Wedding work frolic planned; sister promises eggs to help make wedding noodles

Today, 17 years ago, our oldest son was born to us after having three daughters. I remember seeing the look on my husband Joe’s face when he told me, “It’s a boy!” He loved his daughters too, but he was excited to have a son. Benjamin was only 4 pounds 13 ounces at birth and caught the flu at a few weeks old. He ended up in the hospital and went down to 4 pounds. He was just a tiny baby, but now he is far from that. We will give him a tool chest on wheels with various tools tonight. He enjoys working with tools and doing construction work.

Try the chicken version below, and pair it with one of the three wines. If you’d prefer to drink something you already have on hand, look for a medium- to full-bodied white with similar characteristics, such as citrus to play off the lime in the dish.
