As you probably know, I’m a 1st grade teacher. This week is Teacher Appreciation Week (if you can read this, thank a teacher!) and thanks to my fantastic parents and administrators, the gifts have been pouring in… gift cards, flowers, breakfast and lunch, coffee, Bath & Body Works products, picture frames… I’m getting spoiled!

I have seen this combination of melon and prosciutto alot lately and it sounds so fresh and summery! I just made one of these for lunch a couple days ago, so the proportions are for a single serving.

Our former neighbor, and friend, Ginny Fontana, had a pretty big crowd to her house recently for a Mardi Gras gumbo night.
