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.

BEST Chicken Taco Bowl Board

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.

The BEST Chicken Taco Bowl Board

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).

Best Charcuterie Boards to Buy

I updated my list for the best charcuterie boards to buy, since Pier One has gone out of biz.

For this post I used the epic 28-inch Pier One round board (but it is no longer available). I will be updating “best charcuterie boards to buy” post as I find more boards (with a lip) that would work for hosting!

For now, I absolutely love the LeCreuset Tray (link is in the “best charcuterie boards too buy”) because it has a nice lip, it’s food safe, and EASY for entertaining.

Happy Hosting!
