Sorry for the hiatus; but sometimes one needs to step away for a while. During the Holiday season work picked up and had me pretty exhausted. The simple platter above was what I often ate after work; because its simple and pretty much pre-prepared, just add wine and voila! I realize I did not cook this platter but rather found these awesome accoutrements; such a delicious buttery brie, salty salami, peppery pepperoni (Smile), sharp white cheddar and assorted olives and blackberries at none other than my local Aldi’s… Yes folks if you haven’t caught on yet please do! I love this store for its affordability and growing commitment to sustainable and organic food items. Hopefully you live in a state that has one if not just hit up your local Trader Joes; if none of these chains are accessible pop on over to your local grocery store and pick up some fun snacks for a beautiful charcuterie and cheese plate made simple.
