Do You Love Your State Enough To Eat Off It

So today is a bit of a fail. I’m supposed to be on a flight right now, but canceled due to some stomach issues. I thought it may have been food poisoning but everyone I ate dinner with is fine. We’ll see how the rest of the day pans out.

Phil is fine, but silly…

All Vegas’ hard work helping me pack was a waste. Boo Sad smile

But today isn’t a loss for you because I have a fun giveaway!

Since I had friends over for the first time in my life I wanted to be all fancy and stuff so they’d want to come back. I set out a spread for Happy Hour last night on my new California cutting board.

Epicurean makes cutting boards in the shape of all 50 states. They sent me CA because they know how much I have California Love. It’s kind of small for a cutting board, but perfect for appetizers or a cheese plate like this. They are also made in the US and eco-friendly since they’re made with excess skate part materials.

I am born and raised SoCal and LOVE it. See, I even drew a pic of me on the area where I am from… I should have put an olive there for Olivas.

    California buddy! I love it enough to eat off of it for sure. I also would love to appear fancy, but I don’t know if this will be all the help I need….

  2. Chris says

    These are so cool! Jersey girl born and raised. I’d love to eat some goat cheese off of the jersey shore

  3. says

    Ooo I have bigtime VT love, and I would totally use a VT cutting board to make cheese plates…for myself…cause I love cheese.

    The Commonwealth of Virginia! My boyfriend would LOVE it (as would I) and we’re moving in together in two weeks so this would perfect for a housewarming gift to ourselves :)

  6. Cynthia says

    Love this cutting board. I live in PA and this would make a perfect cheese and snack platter! My fav!

  7. britt says

    Oregon, I currently live in CA but oregon is my home and I definitely love it enough to use it as a cutting board! :-)

  8. Sarah says

    Washington! (state, not DC… for the record I think the DC people should have to clarify, not those of us who live in the actual state… end rant)

  9. Dana says

    I’m a bit of a the past year i have lived in DC, Louisiana, and now New York. And that’s just this year! It’s not to mention growing up in Florida, living on a few other continents..I think I’d have to give it away as a gift, because I can’t choose what state!

  10. Lindsey says

    Ohio! It’s awesome to see where everyone is from in the comments! I bet you have a reader in every state!

  11. says

    The heart of it all – OH-IO!

    Sorry…this Ohioan couldn’t resist! An Ohio cutting board would be the perfect addition as my fiancé and I move into our new place!

    I hope you feel better!!

  12. Steph says

    Hope you feel better! Stomach problems on a flight would have been no bueno…My state of choice would be Hawaii :)

  13. Elizabeth says

    How cool is that! I’m curious as to what Massachusetts would look like…

    Thanks for doing what you do!

  14. Aimie C says

    I am a Canadian girl living in California for the past 4 years who know calls Sacramento home sweet home…Love this cutting board!!

  15. em says

    Floridian by blood but currently in Alabama. I think I’d pick Alabama because the FL board doesn’t have very much surface area :)

  16. Rachel says

    I am literally obsessed with Montana. It’s definitely the best. state. ever. (and yes I would eat off of it!)

  17. says

    This is so cute!! I’m from virginia! I would have loved to have given this to one of my friends who just got married and loves her home state of Kentucky to death.

  18. says

    Although California is a great “C” state, let’s not forget about the amazing state of Colorado! Possibly the easiest state to draw too.

    Feel better!!

  19. Ashley G says

    I was born in PA, spent my 20’s and met my hubs in CA, but we finally “settled down” in AZ, so I have to go with ARIZONA!

  20. Candice says

    I’ve got the California love!! I’ve tried to move twice out of state in the last 3 years but came back both times after 6 months. I can’t quit you California!

  21. Jessica says

    I don’t know what to pick!! I’m from California and spent most of my life there but now live in Wisconsin. Seeing as Wisconsin is all into their cheese I’d probable have to go with that one.

  22. Carolyn says

    Colorado! But I would totally get Montana, Utah, or New York since the Colorado one just looks like a regular cutting board. Love the Epicurean boards!

  23. Eunice says

    I live in DC, but they dont see to have that?? So, I guess I default to my home state of Maryland, which is cooler anyway :)
