Author Notes

OK, so no real recipe here. My local grocer just ran an ad stating that if you bought the 3 ounce package of prosciutto they would give you a ripe, juicy cantaloupe for free. I am SO into this-gimme now! The cashier-who is about my age-has no idea what is going on and asks me why the prosciutto is paired with cantaloupe. My friend Rick G and his beautiful bride Sharon introduced me to this luxury at their wedding reception back in the day. I've never forgotten. —Vicki Amsinger
