Christmas Tree Fruit and Cheese Tray
The office Christmas carry in was looming large on the horizon and I was grappling with what to take. I was aiming for something quasi healthy since I have health issues that prohibit me from eating much sugary sweet stuff (although I love it). I saw something similar to this online and decided to make my version of a fruit and cheese tray using cut up cubes of colby, cheddar, and pepper jack cheese plus green and red seedless grapes. I decided to outline mine with cut strips of string cheese so the whole thing wouldn't be dismantled by the time I got it to the office. I also decided to make my "star" from clementine segments. The version I saw online decorated the tree with sprigs of rosemary, but I substituted sprigs of thyme. All I have to do is supply some toothpicks for serving and I'm done. Simple, easy, fun, and pretty....all the basic criteria met.
Olivia and I wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May the coming days be filled with hope, laughter, and joy.
