"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
My Great Aunt Peg gave me this recipe in 1968, but I cannot recall why or where this happened. She thought she was a wonderful cook and I remember the truly tasty Southern Fried Chicken she would prepare for us when we visited her and Uncle Jim in Washington D.C. (They lived in Arlington, VA.)

They had a parakeet named “Butchie” that had free-range of their house. Butchie had a whole playground of toys behind one of their chairs in the living room. He would perch on the bathroom mirror in the morning to watch while anyone brushed their teeth and ask: “What-chi doing?” This really freaked out my friend, Rosemary, when we visited them when we were in high school. I thought it was normal!
