Let me introduce you to my dinner last night. 

I was feeling a little creative and also didn't want to cook (not that I do much cooking anyway). So VIOLA! My favorite thing about making a wine and cheese board is that you can add anything you want! It's essentially an "adult snack plate." 

To assemble your own charcuterie board, you'll need a variety of cheeses, cured meats, and crackers. 
Here's what mine consisted of:

Meats: Pepperoni/Salami/Prosciutto/Dry Coppa
Cheeses: Swiss/Drunken Goat Cheese/Brie/Aged Cheddar/ Colby Jack Cubes
Crackers: Wheat Thins/Whole Wheat Roland Crackers
Miscellaneous: Grapes/Fig Spread
Wine: Ricossa Moscato D'Asti

Wine and Cheese Board, Wine, Cheese,
Half of the fun is in assembling the board and the other half is in getting to enjoy it! Next time, I'll switch up the variety of cheeses and maybe throw in a red wine!


  1. This looks like the perfect spread - I'm such a cheese lover that I think I'd be good with just that!! But the meats and grapes are so good too!! Great idea for an easy weeknight meal!

  2. What a great your pictures!

  3. A wine and cheese board is so grown up, and I've never made one! What a lovely idea:)

  4. This looks soo yummy! Wine + cheese is my weakness. Wheat thins and colby jack cheese are two of my faves! XO

  5. I love doing these, only we usually are just making snacks!

  6. i love love love this...especially with some artichokes or olives. yum. the perfect bedtime snack!

  7. Looks delicious! Perfect for a night with friends over.
