Hey gang! How’s everyone doing? How is it almost July? I don’t even dare to predict what this month will look like, but it doesn’t look good. Heading into the Fourth of July weekend from all indicators here in San Diego with a surge in Covid cases, I have a feeling the beaches will be closed and most people will be spending the holiday at home.
Home or not, I am all about a party, even if there are only 4 people on the guest list. This year the line up of food includes burgers, hot dogs, watermelon, and of course, S’mores! If you plan on entertaining the fam bam at home this year, or are going to visit friends outdoors, from a socially appropriate distance, this is the perfect starter! This is such a fun grazing board I plan on making. Mama loves her a grazing/ Charcuterie board.
To learn all things charcuterie; check out this fantastic post!
Tips for a Tasty and Pretty Board:
-Use a cookie scoop for easy placement of soft cheese
-Combine a mix of sweet and salty
-Squeeze lemon on apple slices to keep from browning
Red/ White/ Blue Foods
Watermelon, cherry tomatoes, strawberries, salami, bell peppers, red candy, apple slices
Brie Cheese, Manchego cheese, pita crackers, mozzarella balls, yogurt covered pretzels, macadamia nuts, white corn chips
Blueberries, Concord grapes, blue corn chips, blue cheese, Blue M&Ms,
I like a solid white board that has a slight lip to the edge, especially if kiddos are running around. I find I can load it up and not worry so much about any stragglers falling overboard! Below are some I found on Amazon for ya!
Show me your boards if you decide to make them, and if you can think of any other red, white, or blue foods shoot me a comment below to add to the list!
Enjoy friends, and please stay home, stay safe, Be Bold, and wear a fucking mask!!!
