a picnic pamper


I love a picnic, and it doesn’t have to be a special occasion to joins friends for a late summer gathering. Our picnic blankets were covered with a splash of bright colours and with fitting food to match. Our outdoor meal consisted of a Potato Salad, Baby Rocket & Parmesan Salad, Nutty Bean Salad, Sausages on the grill followed by toasted marshmallows and an upside-down plum cake. We didn't pack our finest china, but we did bring real dishes for the setting and to reduce the rubbish.   After the feast, it was time for the children to sail their colourful paper boat on the lake with the company of nosey swans.

This stew was made for my hubby, he's been busy helping me hang pictures on the wall for my photography exhibition...just one more sleep to go!

frozen blackberry yogurt

frozen black berry

It was a pleasant surprise this autumn to find unblemished blackberries at our local food markets. I put these slight tangy fruits straight into use with this frozen dessert.
