Dear Caroline,

We’ve switched up the weekly schedule and now I can see you three nights a week

It’s delicately seasoned with black pepper and garlic, then dry-cured for almost 2 months. It has a sweet spicy flavor.

Sopressata – an Italian dry salami

instead of only two. The trade-off is that the other two nights combined are about what one was before. That’s okay. The quality doesn’t change. I’ll take quantity.

My first week of work. The job with endless possibilities, both for me and for you. The things I can give you. Oh, the places we’ll go. Talking about traveling eventually that has become “Yes. Let’s plan a trip to Fiji next year. ”

The Mediterranean cruise after that.

Imported from Italy, this prosciutto is aged over 12 months for a fragrant and delicately sweet taste. Salt is the only added spice. The most popular and classic use of this fabulous ham is to serve with melon or fresh figs.

Italy.

Greece.

France.

So many options. All the time we’ll need.

A rough week at work for you. Endless texts and minutes explaining. Trying to comfort you and calm you down. The way your whole body tenses when you’re angry or frustrated.

I’m glad it’s never been directed at me.

Mozzarella cheese was originally made from water-buffalo milk in Italy and is called "mozzarella di bufala". Most fresh mozzarella now comes from cow's milk, both in Italy and here in North America. In Italian, fresh mozzarella cheese made from cow's milk is called "Fiore di Latte."

Laughing, promising you a picnic where you can count the stars. Stopping by the store on my way to you.

Prosciutto, sopressata, fresh mozzarella in water, sweet onion crackers, club crackers, pimento stuffed olives, grapes, strawberries, apples, maple bacon onion jam, and a bottle of wine. I love a good moscato.

 

Meeting you, just coming in the door, rushing you off to take your shower so that I can sneak into the kitchen and put it all together.

Presentation is half the battle.

Straw-yellow with golden reflections and a delicate mousse. Fruity and very inviting, with intense scents of peaches and exotic fruit. Fresh and pleasantely sweet with a taste that reveals its varietal characteristic.

Giggling, watching your eyes light up, touching and tasting everything. Grinning at your eagerness. Sitting back with the wine and watching you.

I’ve never been so happy.

I promise, my love, to always bring you prosciutto and mozzarella when you’ve had a bad day.

Love,

Stacy
