Fireside Holiday Picnic

Fireplace Picnic with Beaujolais Haloumi Crostini_Natalie Paramore

Who doesn’t love cuddling up by the fireplace during the holidays? I know I sure do! I teamed up with Beaujolais Wines for this fun fireside picnic for the holidays! I swapped s’mores for a fun take on grilled cheese with halloumi, a delicious cheese that you can grill, and pesto on crostini!

Beaujolais wines are from France and that instantly gives them a fancy feel but unlike other wines, Beaujolais wines are often served chilled and are easy to pair with food! Not only are the wines super food-friendly, they are great for entertaining this season. The wine is fruit-forward and quite affordable. Perfect for snuggling up by the fire for a casual get together with friends!

I can hardly call these Grilled Halloumi on Crostini a recipe but they are a fun, savory twist on roasting marshmallows by the fire! Which of course everyone loves a dessert but these grilled halloumi bites are the perfect way to get the party started!

I can envision many evenings this season around the fireside with good food, good wine and good company! This is what I love most about the holiday season! Just getting together with loved ones and spending time together outside of all the hustle and bustle and fancy parties. Which are always a good time but there’s something about these chill nights in that are so memorable.

How do you love to spend your holiday evenings? I always seems to stay up a little later just so that I can be by the Christmas tree!
