Holy Antipasto!

Back in June I had a work gathering at a friend’s house and promised to bring something. After working all day and then bringing the boys home to Rockport before heading back up to Hamilton, I didn’t leave enough time to finish preparing what I had originally planned to bring.  So…. I picked up the phone.  I called Mike’s Place in Gloucester and ordered a 1/2 tray Antipasto.  It was ready in 15 minutes, it was HUGE, it came with lots of homemade pita pockets, and it was only about $25.

As simple as it was, it was a big hit.  And…there was a ton left over to bring to work the next day to feed the troops.

Once this summer I ordered the same salad tray again and packed it a few days in a row for easy beach lunches…and for a couple quick light dinners. The only downside is that the salad is SO incredibly big that we could probably eat it two meals per day for five days in a row….but that would be a bit monotonous….even though it is yummy enough to do so.

After heading back to work full-time yesterday to plan for a new school year…and with the boys having a 1/2 day soccer camp each day all week long…the same 1/2 tray antipasto was calling my name.  It made for a nice dinner last night for all four of us, it will be my lunch today at work, it will be waiting for the boys after 4 hours of soccer this afternoon, and will probably be lunch and dinner again once or twice Wednesday and/or Thursday.

Long story short…. order one!   Perfect during a super busy week….especially when it is too hot to cook.

  • That’s what I always liked about my teachers and you always bring lessons to learn from and how you share this wisdom with everyone and solutions to the long weeks while supporting local businesses now that’s the foundation that I grew up in and carries me even today within. We need reminders of this from time to time great job to Mikes Place also!.
