Cheese and Wine

4 Apr

For some birthday celebrations I had wine, cheese and friends.  Good combo no?

I got pretty flowers.  A table isn’t complete without pretty flowers.  I think anenomes are my new favourites.I used washi tape to label the cheese board.I made this amazing flaxseed flat bread.  So easy and so delicious.I made beetroot cake.  I actually used Stevia (Truvia) as a replacement for the sugar – using 1/3 cup Truvia and 3/4 cup brown sugar and used a mix of wholemeal flour and spelt flour.  The icing I just mixed 300 g cream cheese, 50 g butter and icing sugar until sweet enough with two tablespoons beetroot.  This was really yummy and I will definitely try the recipe again.  What I did learn: (1) when making icing cream cheese should be warmed to same temperature as butter otherwise it lumps, (2) read instructions properly so you grate the beetroot on fine instead of ‘normal’.  I have awesome friends who bring homemade bread (soda bread with hazelnuts) and spelt crackers.
