Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad.
Yesterday (February 13th) was my parents’ 25th anniversary. My brother and I are “throwing” them a party (I say “throwing” because my mom’s actually putting it together; she just wanted the invitations to come from us) on March 19th, but we celebrated this weekend in a low-key but sweet way, I think.
On Saturday night, my brother and I made dinner: baked ziti (above), with Caesar salad and some warm bread/butter on the side. It came out really well! The cheese isn’t burned; the dark stuff that you see is basil sprinkled on top.
Tonight, we presented my parents with a gift that we put together: seven family photos in two nice frames, spanning three generations over the past 25 years.
Both the dinner and the photos made my mom cry, so I think we did something right.
