Recently, we had a birthday party for My Beloved and two friends whose birthdays come somewhat close together. It was one of those delightful parties where the guests come prepared to have a great time and to make it fun - they succeeded.

To this party, our friend the Evil Empress brought some truly spectacular nibbles. The Fra'Mani Dry Salami and Toscano Salame were to die for when paired with nuts, cheeses and Greek olives.

Sliced paper thin, the Toscono wrapped itself around a piece of Old World Portuguese from Spring Hill, a wonderful marriage between the two flavors. The dry salami was perfect all by itself but I did see some guests slathering it like a cracker with Laura Chenel garlic goat cheese and popping it whole into a smiling mouth.

We should perhaps have stopped with the nibbles - they were almost the best part of the lunch - but we managed to nibble our way through a whole lot of other food as well!

Oooooh... very yummy lucking dish. However, I must have missed a plate of food, as I don't recall seeing these nuts that day. Instead, we had those all-too-yummy marcona almonds. All-in-all the whole event was delicious from start-to-finish.

Evlmprs, you caught me - I made up this plate to photograph from the leftovers from the party - and there were no marconas left over! :-)
