Set up: How to Make an Epic July 4th Charcuterie Board

How to make a cheese board

Start with a giant board (I purchased my board in Bend, Oregon at Pier 1), and lay down parchment paper (if board is not “food safe,” or you can lightly sand it down and season with beeswax and mineral oil).

  1. Prepare a large wood board or tray (either with parchment paper, or season with beeswax or mineral oil).
  2. Place small boards on the board to accomodate cheese, salsas, dips, nuts, or small foods.
  3. Fill in the empty spaces with various foods (crackers, fruits, meats, cheese).
  4. Always add some sort of sweet “nosh.”
  5. Serve right away!

Place the brie cheese in the center, and set small bowls around it (with various foods, like dips and salsas).

Gathering for the 4th is one of my favorite holidays, so today I’m sharing a delicious way YOU can celebrate with your friends, family, or neighbors!

America the Beautiful

Here are the words to my favorite patriotic song … America the Beautiful.

O beautiful for spacious skies,
for amber waves of grain;
for purple mountain majesties
above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
and crown thy good with brotherhood
from sea to shining sea.

O beautiful for heroes proved
in liberating strife,
who more than self their country loved,
and mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine,
till all success be nobleness,
and every gain divine.

O beautiful for patriot dream
that sees beyond the years
thine alabaster cities gleam,
undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God mend thine every flaw,
confirm thy soul in self-control,
thy liberty in law.
