I just realized that I haven’t yet had a picnic this summer, and it’s forecast to rain all next week. Thank goodness we’re only in July : )
I’m going to plan ahead though; I just can’t wait to spend an early afternoon lounging under a shady tree in Central Park. Here’s my list of summer picnic essentials: (…the words in italics are links)
1) Maxx Loup. He’s my boyfriend of 4+ years, the most supportive partner, and a crazy talented musician. I’ll make sure he brings his guitar on our picnic!
2) Watermelon Pineapple Agua Fresca. 3 ingredients become pure liquid bliss. Ahhhh….
4) Avocado Squash & Basil Risotto. A hearty yet light dish perfect for any meal of the day (including snacks). It’s delicious right out of the pot or cooled down and eaten as left-overs.
5) Dessert? Raw Chocolate Mousse Pie from Peacefood Cafe!
