My First Cheese Plate



I shared on the blog last week about the french cheese board (see here if you missed it). So for our family New Year's celebration I decided to make my first cheese plate for my family and I.

I went to our local grocery store and went to the Murray's Cheese section and I picked up a small sample package.

One of the rep's there had a great sampler out that day and I tried the brie. Oh goodness was it good! I also tried the gouda and Irish cheese. So good....

I talked with her about crackers and spreads. She directed me to the fig spread and these tasty thin wafer crackers. Just delicious....





I picked up some sweet green grapes, flowers and headed up front to pay for my items.





I couldn't wait to get home to taste everything. The sampler that I purchased included all the cheeses, bread and meat that you see and it was only $5.99!! The brie (white cheese) and fig spread I purchased separately. I spent under $20 for everything.

Of course the wines were purchased separately. My favorite wine in all the world is the Risata Moscato d'Asti. I could drink it every day but I don't. We got the Welch's Sparkling Grape for the kids and they loved it!

Overall it was a great cheese plate and I will be doing it again very soon! To read the blog post that inspired me click here. It is quite delightful....
