I decided on one plum, a handful of red seedless grapes, and blueberries (I only used about half of them).
I rinsed off the blueberries and grapes together with the spray option on my sink faucet instead of the stream. I always feel like stream is too much water at one time for fruit.
(Even in the wax, the Gouda looked delicious). I only cut off 1/3 of the cheese - come on, it was barely even lunch time!
You can't deny this (even as a first meal of the day). With the little chunk of cheese I used, I cut it into smaller bite-size pieces. I never worry about making the pieces even because I like the uneven amounts of creamy contrast they give when eaten with the fruit.
Then I put the berries and grapes on a paper towel to really dry off. After I cut the plum into bite-size pieces.
I then plated everything. All of the natural sweetness was a good change from my morning coffee. After everything was plated (I'll clean up later) I sat down and watched Top Chef! :)
