• Creating The Perfect Cheese & Charcuterie Plate

    I’m super excited about today’s guest post from my friend Rachelle of Wiley Valentine. Rachelle is always sharing yummy and healthy food ideas and recipes on her blog, and today she is sharing her tips to creating the perfect cheese and charcuterie plate, and since that’s what I missed most during my pregnancy I’m drooling over here and sending my husband to the market to buy supplies asap. And they are perfect for entertaining or just eating at home with the fam.

    Hello there! Rachelle here from Wiley Valentine. I am beyond thrilled to be guest posting for the fabulous Chandra today. Now a little back story to this post, I have a true, deep, passionate love for cheese and charcuterie plates. If you have seen my instagram at all you can see that it is quite common for us to have these at home on a Monday night. I thought it was high time that I divulge my secrets to creating the perfect cheese and charcuterie plate. Not just the usual general “a soft cheese, a semi-soft cheese, a blue, cows milk and goats milk” but actual names of cheese! So here we go!

    First things first, we want to make sure your plate looks pretty. The food will make it gorgeous regardless, but having the right cutting board, plates etc..can make all the difference. Having an impromptu party and have no time to cook, this is your solution, and the beautiful serving pieces make it entertaining ready.

    •  Quincy and I went to the #redCARpetsafety event today, which raises awareness for baby safety. Saw friends @uppababy @munchkin @ergobaby @babyganics & made some new ones like @thestep2company @showmeyourmumu as well. Quincy was making eyes at all the ladies, but he flirted the biggest with Caila with the good hair (which should totally be her hashtag). And all the new moms and moms-to-be were asking about this sling @mywildbird! Which made me think of a good #momtip: Taking Quincy on the go is so much easier thanks to babywearing and that @loyal_hana jumpsuit -- the hidden zippers make it so easy to nurse Quincy while wearing him in the sling. No one even knows I'm breastfeeding! Makes it so much easier to go places, especially with other little ones. I did a whole post on ohlovelyday.com about breastfeeding while babywearing if you want more tips! #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys #babywearing #normalizebreastfeeding  If I got to take two naps a day I'd be this happy too.  And for all of you who have asked me about this playmat, I blogged all about it today -- link in profile. #OLDfavefinds #quincyrhys
       Watching these three interact with each other over breakfast makes me flash forward to seeing them doing the same thing as big boys and teenagers and it makes me smile and shed a little tear at the same time. And then I think about how much cereal and milk I'm gonna have to buy  #thefredrickboys #lifewithboys  It's been one of those days (weeks, months, years) where everything is going wrong. Been up since 4:45 since I couldn't get Quincy back to sleep after a feeding. Calvin fell asleep in the stroller on a walk at 10:30 (something he hasn't done since he was like 5 months old!) so his normal nap (my break to eat/shower/work/rest or only have one child to care for for a couple hours) is gone for the day. Quincy pooped all over himself so bad that we were both literally covered in . And he's already woken up from his afternoon nap after only 45 very short minutes. And I'm supposed to have a date with my husband tonight except I'm exhausted and covered in  and have no time to do anything about either one. Oh, and I fell down the stairs (sore but not hurt). Motherhood: somedays you win, somedays you lose. But on all the days you are, to some extent in this season of motherhood, covered in shit.  Here's hoping the weekend is less shitty, in all the ways. #beerme #battlefieldmotherhood
