Who can’t love antipasto? One of the prettiest love letters Italy has ever sent the world. Granted, an antipasto plate like this would not have graced the dining table of my trim Newfoundlander of a mother. But the idea of antipasto? Ahh yes, that would have been deeply acceptable to her. Because wherever we live in the world, an appreciation for real food as good food is written deep within us all, prompting us to acknowledge “deeply and profoundly, that these items are more enjoyable, more delightful and more sparkling in taste than any junk food we could ever consume.” –Living Slim: A Canadian Woman’s Way
Dreaming of the time we can travel again. This sweet dessert is a perfect reminder of a great cross-country trip taken on VIA Rail Canada a few years back. It’s a wonder I didn’t walk off that train 3 days later, 12 pounds heavier! But every lovely mouthful consumed at those well-set tables was so worth it!
