What is antipasto meat?

Did you know that antipasto means “before the meal” in Italian? So this could be any type of appetizer or a small meal–before the main meal.

We like to serve a platter of cured meats, cheeses, and vegetables. Sometimes we olives.

Why we love to serve the epic big charcuterie board

Every season is a new time for new routines, schedules, and even new beginnings! Also a great time to get dinner dates on the calendar, and be intentional with our hosting.

It’s intentional, because for me, not one dinner party ever “goes to waste.” Whether thinking ahead and planning an event, or last minute hosting, it’s always about the people.

We love pulling out The Big Board (links below) for a big party. The board really does bring people together, as you an see.

This board was served almost 5 years ago at my home in central Oregon to a group of friends. It was delicious and devoured quickly! :)Tortellini Sausage Skewers Appetizer

Having recently spent 3 days with some of my best blogging friends here at Sunriver Resort, the first night they came to my house for dinner! A quick jaunt up to Cardinal’s Landing for a peek at the view and sunset before appetizers.
