A Grazing Board is an easy option for dinner, lunch or appetizer. There are no rules and you can make it as simple or extravagant as you would like.
We are a family of nibblers.
Not ALL the time, just some of the time.
As a general rule, we are a ‘let's all sit down to the table and have a dinner with placemats and napkins' kind of family, so the ‘grazing' dinner is a real treat.
But sometimes, on special-ish occasions, we break out…the Grazing Board.
Like, when we are decorating the Christmas tree and the home; we always put out a grazing board.
Or when there is a good football game on, it's so easy to put the stuff out and let folks graze.
Or when we are all involved in a project, like a puzzle or packing everything your youngest fledgling wants to take to college…you need a grazing board for sustenance.
Or when it's 6 p.m. on Tuesday and I haven't even thought about dinner plans…clearly grazing board time.
In my book, these are all PERFECT occasions for a Grazing Board.
This image is of a grazing board we recently enjoyed on a day when we were all darting about before our eldest was leaving for school. It sufficed as our lunch on that busy day.
There are no real ‘rules' for a Grazing Board…but if it requires a fork to eat, it probably doesn't belong on a grazing board.
And the amount of preparation you want to put into your grazing board is completely up to you. If you feel like wrapping slices of prosciutto around wedges of melon…by all means, knock yourself out.
However, if you just feel like opening a jar of olives…then that's OK too.
The grazing board is a judgment free zone!
