Welcome Home Cheese Board

My sweetie returned from a week of fly fishing in Montana Saturday night.  I knew he was going to be one tired pup too!  They fished 7-9 hours every day in fast moving water (which I think is nuts but nobody asked me).  Then he had to wake up at 5 AM on Saturday to fly back.  He had a quick flight to Salt Lake City, a four hour flight to Atlanta, a three and half hour layover in Atlanta, an hour flight to Charlotte and then an hour drive home.  Whew - makes you tired just thinking about it, doesn't it?

I knew he would have eaten dinner in the Atlanta airport.  But I also knew he would still want a drink and some nibbles when he got home.  So I borrowed one of Ina Garten's (aka - the Barefoot Contessa - I only have EVERY SINGLE ONE of her cookbooks) favorite hostess tricks for guests who are arriving too late for a meal, which is to lay out a cheese board.  I added a tray with his favorite bourbon and wine and everything was set.  This is such an easy spread but looks elegant and special.  And I am happy to report, it was a big hit!  I hope you'll enjoy this spread when you welcome special people into your home......after hours our otherwise.


Welcome Home!
