It is the holiday season and the first thing which strikes you when you think of appetizers are cheeses..A cheese board can make any party special..Creating you own cheese board is not a big deal. it is so easy than slaving hours over hot stove. In this post i will try to cover the main things..All the cheeses are picked from local Acme Stores. A cheesesale is about to happen in your local acme stores starting from Nov 20th to Nov 25th. Head over to the store and stock up your favourite cheeses with a whopping 25% off on your cheese purchases.

2)Choose the best board for your cheese, you can either use a wooden or ceramic or whatever your heart desires.
