Every season is a new time for new routines, schedules, and even new beginnings! Also a great time to get dinner dates on the calendar, and be intentional with our hosting.

It’s intentional, because for me, not one dinner party ever “goes to waste.” Whether thinking ahead and planning an event, or last minute hosting, it’s always about the people.

This board as served almost 4 years ago at my home in central Oregon to a group of friends. It was delicious and devoured quickly! :)
