Well, we're beginning to get close enough to the weekend to almost see it! Makes me happy anyway. If the weather was a bit better I'd love to pack a picnic and take hubby for a Sunday drive (ok, he can do the driving
) and take our dog and cameras. Here in NW Washington state we're getting rain regularly and it's still so cold there is no way a tomato plant would grow even if you begged it with steer manure tea!...lol
But I'm going to assume the weather is going to be nice and am going to plan this picnic anyway. Worst case scenario is we eat it at home by the fire! Yes, I'm still building a fire in the woodstove on occasion, it's that cold! Anyway, if you were going on a picnic what would you pack? This could be with a spouse,S/O, kids, a friend or family member...or just take yourself and go out to people watch.
I think I'll make this a light lunch and we'll go for crackers and some nice cheese. We had some Wensleydale with cranberries a while back and for those who are Wallace and Gromit fans, it IS really good. And our favorite crackers for spreading at the lite Ritz or whole wheat Ritz. Must have some fresh fruit to go with a lunch like this! Some melon sounds wonderful and maybe a little watermelon. I can cube up some of each and put it in also. Hmmm, must have some sweets to top off the lunch. How about
homemade soft and chewy ginger
cookies. Like a ginger snap minus the 'snap'.
Let's add to that some water and maybe a diet soda or two and we're set...except for puppy. She has her own lunch bag and in there she has a folding water bowl, a tub or two of doggie dinners...you know, those ones made as a meal for little dogs, about
the size of a small can of cat food. A couple of those make a great appetizer for her!..lol But I'll take some extra lettuce and some apple for her..she LOVES raw veggies and fruits, even oranges and romaine lettuce!
OK, our lunch is packed for a weekend drive. What are you going to pack in your picnic basket?
