I was so excited about our first day with our new nephew, that I forgot to photograph dinner! (Salad and this delicious little nugget excepted.)

What we had was Spaghetti alla Norma (with tomatoes and eggplant), a recipe my dad clipped from the New York Times. Morgan is a seriously committed Times recipe clipper. And that kale salad that only my sister Anna seems able to make properly. It was all delicious, but really, we would have just as happily eaten dirt. We’re so overjoyed about this baby that it eclipses everything else.
