Will you be cozying up by the fire this holiday season? Even into the winter months?

If so – here is your safety reminder to get a Chimney Sweep to Inspect the Fireplace!

It is always best to hire someone who knows wood-burning fireplaces. A professional chimney sweep will ensure your wood-burning fireplace burns more efficiently and will help prevent chimney fires and carbon monoxide poisoning during the winter. So, yeah, it’s pretty important.

And here is one last tip: If you don’t already have a chimney cap, this is also the time to add one to stop wild outdoor critters from crawling down it — and (yikes!) into your house.

In The Kitchen

Charcuterie Wreath

This is less a recipe and more of a basic how-to. Gather all of your favorite antipasto foods, skewer them on large toothpicks then arrange into a wreath shape.

It is easy but makes a big impact on that holiday appetizer table. Plus it is a great way to serve antipasto. Folks can just grab a few skewers instead of touching and pawing at everything on the platter

To start – Prep any ingredients that require chopping, slicing or cubing.
Skewer ingredients onto large toothpicks. Arrange in a wreath shape on a large round platter or serving board. Tuck rosemary sprigs evenly around wreath. Sprinkle with micogreens. Transfer to refrigerator until ready to serve.

Ingredients in this platter:

Salami, Pepperoni, Prosciutto, Mozzarella Pearls, Fontina, Havarti, Manchego, Green Olives. Black Olives, Marinated Artichoke Hearts, Mini Pickles, Roasted Red Peppers, Peperoncini, Cherry Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Grapes, Rosemary, Thyme. Basil, Micro Greens, Large Toothpicks
