The weather has been so unpredictable in Colorado lately. It snowed on mother’s day and its been raining like crazy. But when its not raining the weather has been warm, the grass is green, and I’m craving a picnic.
Who doesn’t love an old fashioned picnic? When you combine delicious food, family, fresh air, and sunshine — it’s the perfect recipe for a delightful outing.
But the recipe for a successful picnic doesn’t end there. You’ll need a variety of basic supplies within easy reach throughout the duration of your outing. Watch my video where I share how to pack a picnic basket.
Pack a serape and make some of my favorite recipes for a Mexican-style picnic: simple, quick, and tasty tortas, fresh, crunchy, and spicy mango, jicama, and cucumber salad, refreshing agua de jamaica (hibiscus tea) for the kids, and a nice bottle of wine for the adults.
