An Ancient Snack

Today we look at a wonderful, simple snack eaten in the ancient world and commonly enjoyed today - bread and salami! Both bread and salami are mentioned in Homer and then are mentioned by many other Greek and Latin authors. Not surprisingly, Rome's grocery stores today have incredibly good salami and the bakeries have great bread. Eating bread and salami together is a great snack on a hot day.

1) Peel rind off salami.
2) Cut a piece of salami. Tear off a piece of bread. Eat. 
This is a simple one! You should go get some bread and salami right now and have a wonderful snack! You deserve it! Perhaps, also have a glass of beer like Kyle is having in this photo. Enjoy!
