One of my favourite things about summer is that you can sit and eat outside… it’s great for a few months of the year (in the UK at least!) to be able to enjoy food and fresh air at the same time! And my favourite ways of eating outside…
Going for a Picnic
I love packing up the cool bag with lots of goodies, grabbing a picnic blanket and heading off somewhere for a picnic in the sunshine! I don’t mind where we go – the local park, by the local reservoir, up a mountain, riverside… I’ll eat outside anywhere! And what’s in my cool box? Cheese/chicken sandwiches, salad, crisps, sausage/cheese and onion rolls, fruit, yogurts and water (and sometimes beer and wine if we’re not driving!)…
Having a BBQ
I’m a big BBQ fan – food tastes completely different cooked over the coals outside, doesn’t it? You just can’t beat burgers/sausages/fish done on the BBQ (or veggie burgers/sausages in my case!) with grilled vegetables. Washed down with a glass of white wine… what a perfect way to spend a summer afternoon!
The Camping Breakfast
One of my favourite things about camping is eating a full English breakfast – cooked outdoors – whilst sitting and enjoying the sunshine and admiring the view… I can’t think of a better (and more leisurely!) way to start the day!
I guess what I’m basically saying is that I think food tastes SO MUCH better eaten al fresco… Do you like to eat outdoors? If so, where’s your favourite place to go and eat outside and what do you like to eat when you get there?
