A Vintage Birthday Meal, for a Vintage Guy.

original typed

 

Just wanted to wish my vintage guy, a Happy Birthday.  His special birthday request for his 52nd Birthday was his father’s “Pasta alla Guido” recipe. Today,  I had plenty of time to actually take my time while making this lovely meal.  As I took out the hand-typed recipe from my past father-in-law, I really tried to immerse myself in it.  I diced my onions finely, added the garlic, picked the herbs fresh from my garden, added the speck, wine, bouillon, and all the other ingredients, and let this lovely pot of sauce simmer for hours.  It thickened up so beautifully, and had such a depth, I felt as if my father-in-law was there helping me prepare it.  Sometimes, this website is all about creating or linking the connection between food and life.  Creating great moments through the help of food.  Creating lasting memories, so you can hear your friends and family say, “I still remember that pasta sauce from 20 years ago!”.  That my dear friends, are the words I love to hear!

Happy Birthday, Marcel!
