Cenone di San Silvestro

I was going to write something nostalgic for 2005, but with all that’s going on in the kitchen for our Cenone di San Silvestro (Italy’s big new year’s eve dinner), 5 minutes allows me only enough time to upload a photo. Those are sea urchins that I’m holding up and we were almost done cracking them open when I thought it would be a great picture to share.
