In my previous post, I mentioned an afternoon filled with cheese – which was pretty pretty glorious. Obviously fun to hang out with my friend, but um, cheese. Need I say more?
Creating a cheeseboard doesn’t really take much energy, you throw a bunch of things (edible things) on a board and suddenly it looks nice. People think it takes time and energy, but shhh, it really doesn’t.
For this particular cheese board, I kind of just went for what was around my kitchen and in my fridge. I had brie, goat cheese and cheddar – all delightful cheeses and a bit of diversity with texture and taste.
I had grapes and truffle honey, but before I continue let me just take a second and tell you about this truffle honey. OMG, amazing. I got this in NYC a couple weeks back, carefully wrapped it up in my suitcase and have been waiting for an opportunity to open it. A cheese afternoon seems like the perfect opportunity. Though I’m surprised I didn’t just put a spoon in it earlier and eat it plain. So yes, find yourself some truffle honey. Right now, put your phone down and find it.
Going back to my cheeseboard adventure – I quickly cut up my loaf of bread and laid out some crackers and uh, put everything on the board. So ya. There you go.
I also then ate it all. My friend helped a little.
PS. I also just put some cheese and tomatoes on bread, put it in the oven for 10 minutes. Then I had some leftover smoked salmon, and put it on some toasted bread with olive oil and salt. I had leftovers, figured I should use them somehow! Doesn’t look great, but pretty tasty and simple.
