Quarantini Cheese Plates

While some places are slowly returning back to the work force most of us are still facing daily challenges with working from home, homeschooling, staying healthy, maintaining connections with family and friends and more.   Today is Day 67 of sheltering in place for Andy and me but whose counting!!! We’ve come to embrace our new-found isolation with life’s little joys like 5pm quarantini cocktails and cheese plates. 

Unlike baking and cooking, you don’t need to follow a recipe to make a cheese plate. You don’t even really need to know anything about cooking. All you need is some cheeses, fruit, vegetables, nuts, crackers or bread, charcuterie, chutneys or jams.

While trying my hand at creating cheese plates I  learned when it comes to cheeses, having a variety of cheeses is key. Choose a mix of soft and hard cheeses, flavors, and milk types (cow, goat, or sheep’s milk cheese). Serve cheese at room temperature so take it out of the fridge and let it rest for 10 – 15 minutes.

Hope my cheese plates inspire you to make one for quarantine hours too.  Cheers to life’s little joys.  Take care and be well. ?

    Great way to make the most of this time quarantining Nikki. I love me a cheese plate. I’m currently removing dairy from my diet so I’ll have to create a vegan style one. Thanks for the inspiration beautiful and glad that you and your family are well.

      Wishing you well with your vegan diet Pentene. I did try, but could not let go of cheese. It’s the glue that holds my life together, lol. Love your new “Journey your Style” site. Wishing you continued success beautiful. ❤️

    LOVE the video and music! It put me in the mood of making my own cheese plate right away. Plus Cheese plate is less calories comparing with cookies. Yes I have been non stop baking and gain all the weights. Time to make this healthy yet yummy plate. Thanks so much for sharing Nikki.

      Lol, I can totally relate to all the baking Ting. I’m embarrassed to say how many loaves of banana bread and cupcakes I’ve baked! My fave pair of jeans is not fitting. But oh well!!! Enjoy the cheese plate darling ??
