    Bacon-wrapped dates! Easy to cook up, travel well, delicious hot or cold. Damn it, now I really want some right now...

      Smoked salmon, caviar, salad ingredients with lettuce as the star ... and Champagne. It's that easy. Oh, boiled eggs.









      Our 10th Anniversary. Out for a great evening walk, enjoying the summer sun and sunset ... and a banging picnic.

        I'll tell you what I'm bringing to the picnic I'm going on tomorrow: skewers of sausage, roast peppers, and sweet onion; deviled eggs (homemade mayo); and lemon blueberry scones (recipe from elanaspantry)

        P.S. That salmon and caviar looks amazing.
        Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

            Big @$$ salads are easy to take if you have a big bowl with a lid

            fresh fruit & goat cheese for dessert!

              can you cook where you are picnicking and how far do you have to carry the food?

                I love doing crudité. Too often it's a bag of baby carrots and a tub of ranch-flavored soybean oil...

                My version:
                radish quarters, cucumber (zebra peel, diagonal cut), snap peas, green beans, grape tomatoes, celery, proper carrot sticks

                dips:
                guacamole
                tapenade
                mascarpone w/ cayenne sauce and red pepper flakes
                tahini w/ garlic and lemon juice
                37//6'3"/185

                  I cannot cook where we'll be picnicking. I'll be walking nearly a mile, but I plan to put the food in a little rolling cooler that I can pull along.

                  Thanks for all of the ideas so far - and the fabulous photos!

                    For something flashy, try making a layered "scotch egg" with different meats and seasonings and all wrapped and baked in bacon.

                      Haha! Not easy to beat smoked salmon, caviar and Champagne.

                      In all seriousness, we've done just that a few times. The combination is very good indeed: fatty fish, posh fish eggs and some fun with a good bottle of fizz, get outdoors, enjoy the walk, the run, the sun, the sunset ... THAT's what picnicing is about. The food is second to the fun of being out there.

                      Primal eating can enjoy very little, so long as it's good in all the right things, and that includes fun.

                      But the food is just right: again, fatty fish (smoked mackerel would do as well) as the focus, something fun to drink and an egg ... eggs rule.
