Packing A Picnic

We are going on a drive up through the mountains with Mike and Lauren today and we all thought it would be fun to bring along a picnic lunch. Lauren and I both LOVE to cook, so I know we will have a ton of food, and it will only be for the four of us. Lauren and I are both feeders. 🙂

We bought some croissants and chips, plus I am bringing a little corn and tomato salad. I made a pesto chicken salad for the croissants. I was going to bring fruit as well, but Lauren said she has the fruit covered. I know for a fact, between the two of us, no one will ever go hungry, and today will be no exception. 🙂

My pesto chicken salad was made from little bits of this and that, you know, one of my favorite ways to cook. It is loaded with diced chicken, and then I added some diced red bell pepper, diced celery and some diced red onion. I also added some fresh basil as well. I mixed it all together with a pesto mayonnaise. It will go perfectly on my croissants. It’s all just perfect for a picnic.

It’s going to be a beautiful day, and it should be much cooler up in the mountains. We will be sharing the day with good friends and good food. Life is definitely good. 🙂

Stay cool, stay safe and stay well Everyone. Enjoy all your days for tomorrow is never promised. ‘Til next time.
