Perfect Picnicking

Standard

Howdy 🙂

It’s nearing the beginning of picnic season, which is always an exciting time to grab some local food and drink, prepare tasty snacks, and soak up all the beauty nature has to offer.

I’m a big fan of picnicking, and wanted to share with you some of my favorite sandwiches and snacks to bring along, as well as some other items I deem useful. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect picnic basket, so if anyone has any recommendations, please share!

Sandwich Combos:

  • fig jam/arugula/prosciutto/asiago
  • mustard/brie/ham
  • mustard/cheddar/apple
  • dijon/swiss/ham/cornichon
  • goat cheese/grilled veggies
  • gouda/chicken salad
  • cream cheese/cucumber

Snacks:

  • olives
  • fruit
  • dates stuffed with almonds
  • crackers
  • cheese
  • meats
  • honey/jam/peanut butter/chocolate spread

Other:

  • beverage: wine, of course! I store mine in my corkcicle canteen
  • blanket: very important. I adore my tarpestry
  • basket: as I mentioned… still on the hunt!
  • utensils: I want to invest in some nice reusable picnic utensils, plates, cutting board and knife. Again, recommendations are highly encouraged.
  • books, music, and a perfect location are also good to have on hand 🙂

I highly recommend you give the sandwiches a try. Tres delicious. Happy picnicking!!

About azuremarie

Bonjour, I'm Azure; a healthy dose of eccentricity best taken with a grain of salt. Most people describe me as sassy, and I like that. I love words, and think that anyone who can twist them in their mouth and make something beautiful come out is sexy and someone with whom I want to spend my time. I read a lot (bordering on too much), and am baller at boggle. I happen to be addicted to concerts/live music, and will listen to anything that can carry a beat, and even those that don't. I believe that being normal is boring, and love bright colors. I have a soft spot for animals, particularly dogs and horses, but I am beginning to be a cat person as well. Sometimes, I will admit that I like some animals better than some people - they're great listeners and don't judge. J'adore voyager. Someday I want to be able to look at a map of the world and say "I have been there, there, and there... and there", and have a memory attached to them all. I've recently begun to work at an organic juice bar, and diet/holistic health is starting to become a main passion of mine. I want to be able to experience our world, as well as help save it. Oh, and unicorns exist.
