Welcome to The Busy Girl’s Guide, a bi-weekly article where I share my favorite tips, tricks and lifestyle hacked aimed at showing you just how easy it is to add a little style to your every day, busy girl schedules. Early spring always seems to be filled with extra excitement and anticipation of longer and warmer days to come. Spring weekends are filled with afternoon picnics, garden parties and of course lots and lots of wine. Almost nothing goes better with wine (in my opinion) that an overflowing cheese board and now that I a few more reasons to head outside to relax while enjoying a glass of two or vino, I need to stock up on a few of my favorite cheeses.
When it comes to wine and cheese finding the right pairing makes big difference in how both the wine and cheese taste. Ideally, you want the wine and the cheese to compliment each other and in doing so the flavors will really pop. Pick out a few of your favorite cheeses and build a delicious cheese plate to share with friends or enjoy a few slices of one of your favorite cheeses while unwinding with a nice glass of vino.
I’ve broken down a few of my favorite pairings for you, all that you have to do is sit back and relax!
Here is what you need to know:
My Favorite Entertaining Ideas:
– Host a cheese and wine tasting party- set out your favorite cheeses with place the coordinating bottles of wine next to each cheese!
– Host a blind wine tasting party- have your guests bring their favorite bottle, cover the labels and vote on the best!
– Afternoon garden party – pick up a few cheeses and a few bottles of wine to enjoy al fresco with some friends!
