It was a great start to the visit!

My best friend came into town and I wanted to cook dinner at home but still have something on the table so she wouldn't starve before dinner. Also, I wanted to serve her the yummy Aperol cocktails I learned about in Italy called a "Spritz" and you shouldn't drink on an empty stomach! The traditional recipe has Aperol (a citrus liquor that has a hint of bitterness), prosecco and club soda. So what best to serve with an Italian aperitif? An antipasti plate! We had soppresata (an Italian salami) and prosciutto, along with tomatoes with basil, mozzarella, almonds and pita crackers. So good!
