I had a parenting class to get to last night, and about an hour from the time Brock got home from work to when I had to leave to make dinner and eat with everyone. Perfect night for bread, cheese and fruit-- an old fave. This one was featured in one of my first posts, cheater•meals, but it had been a while since we'd had it.
I'd forgotten how easy, yummy and kid-pleasing it is. Take 10 minutes to dig through the fridge and pantry for whatever looks good then slice a few things, arrange them on a platter, and you're done.
Last night, I found some smoked gouda, grape tomatoes, pistachios, pears, strawberries, sharp white cheddar, blackberries, hummus, some crackers, and white and whole grain french breads.
So easy, and everyone's happy.
And I had plenty of time to have a nice relaxed dinner (between dishing out additional servings of blackberries) before heading out the door...
