One thing I learned to do this season was to prepare only a few slices of everything for appetizers and saved the rest for the coming days to come. I know the person helping me at the grocery store was not pleased with me for ordering just a few gms of each item of the red meats. I tried to be a bit diplomatic everytime she had to carry the whole piece of each ham only to slice 50 gms for me. I just said to myself that I was only going to be 2 minutes more.

Anyhow, I managed to squeeze in olives stuffed with provolone cheese, a few slices of swiss cheese, a few slices of havarti, cubes of cheddar cheese, a few pieces of smoked cocktails, cherry tomatoes and a few gms of honey ham, forest ham and pastrami in my tiny plate. It does look big but believe me, that plate is tiny.
