Italian bread! Eaten cunsatu, Sicilian for fixed up...

To quote one of Rocco's comments, worthy of its own post: "Nonna thinks that there's God in bread so she will not throw any of it out, ever. And, therefore, she always eats stale bread. If she knew how much bread I give to the birds in the backyard she would have a fit. Actually there's nothing like fresh bread. However as you know to me bread = Italian bread! Eaten cunsatu, Sicilian for fixed up, that is warm with olive oil a little sea salt and some pecorino...that's heaven. So nonna is right after all."

italian nonna's seem to have this same belief across the board. my nonna would happily soak some rock hard, stale bread and devour it as if it was the freshest bread she's ever eaten every time.
