"We kids feared many things in those days - werewolves, dentists, North Koreans, Sunday School - but they all paled in comparison with Brussels sprouts." -Dave Barry

The refrigerator light goes on...

This recipe comes from a challenge that my brother gave me when he gifted me a basket of ingredients for Christmas that included some Busseto Robusto Spicy Dry Salami. While I will occasionally eat cured meats, I don't very often because of the amount of salt. An ounce usually contains about 350 milligrams of sodium, and that adds up since an ounce is not a lot of meat. The Busseto is even higher at 500 milligrams per ounce. That's a lot and tasting this it is indeed spicy along with all that salt. Salami: The Christmas Basket Challenge, Part 2 »
