We are excited to see so many of you interested in We Got This, Sis!
We hope you are sharing it with all the girls, young adults and women in your life. We encourage you to gather in small groups to enhance reflection of the exhortations. Below are three discussion guides with thoughtful questions to spark conversation. The guides are divided by book sections: Adore, Thrive and Lift. Feel free to use them to initiate in depth talking points.
When our tribe gathers, we typically provide a delicious charcuterie board and ask everyone to bring their favorite beverages. These meat and cheese platters are tasty and allow you to customize by group preference. If you don’t have much experience making charcuterie platters, see suggestions the discussion guides.
Suggestions for a Delicious Charcuterie Board
Our friends love a good meat and cheese platter. Below are ideas on how to create one. Also, we’ve included our favorite choices for your reference.
Grab a cutting board or a platter for display:
1. Add at least 2 meats (more depending on size). We typically gravitate to cured meats like hard salami, pepperoni, prosciutto and uncured Genoa salami.
2. Add at least 2 cheeses – choose a variety like soft, sharp or herb infused cheeses. We love sharp cheddar, various goudas and brie. Be sure to sample the cheese before buying. Some cheeses may not fit your palate.
3. Add at least one nut variety – almonds, pistachio, pecans, peanuts or walnuts. We love pecans and almonds.
4. Add at least one fruit – grapes, blueberries, raspberries or strawberries. My tribe loves all of these.
5. Add something salty – olives, small pickles or capers. If your group is adventurous, don’t be afraid to try unique bites like pickled okra or peppers.
6. Add something sweet – dark and milk chocolate shavings, chocolate covered raisins, toffee or mini soft caramel chews. You can also add a honey comb, jams and jellies to the board. Guests can drizzle these over cheeses. Our crew leans towards chocolate covered toffee. You can buy one candy bar, smash it into pieces and place them on the edge of your board.
7. Place crackers on the board if you have room. If not, use a separate basket or platter. We usually provide at least two types of crackers depending on the group size.
