We are Thankful for... Charcuterie!

I knew I'd be cooking more later in the week so I opted for an easy dinner last night - a Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board!  This is such an easy dinner for me to make.  No pots and pans to clean, minimal dishes, a great way to finish up little bits of everything and it just requires some chopping that I don't mind one bit.

Hello, Thanksgiving Turkey Charcuterie Board.

I'm guessing we'll be having this again before Thanksgiving break is over.  It's a family favorite.

I did salty snacks in rows for the feathers, carrot and cucumber sticks, super thin cut apples for feathers, thin slices of cheese, sweet pepper body, pistachios for a head and I served a loaf of homemade bread on the side.  Everyone knew it was a turkey without me having to tell them so I'm calling it a great turkey success :)

And in honor of Thanksgiving, I interviewed everyone to find out 3 things they're thankful for this year.

Olive // Age 7

1. I'm thankful for my family.

3. I'm VERY thankful for our girl kittens.  I love them too much!

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with the people you love.  I know COVID likely changed some of your plans, but I hope you can find a way to celebrate and stay positive.  Hugs to you!  

I'm going to enjoy a Thanksgiving Break and will see you back here on Monday.
