Nova on an English Muffin with Cream Cheese, Shredded Lettuce, Onion, and Tomato November 30, 2011

Jamie says: I visited the newest arrival to my big Italian family the other day- baby Cecilia (or Baby C as we like to call her). She is so adorable- all 7 lbs, 9 oz of her- and she’s my Godchild! I held her in my arms… so precious! Her big eyes looked around  as if to take everything in. Her skin was so soft and her hair smelled baby fresh. She was less than a week old and seemed so fragile. What a treat it was to hold a baby, especially when the baby is your Godchild. I fell in love with her instantly!

It was delicious! I love the smoky flavor of nova, the smooth cream cheese on the crunchy English muffin, the bite of the onion, the thinly shredded lettuce, and the salted, juicy tomato!

So flavorful!
