• 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.

    •  I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale  Got one little corner of the boys' soon-to-be-shared bedroom done today. Once the bunkbeds arrive I may totally rearrange things but for now I'm loving this @thelandofnod table for reading, doing puzzles, and there is a hidden bin underneath where I have a Lego topper hidden so we can make it a Lego table too. And store those puzzles with all of the little pieces that drive me insane  Can't wait to finish and share more of this room (and move Cal in so I can move Quincy into the nursery and maybe get a little more sleep!) You can see the design process and inspiration that I did with the design services team from The Land of Nod on the blog as well (link in profile). #projectsharedboysbedroom #calvins3rdyear
       Mama said there'd be days like this... Just not 200 of them in a row  good thing the company's cute. Also, currently loving this playmat from @lollalandusa - it's big and soft and cleans easily. And now we can practice sitting without worrying about head bumps when he falls over  #quincyrhys #OLDfavefinds  And just like that, Calvin is more little boy than baby  #calvins3rdyear #boyhood
