One of my most favorite parts of this part of the year is.... Lots of company! I like to have fun ingredients on hand to whip up a little platter of snacks when we have company, or go on a road trip, or go sledding, or, you know, even when I’m all by myself.
Recently, a fun and amazing little shop opened not too far from our house. It is called Maven’s Market. www.mavensmarket.com They have cheese, meats, gelato, and chocolates galore. They even have this cheese that when they cut it, it looks just like a white carnation! I would eat at Maven’s Market every day, except that I have a budget and my husband needs to eat, too. So, I pick up a few staples and a little treat every couple of weeks and buys simpler more usual stuff at the grocery store.
I love watching Maven’s Market on Facebook and try to make pretty snack boards, too. I will never compare to their amazingness, but I like the simplicity of a couple that I made recently. What do you think?
