5 Favourite Picnic Foods

Dr Tanya asks us what are our five favourite picnic foods, and in a perfect world I would ask that everything wasn’t fattening!
Family picnics were popular and as adults with families, we would all meet up somewhere and bring something for the table, so we had variety, and lots of grub!

Here are my favourite picnic foods (with a little leeway)

1. Hard boiled eggs, sliced ham and fresh bread rolls.
2. Sausage rolls.
3. Cheesecake.
4. Crisps.
5. Cheese, crackers and grapes.

Beverages aren’t food, so in another basket would be
1. Champagne (I wish)
2. Flasks of tea and coffee.
3. Fruit juice.
4. Soda.
5. Water.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    For me coffee is food as I cannot wake up or function without it. 😍

    If I’m having a picnic I tend toward fresh fruit – cherries and grapes and stone fruit to be eaten out of hand. We forego the sandwich for sardines or kippered herring with crackers (yummy). And what picnic would be complete without homemade chocolate mint chip cookies and an ice cold watermelon (and a seed spitting contest too).

    • Lovely. Our family picnics were always great and we’d finish off with a scrabble. This was wrapped sweets tossed up in the air for the younger kids to collect. On the last family picnic, it was nice to see my foster boy of the time helping the little ones. Happy days and memories Val.

  4. What are crisps? We do have the love of cheesecake in common.

  5. Ooh !
    Love your baskets except for the champagne and ham as my faith forbids them
    The rest sounds absolutely delicious.
