Happy Mother’s Day. We tried backyard picnic, backyard cocktails, backyard BBQ and ShabyShabu. So for this Mother’s Day weekends, we decided to try something special and different— charcuterie boards paired with some wines. That way, we could really slow down, chill out and enjoy every small bite.
Another important reason is that we love to put some beautiful colors and textures together to honor Mother Nature and all beautiful moms out there with spring blooms that are surrounding us.
If you read our blogs before, you know that we often cut some blooms and branches from our backyard for our tabletop. Roses are in full bloom now in our backyard. So we got some garden fresh again. And we found this cute figurine and this Classic Blue bear in our china cabinet and use them to decorate our table. They do add personal touch.
And here are some photos we took for our charcuterie boards. We really focus on colors, textures and keto.
So what is charcuterie ? Basically it is meat and cheese platter. Today’s charcuterie boards have branched out far beyond just an average meat and cheese platter. They are loaded up with all sorts of fantastic snacks, including some popular keto-friendly snacks.
A charcuterie board often consists of a variety of cured meats, and artisan cheeses. You will also commonly see a variety of nuts, seeds, berries, pickled vegetables, breads, crackers, spreads, dips, tapenade etc. We have Salami, Prosciutto, Pepperoni for our cured meat and Manchego, Gouda and goat mozzarella for our cheese options. We use blue berries,raspberries, radishes and olives to add more colors. And they all have very low-sugar contents and pretty keno-friendly.
