Enjoy a nice picnic with your family on a great day in a park. Pack a picnic lunch, spread a blanket, and enjoy your day.
We've come across a great magazine, Clouds. Clouds is a quarterly published Lithuanian food bloggers' magazine which highlights seasonal foods.
Begin your picnic with a refreshing salad of greens and edible flowers! Using the petals of Busy Lizzies (Impatiens Walleriana) and petals of Cloves (Dianthus), mixed with arugula and spinach, pine nuts and cherry tomatoes, Clouds took our palate on an adventure with their scrumptious Rainbow Salad! This salad can be had with a variety of dressings ranging from simple - olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper - to the very complex.
Then, open up your appetite with Raspberry Blackberry Jam. In this quarter's magazine, Summer 2014, various types of berries and succulent fruits are featured in jams and desserts. Our favorite is the brownie, ricotta and strawberry trifle in a jar!
Then onto your main course of Honey and Beer Chicken served with marinated and skewered grilled summer vegetables (cauliflower, zucchini, green onions, and button mushrooms). Marinades are another great way to celebrate the various herbs of summer. Pickled bell peppers can be added to this dish.
End your picnic with a cupcake. The Black Forest Cupcake served with whip cream is a great way to enjoy the sunset and watch the birds come to roost in the top of the trees. Enjoy this with the wide assortment of natural fruit juices found in the magazine.
Clouds is a free magazine available on Issuu. Readers can savor 168 pages of great tasting recipes that highlight the beauty and simplistic delights of good food while making use of seasonal fruits and vegetables!
