I like simple. Simple is good. Especially on a week night when I’m ready to hang out with my wife, who is also my best friend! We enjoy our cocktail hour with a few hors d’oveures. We have a variety of nibbles, (and cocktails), that we set out for ourselves, but the best are the simple selections of cheese, olives, nuts and a bit of dry sausage.
It doesn’t have to be foie gras every night, or even hot hors d’oveures. Find something simple that you like and keep some on hand. Of course it goes without saying that they must go with cocktails!
