I remember that when I was a kid we used to go on an adventure often. I and my sisters made sandwiches and pancakes, picked some berries and packed a bag full of treats just in case we got hungry when we were “discovering the world”. As soon as we got out of the house we headed to the lilac bushes in our backyard and started to eat our food.  It was so nice to lay on a blanket, enjoy the sunshine and good food.

Now, as soon as the summer comes, I’m starting to plan picnics. It’s a great way to get out of the city, enjoy nature and spend quality time with my family.

After a couple of hours discovering nature and playing with our daughter, we are famished. It seems that whenever we are eating outdoors, everything seems to taste better! That’s why I always pack a delicious picnic basket, where there is a favorite dish for everyone.
