One of my happiest moments in this past year was on the first night of my little birthday vacation when Sean suggested we order a cheese plate at dinner and then was just as happy as I was devouring it.
I have a Pinterest board of cheese boards.
So last week, when we were shopping for Thanksgiving dinner supplies, I spent too long at the Murray's Cheese Shop counter at our local grocery store. The very, very best part of this is you can ask them to cut smaller pieces of each cheese so you can try each one for just two or three dollars. You know, that way you can try six.
After the turkey was in the oven early Thanksgiving morning, I started cutting and assembling a cheese plate...with a couple kinds of crackers, deli meat, almonds and an amazing fig & orange spread from the cheese counter.
The cheese plate sat waiting on the kitchen table until Sean, Mac and I needed a snack to tide us over until everyone arrived for dinner.
Now I think we need to share a cheese plate snack every Thanksgiving...or maybe just every single week or something.
