DIY Antipasto Plate

I love Thursdays, but all days that lead to Friday are generally good in my books so I’ve been pretty pumped today.  I was only planning on going to the gym for a half an hour today, but then 45 minutes and a whole lot of sweat later I convinced myself to get somethin’ special at the grocery store.  J was going to be in class until late and I was going to have some time all to myself – and what better way then to spend it munching on a delicious antipasto plate while watching X-Files? Winning combo if you ask me.

Not your cup of tea you say? Well this ain’t your blog now is it.

Take a look at what was involved:

  • ASPARAGUS // Snaped the ends off. Steamed until dark green, cooled for 10 minutes and drizzled with raw olive oil and a sprinkling of fleur de sel.
  • EGGS // Boiled for 10 minutes and then in ice water until cooled. Removed shells, and cut in half.
  • CHICKEN // Roasted – Preferably from Inigo.
  • PROSCIUTTO // It doesn’t get better than at the St. Lawrence Market.
  • OLIVES // I like a little variety – from the olive bar at Metro ;)
  • CHEESE // Triple Cream – La Sauvagine
  • BREAD // Crusty and Chewy - Ace Bakery


Seriously people this was the food of gods…  Treat yourself would ya?

      Well, I was trying to find the right word for it and Charcuterie is only meat, and a cheese plate is well, all cheese. Antipasto fit the bill and if you look them up online they contain everything! Thanks for the comment mom :)

    Oh my gosh, that looks amazing! Kind of a nerdy question but as a fellow designer I have to ask, what font did you use for this??

    Wandered over from Miss Moss. I love this so so much. Takes all the pressure off of planning a lovely light meal for a chilled hang out. Nice work.
