Today we’re enjoying fall so much, and I couldn’t be happier. We had friends over for the first course of a progressive dinner last night (four couples), and of course we served a BIG BOARD. We also heard that all the new black (ebonized) boards are shipping out this week! Very exciting. They are truly beautiful.

The Perfect Fall Cheese Board

For this fall charcuterie board, we love the combo of salami and Honey Pepper Bacon (yum), paired with pumpkin hummus! Don’t forget the apple butter!

Take a cracker, add a thin slice of cheese, a quick spread of apple butter, and a small piece of bacon.

Or, your favorite cracker with a spread of pumpkin hummus, a piece of salami folded in quarters, and a thin slice of cucumber!

To me, fall means Pumpkin Spice Lattes, mulled apple cider, cozy sweaters, beautiful walks on the river, and lots of pumpkin recipes and cheese boards.

Fall also means football, tailgating, back-to-school, and a lot of family gatherings. We love to sit by the fire inside and out this time of year.

It means enjoying our favorite comfort foods and sharing great memories with loved ones, as the leaves change color and the air becomes crisp.

You can say, I love fall!

Talk. Eat. Love.

I do give thanks every day for the food that we can eat, my family, the love that we have, and the blessings that we’ve been given. There’s always a day when it all falls apart. Life is sifting and changing, and each day we’ve been handed this incredible gift of “family.” Eating together is where we store up those days, with our conversation, and courage, inspiring one another to grow in character and strength in all that we do. Eating together will be the next thing that we do when we’re all together, possibly binding the wounds and talking through life’s challenges.

The Perfect Fall Cheese Board

We talk, we eat, we love, and the world becomes a little better place!
