Bring a plate and platter ideas for Christmas. The calendar starts to get busy at this time of year with end of year events and catch-ups – here are some delicious and easy to make ideas.
There are lots of end of year events starting fill up the calendar, from class break-up parties at school, Christmas office parties, and family and friend catch-ups. I think we are all feeling keen to get together with friends and family and celebrate that 2020 is ending, especially now that restrictions have been reduced or lifted across most of Australia. Unfortunately while I was writing this, the news broke that South Australia is entering a 6-day lock-down. Let’s hope that everything gets under control there quickly and that it is only for a six day period.This is a timely reminder to be mindful of good social distancing and hand hygiene habits, and hopefully we can all sensibly enjoy being able to be together again. I have put together a delicious list of platter and bring a plate ideas for you to make and share for the holiday season.
These are my favourite things to put together, especially when I am entertaining at home, and they are perfect to take to a BBQ get together. Pick your hero items like the cheese, and build the rest of the platter around them so it looks nice and full. Yummo!
