This might very well be the perfect picnic because it includes all the things I miss from Spain: good bread, tortilla de patatas, sun-ripened fruits; oranges, cherries and grapes, a wonderful variety of cheeses, a lovely vermouth and, of course, too many olives.
I'm actually not a fan of outdoor picnics; I'm apt to spend more time looking at the insects that show up than actually enjoying the food. However, a glass of wine and some good cheese with a beautiful view and good company is always welcome.
Picnics feel nostalgic to me, and nostalgia feels like my mother. She was a terrible cook but excellent baker and could put together a wonderful picnic spread. Strawberry shortcake was something that we used to make together and sounds lovely for a summer picnic.
Gather what's ripe in the garden, a blanket, vintage milk glass vase for wildflowers, your straw hat, and some cool drinks and find a pretty field midsummer. If you're lucky, a red-winged blackbird will join you on the rustic fence while the sunflowers and morning glories bloom amongst the rustling corn.
