When was the last time you went on a picnic? And no, it doesn’t have to be at a park or beach, but what about outside under your favorite tree, or on a blanket on the back deck or living room floor. Can’t remember? Well maybe it’s time to eat a meal on the ground, picnic style.
When I was young, my mom used to let us have picnic lunches on Saturdays after the Saturday morning cartoons were over. They were simple, and probably consisted of sandwiches and a drink on a blanket in the living room, but I remember them fondly.
It was nothing fancy or special, just different and low key, something that made for a great memory.
Now that the weather is nice an outdoor picnic is on my wish list. I recently moved close to a park so it might be fun to pack a lunch or dinner and take it to the park. Or perhaps I should just layout a sheet, find some shade and enjoy eating a meal outdoors on a blanket.
First I should check out our recipe section, as I know we have some tasty recipes that may make for a great picnic meal. I think picnics are a great way to remind all of us to slow down and enjoy a little change of venue now and again.
