Picnic essentials

Spring is a great time of year to venture out for a picnic. The air is cool enough that you won’t fade from heat exhaustion. And it’s when gardens start to take shape again. It needn’t be a complicated exercise. The simpler the better. Here are a few essentials.

Picnic rug
It will make things a little more comfortable and itch free.
And provides a great surface for an after feed snooze.

Sandwich napkin
It doesn’t have to be fancy. Ham and salad on a baguette. Done.
Just be careful with things like tomato turning your bread to mush.
And be sure to have a napkin to wipe up messy hands.

Drink straw
Something with fizz to keep you refreshed.
OK so the straw isn’t an essential, but it looks good.

To keep the glare away and make your snooze more comfortable.

Something sweet
A piece of watermelon is great for warm days like these.
A big juicy apple or sweet pineapple will also do the trick.

When your belly is full lay back and listen to a favourite album.

Did you know that I have a mailing list? On top of the recipes I post already on the blog I’m going to start sending out private recipes to you guys that have subscribed. A little something special to show my appreciation. The first will be watermelon mint granita with a hint of vodka ;) If you aren’t a subscriber but would like to be then head over here to join us.
