It has been crazy busy lately. I finally finished preserving all my pears, thank goodness. While I have still managed to cook and even bake it has been too busy to take pictures. So today I present to you a family favorite, picnic time.
Now that the weather cooled off and it isn’t too hot outside anymore we enjoy eating on the porch. Picnics are always good inside too, we call them carpet picnics! Even better if you wait til the kids go to bed and enjoy some adult time. Our favorites are simple: a variety of cheeses, salami, grapes, apples, crackers, fresh bread…. The possibilities are endless. Of course cocktails or wine for the adults, kiddie cocktails for the kids. Sean and Ewan recently discovered a love for pâté too!
These are leftover meatballs from dinner the night before. They make a perfect appetizer! The recipe is great, check out these meatballs in coconut curry sauce at My Favourite Pastime. I made them with lamb and the sauce was superb. Should you have any left, put a stick on them and you have an instant appetizer!
