apéro

I have really been loving Valerie's Apéro Friday posts. Besides the beautiful and delicious food, I just love that friday vibe of relaxing with a glass of wine and finger food - it feels a bit fancy, but it's so easy and perfect for the warmer evenings.

Obviously, being French, E was all in for Apéro Friday. And so it happened.

For the food, we had grilled asparagus wrapped with prosciutto, toasted baguette with goat's cheese & fig, herb & garlic olives, mini plum tomatoes and a huge chunk of manchego cheese.

This was a minimum-work-required spread, and it would be great to serve to guests because it's so easy but looks quite nice!

To go with our nibbles, we had a lovely bottle of wine from Roberson Wine. This Muscadet was exactly the kind of white wine I like - dry and crisp with a clean aftertaste. E also gave it two thumbs up.

Along with plenty of bread (and seconds of everything, pretty much), it made for a hearty dinner and we thoroughly enjoyed it, while chatting about our days and about our plans for the weekend. 

You should definitely take a leaf out of Valerie's book and try this - we're waiting for our garden furniture to arrive, and once it does (and the weather behaves), I can see us doing this al fresco every chance we get.
