flat-bread crackers + a valentines day cheeseboard from @CastelloCheese

Valentine’s Day is now just a few days away. Have you made your plans yet?

Ian and I used to do the present and fancy dinner thing, and then we had kids. I don’t think we’ve been out to dinner on Valentine’s Day since. Honestly, I don’t mind one bit.

There are always chocolate hearts and a few books for the kids, and we plan a nice dinner at home. Sometimes we eat with the kids, and sometimes it ends up being just the two of us. Either way it’s turned into a fun little tradition.

However you plan to celebrate your valentine’s Day, a cheese board and some fun heart shaped flatbread crackers make a fun addition whether you plan to feed  two or 20.

Because I’m planning a cheese board  for especially for Valentine’s Day, chocolate is a must. Cheese, fruit, chocolate, and bread, and I don’t think I’m even going to need a meal.

Along with the chocolate covered berries and almonds I chose three of my favorite cheeses – blue, aged Havarti, and a classic blue brie (heavenly) all from Castello.

Where there is cheese, so must there also be bread, and I made fun heart shaped flatbread crackers.

Not to forget  the wine, of course a cheese board needs just the right wine. I am firmly in the white category, but Ian is a reds only guy. With our cheese board we chose a Folie a Deux Chardonnay, Cab, and  Zinfandel.  Something for everyone.

Don’t forget to enter the Castello #CheeseChallenge to win a trip to the Folie à Deux tasting room in the beautiful, world-class Napa Valley region of California where wine and cheese go together naturally!
