When it comes to picnics my philosophy is to have them as often as possible. Whether it's at the beach, your local park or just in your front yard, there is something so childlike and freeing about packing up a meal to be eaten while frolicking outdoors...On Sunday, I put together a light lunch to enjoy with V and my Mom on our lawn. I kept the spread super simple with garlic scape pesto, tomato and mozzarella sandwiches. I also laid out some fruits and vegetables for snacking. We picked our usual spot under the shade of the tulip tree, set-up the outdoor speakers, and sipped on a bottle of Riesling from the vineyard up the road. It was a lovely way to spend the afternoon before heading back to the city.
