EASY HOLIDAY CHEESEBOARD

Truth be told… I had the time of my life building this cheeseboard. Whenever I get a moment to myself (forgotten what that feels like now), my favourite pastime is creating an epic cheeseboard with a glass/bottle of wine; sitting on the floor while binge-watching This Is Us (don’t judge — I’m Jack-obsessed), and getting lost in meat, cheese and all things pickled. This has also been known in my life as LUNCH.

YES.

Usually I grab what I have, and since I love boards like this, I’m always fully stocked with jars of sun dried tomatoes, pickles, a fridge full of cheese and cold meats, and crackers in the pantry.

The best thing about a cheeseboard is that you can arrange it with ingredients or elements YOUR family loves, and however you want.

For this one I went with herbed breadsticks, bagel crisps, water crackers, dried apricots, fresh figs, pear slices, prosciutto slices, prosciutto WRAPPED figs (+HELLO), seedless grapes, olives, sun dried tomato, marinated feta, pomegranates, nuts, brie, American cheddar, parmesan, cornichons (or mini pickles), etc!

YES. There WAS wine involved during and after shooting these photos. I nice, chilled bottle of moscato.
