Everyone loves Italian aperitivos, right? Fresh mozzarella, bruschetta, olives, porchetta, wine. What more can you ask for? Getting to spend time with wonderful people and socializing is the best part! Well, this past Wednesday we decided to throw an American-style aperitivo for our teachers and staff. We all contributed in making tasty American treats and we all bought either a red or white wine to serve to our guests. We had sliders, grilled cheese, salad, croissants, guacamole dip and chips, biscuits with honey butter, French fries, pepper jelly and crackers, pies and of course… WINE! I very much enjoyed having all of our teachers here at once and getting to know them better. There were a few people that I had not met yet, so it was so nice to get to introduce myself and tell them a little bit about me. We all dressed up (which we don’t get to do very often) and worked so hard on pleasing our guests as best as we could. Just like always, Mary Lou was the star of the show. We absolutely loved having her here and we love getting her opinion on any topic she wants to discuss. Roberta brought her beautiful little girl and the only thing she would eat is the grilled cheese! It made all of us laugh because that’s one of the main things we would eat when we were little. Francesco couldn’t join us this time, but I’m sure he will make it next time after hearing about our food and wine selection! Altogether, it was a delightful experience and I cannot wait to get to do it again! Our American-style aperitivo was most definitely something to be proud of, but best of all was getting to serve our teachers and staff that we are oh so grateful for. They deserve it all!
