Mini-Vacay

After a slight hiatus, we should probably get back to this, huh?

Sunday Funday – charcuterie boards are my favorite! They’re so easy and so delicious. Just pick a few different cheeses and maybe some meats and you’re good to go. We add a few little odds and ends to make it our own too. We like honey, jam, olives, balsamic, and almonds as some examples.

Today we used a few cheeses from Trader Joe’s. I always find they have a pretty good selection of different cheeses, perfect to add variety to a cheese board. They also have these great cured meat choices. This time we chose the Spanish option, but the Italian assortment is wonderful, too!

To finish off our little outdoor snack, the drinks. Mango lassis were what we ventured to make and they turned out very good. We subbed in some mango puree instead of fresh mangoes this time, but we will definitely be making this refreshing beverage again, so we can try out ripe mango chunks next time. We modified the recipe in the link below.

So all in all, a pretty fun, low-key Sunday afternoon.
