All the best picnics I've been on have the same three ingredients - my favorite people, amazing views, and delicious food.
This scene depicts a typical picnic at this stage in my life - munching on a spread of olives, pita chips, hummus, veggies, almonds and cookies with my husband and three boys while taking in views of whatever beautiful mountain trail we happen to be hiking. Don't forget to wash it down with some summit seltzer and snap a few pics to remember the feast!
My entry for the Handpicked Picnic Challenge 🌄
Seattle, Washington, US
One of my favorite picnic memories is taking our kids when they were little hiking up on Mt. Rainier. We often stopped at an overlook and had a yummy picnic lunch consisting of sandwiches, berries, cheeses, apples, nuts, and something good to drink. Summer at Mt. Rainier is breathtaking and beautiful and makes for a perfect picnic backdrop!

I've never met a French toast I didn't like. Even your run-of-the-mill egg and white bread French toast is pretty tasty. But when you want something extra special or could use a little Vitamin C boost (strawberry and orange, vitamin power couple!), treat yourself to this fruity stuffed French toast.
