni & cheese dish with breadcrumbs which really hit the spot, some really yummy sausages and pumpkin pie I didn't try.
