Joke, do you have a bun in the oven? craving prosciutto? When I was pregnant, I wanted POUNDS of prosciutto and bacon. Pounds and pounds.
I like that you "decanted" NOS. It's an interesting choice of verb.
did the pancake thing yesterday but am not doing the ash thing - i am not that ready to commit to episcopalianism...it's a wide gulf between the episcopalian church and the southern baptists. must...go...slwoly....

Prosciutto is the #1 reason I cannot ever be a vegetarian. Bacon is cool, but a distant 2nd.
In fact, I am so prosciutto-mad, that ages ago I bought a (home-version) deli-type slicer for use upon a whole hunka Italianate porky goodness.
P.S. I have a friend who is married to a HARDCORE Tridentine Missa Cantata type o' Papist, and it's taking her a bit of doing to acclimate to this from her Baptist background. So I think I can feel your pain.

Just stopping by to say hi--as a girl who was Catholic for one year, I have volumes to say on the whole Lent thing but right now I am very very tired. Nap, anyone?

I was busy buying a house yesterday, so I'm doing the pancake thing tonight. I figure since I'm not a Catholic, or even a practising anything, it doesn't really matter. And my daughter did that whole "oooh, oooh, pancakes!" slavering-like-a-rabid-dog thing when I mentioned it, so, y'know, I'll keep her happy while attempting to mute my insatiable lust for maple syrup.
There's this Spanish version of prosciutto that I love called Serrano that is seriously good stuff. I just eat it plain. Sometimes on a nice cracker with a slice of manchego, but mostly, just plain.

I'm in for the nap.

Serrano is good stuff and if you can get the "Jabugo" (that's like the "di Parma" I s'pose) you're golden.
