While out enjoying the sun with a companion I offered to arrange a picnic for the following weekend. Now, with time on my hands, I am wondering what people have found best to bring out on these sunny days?
My first thoughts go to the basics - blanket, chicken/beef sandwiches and a bottle of water and champaign.
Searching around turned up ideas such as a sealed bag of ice cubes in the bottom of the basket to keep everything cool to a simple appetizer or desert of grapes and cheese.
Only recently coming from a rather wet climate my picnic skills are more than a little rusty!
Much depends on temperature... Here is the basic equipment
Cotton Blanket - No wool it itches
Plates - No paper or cheap plastic
Silverware - No plastic
Cups - higher quality & bring 4, 2 for wine, 2 for water
Higher grade napkins
Small Citronella Candle
Wet Naps for clean up
Grilled Italian Chicken (Cook & Slice in advance, marinate in italian dressing and grill)
Fresh Veggies - (No Broccoli, think teeth)
Mini loaf of French Bread
Cheeses Sliced - Jack, Cheddar
Fresh Strawberries & Kiwi, cleaned & sliced
Crisp White Wine to your preference (Only 1 bottle)
2 Liters Water
Most everything will fit in a backpack and you can put the cold items in a small, soft luch cooler with a freezer pack. The wine will stay cold if you wrap it in a towel for an hour or so.

Greetings!I am Chris and I am 25. I live in Greece and I suppose I am here because I would like to have some meaningful conversations, the kind I, for some reason, get in real life, in day-to-day life.I am studying to become a programmer, I am almost done and starting to think about my actual future in the workforce, while at the same time a lot of my opinions have changed lately. I feel like I'm going through a second puberty... A good thing I suppose, I am becoming a better me! And I would…See More
