Over the Weekend: A spring picnic (a recipe too!)

A Spring Picnic

Over the weekend, while erin was hard at work, my roommate emma and I drove out to david's land to take pictures for one of my photography assignments. We figured while we were out in the country it was most definitely the perfect excuse to have a spring inspired picnic!

We had such a wonderful time. It was still a bit chilly and pretty windy, but emma and I were way past due on some one on one roommate bonding time so it was well worth it. We ended up getting some pretty awesome pictures for my assignment and our bellies were full of awesome food.

We ate...

Springtime tropical salad:
1 pineapple
2 red peppers
2 avocados
a bundle of green onions
greens from your garden (we got cale and spinach from emma's parents garden)
juice of two limes
olive oil & salt to taste

chop and mix your greens and veggies and throw in a large bowl. Then add lime juice, olive oil, and salt and stir!

Strawberry Avocado Baguette Bites:
1 wheat baguette
a box of strawberries
goat cheese
1 avocado

slice your baguette into one inch sections and spread a layer of goat cheese on to each. Then add a thin slice of strawberry and avocado to each one.

What a wonderful way to spend a saturday afternoon and unwind from the week! I hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!

love, (e plus ) l
