There should never be an excuse for a cheese board but in this case, it was a rainy day. So a Rainy Day Cheese Board and a movie are just what the day called for!

Rainy Day Cheese Board

When rainy days hit, I actually get excited. It’s a wonderful excuse to do all those things you have been putting off. For me, on this day it was renting a movie I wanted to see. I can’t think of a time when I don’t have cheese, crackers, nuts and some fruit in the house so this cheese board came together with what I could find.

And in case you are wondering the movie was “Emma”. Not the GP version but the newest version of this classic. I don’t review movies but I would say the GP (Gwyneth Paltrow) version was better.

What’s Inside this Cheese Board

  • Triple Cream Brie
  • Aged Gouda
  • Smoked Gouda
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Green Apples
  • Cashews
  • Almonds
  • Walnuts
  • Honey
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Crackers


  • Cut the triple cream brie into bite-size pieces to make it easier to eat. It avoids having to include a spreader on your board.
  • One of my favorite things is to combine the brie, walnuts, and a drizzle of honey. It’s so yummy.
  • The honey also works with the brie and the green apple slices.
  • This board pairs perfectly with the Dove Hunt Dog Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Let’s talk about crackers. I love these everything crackers (the longer crackers). It works so well with a spreadable cheese like the brie. Or maybe some Boursin or goat cheese.
