Chicken Taco Bowl Board

Let go of the idea of perfect entertaining and provide a space where people feel the warmth and love and safety of your home.

Chicken Taco Bowl Board

It may be a dinner board, like this Chicken Taco Bowl Board, where guests serve themselves and bring their plates back to a cozy space in the house.

**Use a board with a lip [grab all the board info and how to season the board, HERE.] This is important so the food does not fall off.

Or set out candles and napkins and sit down to eat and enjoy fellowship.

Dinner boards are casual, and everyone loves taco salad!

I always say, don’t wait, just invite people in.

Soul Food QUOTE

I’ve shared this before: “Soul food is just what the name implies. It is soulfully cooked food or richly flavored food, good for your ever-loving soul.” —Sheila Ferguson

Don’t worry about your home

Don’t worry about the condition of your home. Honestly, when I’m invited to a dinner, my energy does not go to my surroundings and every detail. My energy goes to conversation, the people. The food is a great addition, because when you think about it … we’re sitting around a table, taking in the same ingredients and surroundings, verbally sharing so much about life.

This is soul.

Eating together is beautiful and “soulful.”

Setting out food on our tables and inviting people in, it becomes love in action.

I think it makes people feel more loved and convivial when it’s not a big plan, and a large dinner board is that.

Dinner boards are casual and fun! You may have already tried my Epic Chili Dinner Board or Easy Taco Dinner Recipe Board. Also, this Mustard Salmon Sheetpan dinner is a spin on salmon (to add to a board).

28-inch Charcuterie Board

Friends, here are the boards that I LOVE. A “lip” is the secret to the best charcuterie or dinner board, because the food does not fall off. [This post has affiliate links. Every purchase from these links supports RE at no extra cost to you. Thank you!]

Rememember it says it is “not food safe,” so you need to prepare the board by either laying down parchment paper under the food, or you can “season” it like we did.

Here are a few other (affiliate) options:

Courtland Wooden Lazy Susan – 18-inch round. Buy >> HERE 

LAZY SUSAN is a board that spins. It does NOT have a lip, but it’s cool for the center of the table.

Here’s an 18-inch wine barrel wood board or a 24-inch hammered large round tray or a 26-inch stainless steel serving platter that you may also like! Check out the weight on these boards.

How to season a Charcuterie Board

If a wood board says it “not food safe,” you can lightly sand it down with sand paper, and rub down with beeswax and mineral oil.

We used this butcher block and cutting board oil conditioner after we lightly sanded the board down.

Or, lay down parchment paper! Easy peasy!
