Note: this photo was published, on the same day that I uploaded it to Flickr, as an illustration in an undated (Feb 2010) Squidoo blog titled "Enjoy an easy quick dinner tonight." It was also published in an undated (Aug 2010) Squidoo blog titled "Some Amazing Budget Recipes." And it was published in an Oct 11, 2010 blog titled " Quick Easy Dinner Recipes: Garden Meatloaf And Low Fat Mashed Potatoes."

It was also published in an undated (late Apr 2011) blog titled "lNice Easy Dinner Recipes photos." And it was published in a May 20, 2011 Toddler blog www.toddlerinfo.tk/david-decadent-dinner-12-436 , with the same caption and detailed notes that I had written on this Flickr page.

When Christmas rolled around last year, we told our son, David, that there was no need for him to spend any money on presents for us – we already have all of the toys and gadgets that we need, and we know that he’s on a tight budget (otherwise, I might have asked for an Aston Martin, or a diamond-studded Apple iPad, or perhaps a private jet).

David responded with several creative ideas, one of which was an offer to cook a "decadent meal" for us. We accepted happily, and he arrived in our apartment on Tuesday evening and promptly set about whipping together a wonderful presentation of Bucatini all’Amatriciana — which, I have been asked to emphasize, substituted traditional spaghetii in place of the bucatini pasta called for in the official recipe. My wife had shopped for most of the ingredients, and done a little chopping and basic preparation; and I contributed to the meal by stopping at the local liquor store to find a good bottle of Italian Barolo wine.

Since I have no culinary skills whatsoever, common sense dictated that I stay out of the kitchen, safely away from the people doing the "serious" work of preparing the meal. But I couldn’t help sticking my camera into the middle of things from time to time, and I ended up with this set of photos…

By the way, if you want to recreate this yourself, check out Recipe: Bucatini all’Amatriciana in the January 16, 2008 issue of the New York Times.
