say cheeeeese

Alternative headlines: for the love of fromage (cheese), c'est la cheese. cheeeeese. platter of cheese, PLEESE (get it?) – I could go on and on.

I’m OBSESSING over cheese platters and spreads – and vineyards and lavender fields and everything Provence, France – so I bet you can guess what’s in my travel future.

What’s not to love? A cheese spread is one of my favorite starters at dinner, one of my favorite things to pack for a picnic, to put out for guests – and to be honest, something I would be happy with having paired with a glass of wine for dinner just about any night of the week.

Unfortunately, for my cheese-platter-dreaming-self, it's not something that I can indulge in every night. A girl can dream (of a calorie free life) though, right?

Since I must withhold from laying out fruit, nuts and fresh baguette with assorted cheeses as often as I’d like, I’ve been perusing pinterest for what I guess you could call, my fix of “cheese spread porn”.  From inspiration on what goodies to include in a spread to instructions on how to properly assemble. The possibilities are endless!

Here’s a few of my favorites below. Find more on: www.pinterest.com/lindseyleifken/power-bitch-picnics
