We are FOODIES!  This means that we love to eat, sample, and cook foods of all kinds.  (Sidebar… they actually like frog legs?!?)  However, Chef Jess pointed out to me recently that I have been lacking.  “How so?”  I asked?  She replied that I don’t make hors d’oeuvres for them like I do when I am having a party for other people.  Hmmm.  Sigh…  She was right!  So, I decided to change this because I realized that, in her mind, “hors d’oeuvres” mean that the person visiting is really important.  So, on a random weekday….  we made a charcuterie board for an extra special after school snack simply because I wanted my babies to know that they are more important to me than ANYONE else. 😉

It is super easy, and won’t break the bank!  Pick out a couple of your favorite cheeses.  Cheddar is a kid favorite, but venture out a bit and add another.  They chose sharp cheddar, smoked gouda, and brie. Chef Jess handpicked the meats…Capocollo Salame, hard Salami, and Prosciutto.   To round it out, Chef Fresh added grapes, blueberries, dried cherries, almonds, and soft garlic cheese.

We labeled the cheeses, and piled on the meats, fruits, and scattered a variety of crackers onto a wood cutting board. Tah Dah!!!  Easy after-school hors d’oeuvres were served.  Just a few prep minutes is all it took to make them feel…well… special. 🙂  Hors D’oeuvres are not just for guests!!!!!!!!!




Faith, Family, Food…    In that order
