Jina's Antipasto and Pasta SaladThis recipe can be tweaked to your liking and can easily be served as a main course. It can get expensive but I promise it's cheaper than buying it pre-made from a deli (tastes better for sure) and you will be asked for the recipe! I've found that the more I add, the more people love it!

If this is possible, before the major move, bring enough kitchen tools to the new place to be able to fix a simple meal. Put them away in their new places. How LOVELY, to have a coffee pot, can opener, plates and glasses on the first chaotic morning in your new house.
