Is there ever a time when a cloth should not be spread out on the grass, after carefully kicking away the small stones and bits of leaves and tiny branches, hoping that for once, for only once – the laying-about will be as comfortable as seemingly promised, the food will not spill sideways or be attacked by bold wild flying insects, the wine will not spill on the shirt-front?
I don’t think so. It should always be time for a picnic, and I’ve been invited to one!
Louise at Months of Edible Celebrations is having a picnic, and the table has started to be laid. Are you curious to see what everyone is bringing? I am! And luckily I’ve got a list. Here’s what we’ll be eating:
Apple Pie with Dutch Crumb Topping from Miranda
Buttermilk Spice Cake from Mary
Chocolate Cherry Pie from Janet
Dilly Potato Salad from Gloria
Election Day Cake from Erica
Fruit Cocktail Meringue Pie from Erica
Gluten-Free Upside-Down Cake from Dia
Hangar Steak with Chimichurri Sauce from Stacey
Ice Cream in a Bag from Marjie
My gosh, what a lot of food! Incredible! Louise asked me to bring something I often seem to talk about.
It was kind of her to ask me to bring this, for it really is only an idea. No recipe. Just a silly poem and a picture. But my goodness, what a lot of recipes from this picnic! It’s best if I just bring some hot air, don’t you think?
The food looks great, everyone. See you at the picnic!
