If you are an organic health nut, you might want to skip this installment of “Buon Appetito” (Dr. Isles, if you are reading this, that includes you). This blog entry is all about Italian deli cold cuts, and if you don't like cold cuts or think they're bad for you, well then – save it! (Everything in moderation I always say. Besides, what good is life if you can't have a slice of salami once in a while?) Now, besides being delicious, cold cuts have a very special place in my heart because I've eaten them at nearly every important event in my life – whether it was a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary, a holiday … you get the point. In fact, after I gave birth to Jane, I was lying in the hospital bed and the only thing I could think about was a “Joe DiMaggio” sandwich (cotechini, hard salami, hot capicola, and provolone) from the Mona Lisa Deli. So that's what my ex-husband went out and got me and
I ate – while he held Jane!
