Say cheese…board!

Who doesn’t love a good cheese board? Wine and cheese makes just about any house guest happy. And it’s a great appetizer to entertain before the main meal. Now that I have attempted my first, I’m here to report they really are not that complicated. All you need is some olives, fruit, crackers and/or bread, and really good cheese.

I had a cheese board from Christmas, which as you can see in the pics, has a tiny drawer that stores a few cute cheese knives. It’s just so adorable, I wanted to use it!  I invited a couple over for a small dinner party, and I was a little unsure where to start. How much should I buy? What all should I put on it? IMG_2913.JPG

I went with grapes, olives, gouda, brie and herb-crusted goat cheese that I smothered with a little honey! I wanted to have mix of crumbly, semi-soft and soft cheeses. I also had a few nuts in a silver bowl and of course carbs outlining the deliciousness inside. For a dinner party of three, this was just the right amount to kick us off for the evening.

Now that I have created a few (the pictured above was my very first) I’m starting to get a little bolder with my cheese choices.

I did a little more research on idea, and thought you might enjoy a few articles:

More cheese please!
