There’s something amazing about summertime that just makes you want to spend the whole day outside. One way we like to enjoy summer is by having a meal in the great outdoors while the sun shines. And naturally, this means having a picnic with friends!
It also meant eating good food in a pretty place. We chose a citrus ranch park that had lots of lemon trees. We packed up our items in a picnic basket, brought some trusty blankets with us, and set up our picnic in the middle of the lemon trees. A little confession: we talked about preparing some of the food, about maybe even doing a tiny blog post about what we made. But as the picnic day loomed closer we thought, forget it. We live in a great place that is populated by lots of shops selling good food. Why not just go buy some before the picnic? So that is what we did. We basically have a sponsored (but not really) picnic.
We bought donuts from Sidecar Doughnuts, which we believe have some of the best gourmet donuts out there. And we also bought a couple savory pies from Pie-Not, an Australian-style pie place. These two types of food made for a great brunch style picnic.
We hope we can encourage you to go outside, explore a little, and share a meal with a loved one. Happy eating!
