The holidays are over, the winter blues have settled in, and our darn Christmas tree is still up 😂…sounds like it’s time to have some fun! Well yes, I could be taking the tree down, but why do that, when instead I can give my fabulous readers an amazing giveaway with 13 items to start 2020 out in style? Forget that tree…we will get there when we are good & ready. Let’s focus on making people (you) happy, by giving cool stuff away like this gorgeous authentic “Butcher Block Cheese Board”…
What is this Butcher Block Cheese Board Giveaway about?
13 of us DIY home decorating bloggers come together every month on the second Friday and bring you “thrifty ideas“. Well, this month we are each giving 1 home decor item away from our “stash” to 13 different winners. If you would like to see the full list of very generous giveaways, just follow this post until the very end. There is some really good stuff (note: each giveaway has separate rules).
Where did the Butcher Block Cheese Board come from?
The “Butcher Block Cheese Board” that I am giving away, was actually part of our kitchen island at one point. If you look at the photo above, you will see a pull out butcher block cutting board. That photo is from my recent Holiday Housewalk, and that butcher block cutting board is still located in the island. However, the butcher block piece we used to make the DIY “Butcher Block Cheese & Apple Board” is actually from the opposite side of the island.
The butcher block cutting board was located inside a drawer, and I decided I didn’t want it early on because I wanted to put my utensils in that drawer. I also wasn’t too keen on a pull out cutting board because it moved back and forth when I cut 😖. In all honesty, the original owners that put this island in, really didn’t give the location of these pull out cutting boards much thought.
Rick and I took matters into our own hands long ago and took it out. For a little, while I used it as a cutting board on top of the island, but it was way too large. We ended up storing the butcher block until we cut it into 4 pieces to give to family and use ourselves. My parents and sister still use their’s.
Eventually, I came up with the “Cheese & Apple Butcher Block Tray” (how fun is that 🧀) and it served us well, until my pantry started over flowing with too many trays and cutting boards. I need to find a good home for this bad boy and I hope you will take him in. Here’s how to win the “Butcher Block Cheese Board Giveaway”, and GOOD LUCK:

Cheese and cracker boards are usually the center of any party. I always admire what people put on theirs. I love to put different types of cheese with grapes and several different types of crackers so there is a variety for all.
I LOVE cheese so picking a favorite is hard but I guess I would just have to go with pepper jack and chicken in a biscuit crackers. Simple but I love them together!

My favorite cheese is sharp cheddar but I also like dill cheese.

My absolutely favorite cheese is sharp cheddar, with ritz crackers. It takes me back to a time when I was small. Grandfather would get out the sharp cheddar block and cut off slices to put on ritz crackers. I couldn’t wait to taste that scrumptious cheese. That for me was like candy now to children. For us it was a treat! Brings back wonderful memories.

I love doing an Italian meat and cheese board!
Error. It runs 1 week.
I found this great cracker at Sam’s club. It is a multi grain with flax and chia seeds. Normally, the carbs in something like bread or crackers, make me hungry, but this cracker actually fills me up! Very thin and crunchy. It comes in a 2 pack foil–wish I could remember the name, but I believe they only have one kind like it. I like to pair it with Havarti or Brie cheese, while my husband likes it with a good cheddar. 🙂
I guess I am pretty basic…..but my favorite is a slice of colby jack on a good old fashioned Ritz!
Hello to all… what a fun giveaway idea…

I enjoy most cheeses and crackers. Paired with a fruit and glass of wine. When my husband and I started dating we were doing a cheese of the week tasting and kept a cheese journal. Even my son (age 7 at the time) wrote comments in the cheese journal. That was 5 years ago. I still refer back to that cheese journal from time to time to see what kinds of cheeses we liked the best. And, I love seeing my son’s handwriting and pictures he drew in the journal (think pics of stinky cheese, LOL).
Love this board!! I usually have yellow and white cheddar, imported English Wensleydale with apricots or blueberries, French Brie with Carr’s table crackers, plain and cracked black pepper, some triscuits and wheat thins and some sort of extra thin cracker too. Accompanied by sliced grape tomatoes, Greek olives, black and green olives and wine on the side. This board would simply make my Cheese board smile and give it a bit of sophistication!! 🙂
Ritz and swiss😋
I love the butcher block cheese board. Such a pretty idea. I am kind of plain with my cheese and crackers. I grew up eating slices of cheddar on zesta crackers with a little mayo. So yummy!
