Beach Party!

August is the perfect month for outdoor eating. Invite friends and family to a picnic-at the beach, in the park, on top of a mountain or even in your own garden.

August is the perfect month for outdoor eating. Invite friends and family to a picnic–at the beach, in the park, on top of a mountain or even in your own garden. As a host or hostess, you’re responsible for providing enough food-it’s the heart of a picnic. I have looked for recipes that both tantalize your taste buds and are nutritious–salsas, spicy dips, wraps and veggie balls. They’ll all help to make your picnic memorable.

My picnic memories include children playing in the sand and adults strolling leisurely, joking or sometimes engulfed in serious discussions. You can play ball or frisbee, even horseshoes and croquet-the picnic spot suggests the activity.

Don’t forget to supply enough drinks. On a hot day people dehydrate quickly. Practise safe food-handling techniques and use a cooler for drinks, salads, salsas and dips. I hope you enjoy the month of August and have many picnics!
