Cannelloni is a labor intensive meal, that takes time to create. While assembling this dish I thought about the history of this dish. I remember when I was about six, my Dad surprising my Mom with dinner for their anniversary and he had made this. Maybe it was the first time he cooked it. I also remember for my 16 birthday I wanted to have a nice dinner with some of my friends. Dad cooked all afternoon and the menu was Cannelloni, salad, and breadsticks.
Me and my Dad, circa 1992, preparing the birthday dinner.
A few things:
1. I remember my friends oohing and aahing over the food.
2. Don't you love my brother Tim at the end of the table?
3. Thanks Dad for sharing your recipe with me.
4. Thanks Mom for taking these pictures.

Cannelloni Then and Now
Our March celebrations continue. Tuesday we celebrated our 14 wedding anniversary! Yes, 14 years. I can't imagine my life without Aaron and the boys. I am still so very happy that I married Aaron! Since we married when I was 19, in a way Aaron and I have grown up together. I would not have had it any other way!
