Our usual spread eaten in the family room as the sun sets in the background.

Tonight’s offerings: grilled olive oil garlic crostini and rosemary crackers, avocado and tomato, fresh peaches, radish, Prosciutto di Parma, dry salame, a log of chevre, Roquefort, Pecorino Romano chards, Swiss and Monterey Jack slices, Calabrian cracked green olives and cured Kalamata olives, and a special drink – Gran Sarao Brut Rosé Cava.

DSCF0234-1What made it even better was a surprise guest! Rach stopped over after work to drop some things off with our parents, then decided to join us for supper.

DSCF0236-1I leave on Sunday and won’t get a chance to see my big sis again before then. Very, very happy to spend a few hours of eating, laughing and drinking deep pink bubbly together with the whole family!
