This Galentine’s Cheeseboard for Three is a delicious and delightful way to show the women in your life how much they mean to you. Exquisite cheeses paired with sweet fruits and decadent dark chocolates are all snacked on while sipping a bright bottle of bubbly champagne! Enjoy it this holiday season with some ladies you love!
Originally, this was going to be a sweet and romantic Valentine’s Cheeseboard for Two. But, when I shared what I was making with my two best friends from college they replied with “oohs” and “ahhs” and “I want some of that!”
It was then that I realized that no, this isn’t the perfect plate for a pair, but instead, is the ideal treat for three! Three best friends. Three gal pals. Three galentines.
What is a galentine, you ask? Put quite simply, a galentine is a girlfriend you love. A sister you chose. A pal and a confidant, if I can borrow a phrase from one of the greatest television shows of all time.
Learn how to make a cheeseboard that’s piled high with Wisconsin flavors!

Well if this isn’t shaping up to be the most Midwestern
weekend, then idk what is!
Between Seth hunting and me working and all of the shuffling
around that comes from having in-laws who have in-laws – we just couldn’t make
Thanksgiving at our house work.
So! We regrouped, reconfigured, and reorganized. And are now
going to be hosting a Christmas party/open house/Festivus instead!
I really love hosting gatherings at our home. I’d rather have a cavity filled than leave our house for a social engagement, but the tables are totally turned when I’m hosting the party. I love having people over! Milling around, making drinks, munching on snacks! It’s the best! I like decorating the house and doting on guests. As evidenced by Cheeselandia last year and my podcast-themed birthday party this year. Call me crazy, but I even like the clean up afterward, too.
Sides may be the most important part of a meal for me. They can make or break the main course. Elevating and uplifting it or dragging it down to the bottomless depths.
Luckily, this cornbread stuffing does the former.
It will complement the savory bird at the center of the table, being sturdy enough to stand in the place of a traditional stuffing. Or, it will delightfully contrast a tart cranberry sauce, adding just a hint of sweetness from a generous amount of cornbread. It’s enough of a departure to feel adventurous, but not so outlandish that your guests are unwilling to try it.
In a word – it’s perfect.
I’ve got quite a few recipes that are perfect for your
Thanksgiving day and dinner needs! Let’s discuss them, shall we?
