The best ways to build a charcuterie board.

To me, the best way to build a charcuterie board is having someone tell me EXACTLY what to buy and how to arrange it on a board. I don’t have any desire to stand in front of the cheese counter and decide what to put on a board; that makes my head spin!! Thankfully, my friend Marie Marino shared her best charcuterie board with me. She gave me all the goods, so that I can easily build a board with no thinking and no stress. Best of all, I am sharing all of this with YOU!!! Here goes…..

Let’s Talk: Q & A with Congressman Gary Palmer 

It is election year, so that is all we see or hear on the media. Family Savvy followers submitted questions to Congressman Gary Palmer. He answered them in this podcast. He has served during two presidents and knows a great deal about what is happening “on the hill.” It was one of my favorite episodes, so I hope you’ll listen!! The SavvyCast podcast is on iTunes, Spotify, iHeart Radio and all major platforms.

I hope your summer ended well and your Fall is spectacular. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
