Life’s a Picnic
Tasty grub in summer surroundings.
By Deirdre McCafferty, recipe by Tony Keogh.
Why not plan for lots of picnics this summer. Maybe we can’t predict the weather but we can invent some nice back-up plans and the food is going to taste just as good! If the rain does come, simply move indoors and set up for a fun indoor picnic; nothing ventured, nothing gained. If the weather is good, well that will just make the treat even more special.
Link your picnic to an activity – halfway through a hike or a stroll in the woods with a stopping point to rest, eat and a gaze across a beautiful view. If you have kids or nieces and nephews, why not try out a teddy bears’ picnic in the park. If you’re stuck for free time, try a lunch time picnic with a good friend you’ve been meaning to catch up with and each bring a few items so neither has to be laden down with goodies and baskets heading to work.
There’s no doubt that great food tastes even better outside celebrating nature. The countryside is too unique here in Ireland to let the Summer pass without celebrating what we have right on our doorstep. You might even find some interesting edibles out on your walk to add to your salads, wraps or sandwiches.
