Picnics

 

  • Sunday Afternoon Wine and Cheese Picnic August 18, 2013My Sunday afternoon picnic today is a simple one.  Not every picnic needs to be elaborate and involve a lot of food.  This one would be considered a light refreshment type picnic, not a “full meal deal”. Really, all that is needed for this picnic is a good quality baguette, some cold cuts, tasty cheese of ...
  • Labour Day Picnic by the PEI Seaside with Lobster Croissants on the Menu August 31, 2013 I’ve had a great summer of picnics this year!  Haven’t gone on this many picnics in many years.  I had forgotten how much fun and relaxed al fresco dining can be.  This posting will feature my Labour Day Weekend Picnic but, first, a little trip down memory lane. One of my favorite summertime memories involves a ...

There are advantages to having a picnic at ...
  • A PEI Picnic in the Park August 4, 2013 I like picnics.  My earliest memories of picnics consist of Sunday family drives on the Island with a stop at a park for a picnic lunch.  My Mom would have prepared the traditional picnic fare of tomato sandwiches along with ham and cheese sandwiches, too.  These would have been packed up in the airtight Tupperware ...
  • A Beach-Themed Picnic July 20, 2013Ever heard of the expression “the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray”?   Well, that was somewhat my case today. It’s been a hot, dry summer so far on PEI, and today was forecast to be 31C and very humid.  I had been planning a beach picnic for some time and last evening ...
