Antipasto

Our New Year's Eve celebration was an early and a quiet affair.

Antipasto means "before the meal,"  the first course of a big Italian dinner, meant to take the edge off for hungry diners.  In our case antipasto, was a large part of the entire meal, served with a bottle of white wine.

There is an Italian market just a mile from the house that may prove to be our downfall.  And how easy is this?  Arrange food on a plate, then let it come to room temperature and enjoy.

That looks like good eating. Our 'antipasto' consisted of smoked salmon, several cheeses, crackers, nuts and white wine. I din't count calories that day!

That looks good enough to eat, Olga! Yum. Also, I applaud markets with delicious offerings so I don't have to cook.
