Hope everyone had a beautiful blessed Christmas! We had a wonderful Christmas and we truly enjoyed so much special time together just the four of us. It was magical and we made so many memories that we will cherish forever. I hope your Christmas moments with family were magical as well!
So here we are…those last few days of 2020…I mean, how did that happen so quickly?! We are all eager to welcome 2021 but I will say 2020 was a blessing in so many ways so I am a bit sad to see it go. It is also a time where we all start to evaluate changes or improvements that we want to make at the start of a brand new year. There are many things I want to focus on and manifest in 2021. I’m excited for all that is to come!
It’s also a time where many of us are tired of cooking yet we are meal planning for the New Year. Sigh. I enjoy cooking yet have felt the need to take a break as of late because I know I will be cooking more in the New Year…more healthy meals as a whole. So this is my break from cooking and it comes in the form of a Wreath Charcuterie Cheese Board…YUM!
If you are also taking a break from cooking or ramping up for more meal planning, putting together a charcuterie board is one of the easiest, quickest, and most delicious ways to feed family and friends. Maybe you are having a few loved ones over for New Years Eve…this would be a great way to keep it low key but keep everyone satisfied. Set out some plates, toothpicks or hors d’oeuvre forks, and napkins and you are all set.
Here’s what I included on this Wreath Charcuterie Cheese Board:
- cheese cubes (select a variety of mild and sharp cheeses)
- cashews and macadamia nuts
- banana peppers
- artichoke hearts
- fig jam
- dried apricots
- plain bagel chips
Get as creative as you’d like with your charcuterie board…anything goes truly! Normally I add some fresh fruit to my boards but I kept it on the savory side and allowed the fig jam and dried apricots provide a touch of sweet.
Hope you all have a wonderful start to the New Year! I encourage you to manifest all of the things that you want to happen in 2021 and work towards your goals. Cheers to you, cheers to yours, and cheers to a year ahead that will shine bright for each and every one of us!
As always, thanks so much for stopping by! See you back here real soon!
