Top Shelf Living Missouri Slate Cheese BoardTop Shelf Living Missouri Slate Cheese Board

The ever popular cheese platter and charcuterie board goes into the Super Bowl snack hall of fame.

fall-cheese-board

Variety is the spice of life and the rule of the cheese charcuterie board.  Work with what is available, on sale, and in season.

Here’s the items that make the tray.

One sharp, one mild, one soft, and one blue cheese.

Next, I select a trio of in season fresh fruits such as grapes, dates, berries, and apples.  Dried apricots and dried cranberries round out the category.

If I have good olives on hand I’ll add them to the tray.  Pepperoncinis complement well, too.

Creole pecans and mixed nuts bring the kick and the crunch.

Fig preserves, honey, and bacon pepper jam are my jam.

An assortment of crackers and breads of your preference.

Prosciutto and smoked turkey (house favorites).

Big Boss 16 Quart 1300-Watt Oil-less Air Fryer & Tabletop Convection Oven

Air fryer madness is sweeping the kitchen nation, and if you’ve got one you know why.

I call cooking/frying food in an air fryer a healthy compromise without any compromise at all.

Food cooks with less fat, faster than traditional methods, is not limited to frying (grills, roasts, bakes), and the best feature- no oil!

This alternative to traditional frying takes countertop kitchen appliance must have to the next super easy to use with super delicious results level.
