Even thinking about a picnic I get excited and want to pack and go. Some essentials are important to bring and not forget although I believe a picnic is more about feeling adventurous & free and less about contents of your basket. Whilst creating this piece I was transferred to this magical meadow with the breathtaking view and felt as if I was enjoying that shade without leaving my home. I hope looking at my Picnic Recipe takes you somewhere beautiful or inspires you to finally organise that trip you've been dreaming off. :)
Carrying along an indigo Picnic blanket, some Pomegranate juice, some Kashmiri Chai, a conversational kettle, a few coconut dipped banana chips, some veggie samosas with ketchup, overnight marinated chicken tandoori drenched in clarified butter/ghee, even a few chicken kebabs so I get my veggies( zucchini, yellow and red pepper), a ciabatta just incase we have too much of the red wine and some healthy fruits like grapes and strawberry. Most importantly a friend to chill out with ample social distance.
When Dad had a new deck built at the farm, we celebrated with a picnic! If you ignore all the chores associated with farm life, Dad had an idyllic life: fresh vegetables every day (that he started from seed - I can still smell the dirt baking from sterilizing), a cutting garden that he actually used (I "could" pick my flowers any time I want to!), and the best view (first the pond, then the sheep pen and beyond to the gardens and fruit trees). In fact, other than this inaugural day, we tried to never sit with our back to the yard. Dad was also the first person I know who mixed herbs with his annuals, so a supply of parsley, etc. was always available to add to your plate. You simply had to know that the ornamental peppers were just that! And, we started every meal with a toast to the farm: Via Via!
This is my Watercolour Illustration of my son having a wonderful, fun picnic with his toys and surrounded by some of his favorite foods. It includes a lot of fruit which he can't get enough of. You might even spot a few bees in there, this is an insect he loves and I love them too, if it wasn't for bees we wouldn't have all the food we do have.
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!
Bright and playful layout featuring picnic foods, basket, and sneaky little ants making off with bits of it all! Bold and limited color palette, hand-lettering and a subtle grid pattern in the background nods to the classic picnic blanket.
