Last week, my Mister and I went on a picnic –our first together! ^_^ I absolutely love dining al fresco and it’s extra-special when shared with him. I also finally got to crack open my Winnie the Pooh’s PICNIC COOKBOOK and put it to good use!
We tried the ‘Expotition Picnic‘, and the menu includes fruit punch mixed with ginger ale, some roast beef sandwiches (which I ended up using salami for, because… I forgot to buy roast beef. :D), carrots with cucumber and sour cream dip, chocolate-chip peanut butter cookies, and sugared nuts. Yummy! 🙂
We went to a nearby park and had such a relaxing, peaceful time. It was the best place to be in the world –under a willow tree on a blanket laid over the grass, with my man’s arms around me and a fine view of the lake. ♥
I suppose we were too eager to eat, because I never managed to take any pictures of the food, but I think that’s almost better than if I’d been able to. Sometimes, you’ve just got to be so excited for the moment and the experience, and who cares if you end up with memories rather than snapshots? 🙂
We even had a visitor, whom we fed some crumbs to… and he just wouldn’t leave after that!
I hope you manage(d) to have a lovely picnic too, before the summer ends.
