Have you ever swooned with extreme delight after eating or tasting something that's so out-of-this-world good? I just did.
After getting a haircut this afternoon, I went to AG Ferrari to get balsamic vinegar and some prosciutto di parma. Got my vinegar, but the parma ham was out of stock. I bought some prosciutto di san daniele instead.
Sweet Mother of God!!! It was so good I thought I was gonna pee in my pants! I had the sales clerk slice it tissue paper thin. The meat is sweet, not as salty as prosciutto di parma, and just melts in your mouth. It has such a delicate, wonderful flavor that unfolds in on your tongue very slowly, building until you're giddy with delight. In comparison, prosciutto di parma (which I LOVE) is a flavor explosion.
I am hooked! I just bought half a pound, because it ain't cheap... but I think it'll be gone before I go to bed tonight! Should I give some to Bill? Nah! Uhm.. okay, I guess I'll save a teensy-weensy bit for him!
