Prosciutto Wrapped Cantaloupe
Last weekend we had a great Easter dinner out in Winkerville. As we were all chowing down and grunting about how delicious the food was, out of nowhere, Patty says, “You don’t get food like this in a nursing home!” WHAT?! There was a short pause as we took this in, then we guffawed for a good, long time. It’s already one of our new catch-phrases.
This week, Mick’s in town, and as it’s a short stay, we started with brunch at my house. I set the time for 10:00, figuring the family, never noted for their timeliness, would arrive around 10:15, or (more likely) 10:30. The first guests pulled in around 10:40, with Patty and Fred arriving at 11:00. Oh, well. So the quiche wasn’t exactly fresh by then, it was still decent. This little appetizer number, though, was the perfect starter for brunch so the rest of us could nosh before the lagging guests arrived. It’s from Mary’s friend, Culinary Cory’s site, which has a plethora of great recipes I’m going to have to try.
Dessert consisted of Chicago Bacon that Mary and John gave us for Christmas. Yes, bacon. We Winkers prefer our food in pork form. A lot of pork. Thus the prosciutto, ham (in the quiche) and bacon for brunch.
