The signs of Spring have finally started appearing. This past week we saw sunshine nearly everyday and the temperatures were in the double digits — finally! I know everyone in the Northern Hemisphere is as excited as I am about the arrival of warmer weather, sunshine and all of the outdoor activities that come with the new season.
One of the things I am most looking forward to is spending time outdoors. My husband and I love going for long walks to breathe in the fresh air and see nature come back to life. The trees blossoming, wild flowers popping up in the fields, and birds chirping, it’s all very zen.
Another thing we see many people doing, and one I too like to do, is have a picnic on a green field. Usually it involves food that travels well and of course, completes the whole outdoor dinning experience. To make the cleanup minimal I always pack disposable tableware that can be disposed of in the recycling bins.
A picnic cannot be complete without a little something sweet, like this Apple Cinnamon Bread Pudding. I shared the recipe for it nearly two years ago and it is one of my favorites. My recipe is based on a Czech and Slovak bread pudding called Zemlovka, and it makes great picnic food. (click photo for recipe link)
I can’t wait to have our first picnic. And you, what are you most looking forward to this spring?
