Anyhoo, my girl child insisted that we hustle our butts back out the door ASAP to 'GO SEE GAME!!' So, it was antipasti night.
I couldn't find a platter to take to a ball field, so I used a Tupperware container lid as our plate. I assembled some of our staples it east-to-eat pieces, sliced up a pear and grabbed some crackers. Voilà! Dinner
I keep a lot of things on hand that can be easily assembled for a snicky snack kind of meal.
- Dried Salami is one of them. It's full of flavor, keeps for a good long time, and is easy to slice and go.
- Jambon (French, white ham). I prefer jambon to many other hams. It's sweet, not as salty, and not smoked (a quality that I'm not a fan of in other hams). Pinch the slices into small pieces and little fingers like it, wither like this or even in their lunch.
- Roasted red peppers in the jar. I love these peppers. They are a little acidic from the vinaigre in the canning juice, and they add just the right amount of moisture to salads or, you guessed it, antipasti plates.
