Totable Dinner

This evening we are going to have dinner with our new "landlords" at the home we will rent from them. They are missionaries to Uganda and will be gone for 4 years! I decided to take something easy and so I will be taking our favorite Muffuletta (3 variatons!), chips, classic potato salad, mini-no-bake cheesecakes, and lemonade.

I'll also be taking paper everything so there are no dishes for anyone!

Muffuletta ala Anne
Printable Recipe

1 large round loaf of bread (traditionally Italian)
1/2 lb hard salami-sliced
1/2 lb sliced ham
1/2 lb smoked turkey
1/2 lb sliced cheese
1/2 c chopped black olives
1/2 c chopped spanish olives with pimiento
2 plum tomatoes sliced
1/2 c Italian dressing

Cut loaf in half horizontally. Remove inside of bread leaving a 1" ring at edge. Layer meat and cheese alternately, I usually make 2 layers. Top with sliced tomato, chopped olives, and drizzle with dressing. Replace top of bread and wrap tightly in plastic. Refrigerate for several hours and remove from plastic. Cut into 6 wedges.
