Prosciutto de Parma

I gave it up for Lent, but they say that you can have what you gave up on Sundays, so I picked some up.  Prosciutto de Parma is available, and sliced to your preference at places like Boulevard Bread Company, The Fresh Market, and Terry's Finer Foods.  Ideally, they trim off the fat around the outside, ask how thin you like it, then they show you the first slice for approval.  You can also buy it pre-packaged at Whole Foods, Sam's Club, Kroger Marketplace, & Terry's Finer Foods.
Arugula pairs really well with prosciutto.  Gianna likes to combine them on a warm & toasty baguette.  I like prosciutto salads with arugula and a balsamic vinegar dressing.  I love the silky texture of the salty, dry cured Italian style ham! I have to stop now.  Sunday is 6 more days away, and I feel the same about this stuff as some women feel about sweets!
