    Damn Jessica! You just planned my dinners for the next couple months! I’m drooling here!!! And the lasagna cups are a cool idea for a standing dinner party … yay!

      tell me more about this “standing” dinner party!

    • http://www.area17.com George Eid

      Oh like half party party half dinner party … too many people to sit around a table kinda thang. Here in France we got something called an “apero dinatoire” which is somewhere between an “apero” and “dinner”. An apero is the drink you have before dinner (if ya didn’t know) and often you get invited to someones house for just an apero (then you get booted before dinner with their more favorable friends, bastards!) … but if they say it is an apero dinatoire then you know you’ll be standing, drinking and nibbling on yummy finger foods, making it possible to skip dinner altogether and drink massive amounts of vino into the weee hours of the night. So for my next apero dinatoire (oh la la so chic) I’m gonna impress my French comrades with LASAGNA CUPS!!
