The Ubiquitous Melon and Prosciutto

Travelling through Italy with four young boys ages 4-8 can severely slow the pace of four adult gourmands. Lucky for us we were in the countryside at the height of perfect melon season. Thick slabs of the sweet slick orange flesh were devoured with hand shaved slices of country cured prosciutto. As it was on just about every menu as an appetizer or salad, it was ordered often. Made at home with our market picks, it was a favorite of both the children and adults.

that looks yummy!'s West Wheeler....remember me? We enjoyed UCLA losing to Miami back in like 1997 or so. I think your oldest was your only baby back then.(she's now my ex-wife)

Anyway, I am a recruiter for a staffing firm down in Orange County now and doing some searching, I thought of Bruce and eventually found this blog. I have a food blog, too.

Hope to hear from you and let me know how the fam-damily is.
