Picnics!!! I just love them! Even though the weather in Fairhope has passed “warm,” and has officially soared into “hot,” it’s still so beautiful outside, we continue to move our meals outdoors in the beautiful summer sun. Especially if we’re near the water, we can always pick up a cool breeze.
Here’s a “Tourte Milanese” which is perfect to serve at a picnic. No muss, no fuss. Well, a little fuss, but it’s worth it. In all honesty, with the exception of a few weeks here and there, we can pretty much picnic year round.
Or for a little more casual take on picnic food, try Walking Tacos. I think they are absolutely barbaric, but teenagers seem to love them. Okay, I’d eat one in my own house. With the shades drawn. And the doors locked. Licking the deep, bottom corner. But on some level, eating out of a bag is
better than chocolate cake yucky. I guess you would wash it down by drinking something straight out of a can, or so I’ve heard.
How’s this for the perfect picnic outfit? Ooo! I’d give anything to find a dress like this! But if you think this is cute, take a look at this picnic-chick . . .
Isn’t this the most gorgeous picnic hamper ever? No crinkly bags or cans here.
Here’s a photo I’ve used many times before of a real picnic I had with my Sweetie Pie. I’ll let you in on a little behind-the-scenes secret. The wine was so horrible, that I spewed it all over the beach, a-la-I-Love-Lucy! How ladylike was that? (Thank goodness the paparazzi had already left). And that’s saying a lot because I’ve rarely met a wine I couldn’t choke down, but it looks good in the photo, right?
Now, do tell . . . what are your favorite picnic recipes or memories? (Do they involve eating out of a bag?)
