A Perfect Day For A Picnic

Yesterday was a perfect day for a picnic.  Beautiful sunshine and far less humidity than of late.  I had made some preparations in advance and selected some of the recipes from the Teddy Bears' Picnic.

I made pinwheel sandwiches filled with ham, cheese and cornichons  and a day prior to our trip, I baked a tray of delicious chocolate brownies.  These taste absolutely amazing!

We didn't go by bicycle, but the food that I had prepared was delicious, though we didn't go to the trouble of unpacking the full picnic bag, choosing to dip in and nibble during our trip.

I can't recommend this book highly enough.  If you are a fan of picnics (and who isn't?), this book is for you.  Filled with delicious recipes conveniently laid out in themes, you can plan a walk in the woods or whatever takes your fancy.


  1. I love picnics, in the garden or on the beach - as long as the wasps stay away! This looks a lovely book and your brownies look very tasty:)

  2. Ahh, there is nothing like a good picnic! Like fish and chips by the sea, having a picnic is one of those meals that is made so much better by being eaten outdoors :) The brownies look absolutely stunning.

    Best wishes,

  3. Rosie - the brownies are fabulous! Just not great for the waistline!!

    Tash - we don't seem to get out for many picnics although we often talk about having one. Buying this book is the inspiration behind getting us more motivated to enjoy many more picnics whatever the season.
