Red White and Blue Party Platter

Ha ha, I am laughing at myself. I am laughing at myself because here I am again with a Red White and Blue post, around a week out from the Fourth of July.  You may be thinking why is this funny? Well it's a little funny because I am not an American, I am a New Zealander, so I don't celebrate the Fourth of July. But I do love food, so any reason to make a new post is fine by me. Hence this red white and blue platter, a part platter, a lazy party platter. Really really easy for those of us without the time or inclination to make something too out there.

Red white and blue platter, a super easy patriotic party platter for the fourth of July

This is my second red white and blue post for 2017. My first Red White and Blue Fun Fruit Cones is perhaps a little more gorgeous, perhaps has a little more wow factor, but this platter was liked by my kids as well. They are suckers for babybel cheeses!
