Who else has been getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit this year?! I’ve been really loving all thing V Day (did you catch my Valentine’s Day Home Decor post?!) and so I wanted to share something food & drink related for the holiday.
When I started thinking about what exactly I wanted to share the first thing that came to mind was charcuterie since, let’s be honest, Alex & I are charcuterie obsessed. Not only do I make charcuterie for every party we host, we also eat this for dinner at least once a month.
Okay enough of my blabbing on and on; let’s get to the “meat” of this post (… get it?! Alex’s terrible puns are clearly rubbing off on me 😂) I’ll go through the details of how to make a Valentine’s Day themed charcuterie board & how to make my favorite Valentine’s Day cocktail – which I’m calling “Love Potion #9”.
For a Valentine’s Day themed charcuterie while sticking within the general charcuterie basics, you want to opt for red foods for your board. I’ll share a full list of what I used below. To make the board feel extra themed – use a heart cookie cutter ( I used two different size ones) to cut one of your harder cheeses into heart shapes.
– 3 meats (I used chorizo sausage, salami, & prosciutto)
– 2 cheeses (I used smoked gouda & goat brie)
– tamarind almonds
– crackers ( I used Mary’s GF for me, and Ace bread crisps for Alex)
I could not be more in love with this delicious drink! The pale pink color screams Valentine’s Day and it’s quick and easy to make. It tastes like strawberries & chocolate melted together and it is SO good.
In honor of Valentine’s Day I’ve teamed up with a group of other bloggers so we could all share different Valentine’s Day content with you and have you covered for this holiday – with everything from outfits, to beauty, to date night ideas. Check out their posts below:
