With so many weekends of travel this past month, I am rejoicing that I get to stay home this weekend.  I’ll have a few friends over and some house guests, so my faves this week are a few of my favorite go-to items to keep on stock for just such an occasion.  Packaged cheese will keep in the refrigerator for a few weeks, so I buy several varieties in advance and have them on hand. When stored properly, nuts, olives, honey, and dried fruit can keep in the pantry or freezer for several weeks.  Keep them on hand so that you can look awesomely prepared next time guests stop by.

 

Have a DELICIOUSLY wonderful weekend!
