Talk of bacon reminded me that I have not had prosciutto for a while.

Melon is in season. Need to get some prosciutto to go with it.



Hey, doesn't the photo below make your mouth water or what?


PS. This being the "Health" subforum, it occurs to me that the above dish is very low calorie, hence healthy compared to bacon. Why, if you could afford to get fat eating expensive prosciutto, well, that would impress me!

Oh geez had so much of that in Italy. Do you know how hard it is to get good old American bacon in the Uk? Fortunately I had connections to visit a military base to procure such necessities.

Yeah, but did you get fat? Don't tell me you can get it a lot cheaper in Italy than here in the US. I have been there too, though it has been a few years.

Anyway, you are right that sometimes while traveling, I would have a craving for cheap old greasy American food. McDonald's burgers tasted the best for me while in Europe. And I swear, after eating expensive Spanish ham for a few days, I craved regular American ham on a sandwich. But regular bacon, sorry, I have never felt the urge.

Hey, don't distract me from my immediate goal of "melon and prosciutto"! I am going out to get it tomorrow at Trader Joe's.
