Things are as hectic as they can be during dinnertime lately. One child is eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at 4:30 after track practice but before karate. The other child is eating a quick bowl of reheated mac and cheese at 5:30 which is before soccer practice and cub scouts. The parents are too busy cabbing kids around to eat so they eat dinner at 9:30.
If I am going to wait that long, I want something good! So we had the perfect summer meal while watching Grey's Anatomy last night. I am lucky that my local grocery store has a great antipasto bar. I bought some sharp provolone cheese and semolina bread to supplement it with.
If your grocery store doesn't have an antipasto bar, there are always things you can buy to make a good looking plate. Here are some things I like to load my plates up with:
imported Italian meats such as salami, prosciutto and rosemary ham
all kinds of olives
stuffed grape leaves
hard boiled eggs
provolone and prosciutto stuffed peppers
What do you like in your antipasto?
