Generosity Sicilian style

Anna Maria's freshly baked bread
I got off  the plane and a friend of mine picked me up at the airport, After declining his invitation for lunch because I was very tired and sleepy, I went home and took a nap. Of course I had very little to eat in the house and being a Sunday afternoon in January all the stores were closed. Mr dear neighbor Anna Maria had just returned from the country where she had just made home made bread. When she offered me a loaf, I could not refuse. Just with some real olive oil and some Sicilian incanestrato, that is Sicilian pecorino cheese, I was virtually in ethnic heaven. The generosity of Sicilians is unique. Thank you Anna Maria, you made my day.
