I've invited some friends to share all things picnic in celebration of upcoming International Picnic Day (06.18.12). Today's post is from a dear neighbor of mine, Jamie.
Hey there, I'm Jamie from Lyrical Journey, I was thrilled when Nikki asked me to share a post for Picnic Week. The Salty Pineapple is one of my favorite daily reads, and Nikki is one of my favorite neighbors. I still can't believe she is leaving our little corner of the world for North Dakota, but I wish her and her family all the best on their new adventure.
I decided I'd pull together a picnic that fit my life - one that required no prep, and especially that didn't require cooking skills! My picnic plan: a quick stop at the market for a bit of my favorite wheat berry salad, some coconut water(already chilled), and wee wedge of brie. From home I grabbed a peach and a handful of crackers out of the pantry.
I made my way to a park near my home, pulled out my picnic mix and watched the sun set. No fancy dishes, no hand pressed invitations, in fact, no planning at all went into my picnic, but that time I spent relaxing to some good music watching the sunset was perfection.
What's your favorite picnic shortcut?
