When it comes to serving up an easy appetizer, one of my favorite things to throw together is a cheese plate -add some fruit, nuts a baguette and you're good to go. Added bonus: it usually looks nice too.
These cute state-shaped cheese boards from the clever folks at Totally Bamboo make the presentation even more special.
Priced under $20, it's a fun way to show off some state pride -and with the holidays fast approaching would make a great gift packaged with specialty cheeses and nuts.
Below, a cheesy quiz to test your geography skills -are you smarter than a fifth grader?
(1. Louisiana, The Pelican State 2. Texas, The Lone Star State
3. Michigan, The Mitten State! (okay, that's my official name for the region...) 4. Wisconsin, The Forward State (and home of the Cheeseheads...)
