Charcuterie Heaven

Charcuterie boards are one of my favorite things and I was lucky enough to have three of them in one week!

This skellie board was one my daughters and I did for my birthday.  You might remember the skeleton from most post a few weeks ago when one of Grandsons buckled him up in our car.  The skeleton board was all candy and sweets, but the cheese board next to it was cheese and crakers.  The speckled cheese was our favorite.  It was red and green bell pepper cheese with a bit of spice.  

This next one was a board we purchased at Provisions Cheese and Wine Shop in Wetumpka, Alabama.
Funny story about the board.  We ordered the $10 board to go with our $5 Mimosas and they brought this.  We immediately thought they must lose money on the boards!  The owner came by a bit later and told us they had made a mistake and gave us the Humphrey Bogart Board in error ($28).  We totally lucked out!  The bottom cheese was a cave aged cheddar and we loved it.  The crackers were pumpkin with a basalmic glaze.  Amazing!

The mimosa in the top of the picture is my ticket to T-day over at Elizabeth's Blog where the T-day gang all share their posts containing a drink of any kind.  Happy T-day friends!!!

One last board - this was from last night.  Since the people at Provisions were so nice, we bought some cheeses to make another tray. 

The brown block on the bottom was a Caramel flavored cheese from Norway.  They told us to put it on waffles and green apples so we did.  I think we were all afraid to try it, but it was wonderful.  The kids were eating it like coffee.  I bought Brownie Belguim waffles instead of making my own.  In the top left corner there is a ghost pepper and pear cheese (wonderful), and in the middle is a BLT cheese ball (it was from my sister-in-law and was a hit).  There is also fried turkey and spicy pickles.  We also had French Fry Mountain.

After all this wonderful and fattening food, I am going to be on a diet for sure.

Hope you had a week full of fun foods and fabulous drinks as well.




  1. You must have a lot of celebrations in your life these days! Or did you save these up from a number of occasions?

    best… mae at

  2. Those boards all look so delicious. I LOVE the brown Norwegian cheese, it is delicious, and very addictive. I would love to eat my way through your boards! Happy T Day, have a great week, hugs, Valerie

  3. Wow those boards look amazing. Well done on getting the $28 board for $10, that was a nice bonus. The skeleton one would have been fun for Halloween. Happy T Day Elle/EOTC xx

  4. Good morning Wow your food boards all look so good. The skeleton board was a great idea for Halloween. they all look really delicious-and you got one of the more expensive ones by accident too-fun Happy T

  5. All this yummy food. You really got lucky with the $28 board you didn't pay $28 for. It looks delicious. And I agree, there is nothing better than a board so you can nibble. I like the one you and your daughter made with the skeleton too. What fun. I haven't had a mimosa since I think last Christmas. They are great, aren't they? I hope you have a wonderful week Nancy, and a very happy T day too. Hugs-Erika

  6. The boards are all so attractive! It all looks delicious, and I'd enjoy tasting everything, The mimosa would add a festive touch, too. Happy T Tuesday

  7. Oh, now I really want a cheeseboard to pick from! These are so well done and delicious looking, and it's been quite awhile since hubby and I enjoyed something like this. Great luck on the mistake board order:) Happy T day!

  8. Everything looks fantastic and so festive and I wish you a very happy but belated birthday! Now that I'm drooling, I think I'll go find myself a snack ;)

  9. Lovely and yummy looking spread! These Charcuterie boards are quite popular now. I think this is a great idea for holiday entertaining.
    Happy Tea Day,

  10. I was hungry when I got here, and now I'm even MORE hungry after seeing all those cheeses. You lucked out on that one cheese board and it was great that you purchased a few more cheeses, too. I'd say it was a win-win for you and the shop. I have to admit I've never had a cheese ball I liked, but your sister-in-law's sounds great. Maybe she would share the recipe with me.

    All your Charcuterie boards are wonderful. And of course, I like the mimosa you shared, too. Thanks for these photos of all your Charcuterie boards you had this week, as well as your mimosa for T this Tuesday. Pass the fries, please (grin)!

  11. I never heard of a charcuterie board before. They look good. Happy T Day!

  12. I'm hungry now! When I make a cheese board it never looks that good. That French Fry mountain must have been very satisfying! This is a very delicious post!

  13. Now I am hungry. This is amazing. Love all the food.

  14. Super boards Nancy, they all look fabulous but I especially like the skeleton one with all the sweets and candy.

  15. Oh! This is bad - I'm drooling over cheese at nearly midnight-I've yet to meet a cheese I didn't like - the caramel one might be a challenge as it just might have a little too much sugar...but if it tastes nice I would be tempted to overlook that! :-)
    Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo
