Around here, Mother's Day usually ends up being Wife's Day and Father's Day usually ends up being Husband's Day. Not much action from the boys today, but Clara pulled out all the stops and cooked up a fabulous dinner, including my favorite green lasagna with fresh tomato and basil, and an appetizer of scallops (from Just Food Co-op) sautéed in olive oil, garlic, and fresh rosemary. She even made homemade spinach pasta for the lasagna. Clara is the best! In the photograph above, you can see the beautiful lasagna pan that was a wedding gift from Clara's best college friend Martha. Two weeks from today, on June 29, we will have had that pan for nineteen years. It's one of several wedding gifts that still get regular use around here.
