Tonight’s dinner, in honor of my cousin’s new baby. 🙂
The cousin closest to me in age is my cousin Diane, who lives in Houston now with her Italian husband and three kids. Today she gave birth to the third, a son (their first), whom they named Matthew Francis.
This recipe is hereby named after him; I was going to make this tonight anyway, but when I came back from my swim, I had a text message saying Diane “had been delivered” (love that phrase) of a baby boy.
When I cook, I add the dates I cooked recipes on the recipe page, so I can see how frequently or infrequently I make things. The last time I made this was on Diane and Matthew’s anniversary (Matthew is her husband’s name as well). So this dish has their family written all over.
Baby Matthew won’t be eating this for awhile, but I can image the rest of his family eating…
