Antipasti Etc.

Just a few more food-focused tidbits from this past weekend….enjoy!

*Thursday morning,  friend Nandrea was putting together this gorgeous antipasti as we were slothing around watching the Thanksgiving parade.

A holiday tradition in her family; Andrea does this up right:
Top tier:

  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Fresh mozzarella
  • Provolone
  • Salami
  • Pepperoni
  • Prosciutto

Bottom Tier:

  • Roasted Red peppers
  • Italian tuna in oil, drizzled with red wine vinegar
  • Artichoke hearts

Mmm, I happily dug into this on Thursday morning (and again on Sunday when I stopped by, but really who’s counting?)

*Saturday night, I got to relax with my oldest friends from High School – with the exception of one friend who couldn’t make it 😦

Naturally there was plenty of this…..

….and one of these

Greek Pizza from Spukies.

Mmmmm black olives and feta.

A few glasses of wine, a slice of pizza and hours of girl talk; this is our recipe for sanity.

*I made a simple holiday ice cream sandwich for a dessert Wednesday and Sunday nights; so easy and festive!

Holiday Ice Cream Sandwiches

Line a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment or wax paper. Leave ice cream out, until it’s at a spoonable consistency (about 20 minutes). While the ice-cream is thawing, carefully break graham crackers in half; so that you have two neat piles for tops and bottoms (immediately eat all broken ones).  Pour Skor bits into a wide, shallow bowl. You’re ready to assemble.

Spread about 2tbs worth of ice cream on one graham cracker, firmly press another cracker on top, so that the ice cream goes to the edge (you can see I was a bit “rustic” here; but you use a piping bag or some patience to make yours look nice).  Roll the four sides of each sandwich into the Skor bar bits and place on the cookie sheet. You should work pretty quickly to keep everything from melting together. Once tray is full, place in freezer until set-up; about an hour. Makes 12 sandwiches

    Does Spukies make Sporkies?

    1. It’d be a darn shame if they didn’t.
