Picnic in the Park

Spouse wanted to have a picnic tonight, but since we had no picnic basket, I balked. Goodwill to the rescue! He found a never-used (tag still on, utensils still sealed) basket with plates, cups and utensils. So I prepped a meal and off we went to Dorchester Heights with a blanket and food.

Sure is sunny!

Spouse confirms the time of the historical places bike ride he's going on tonight (it's midnight-6am and goes 30 miles)

And if you're interested, the meal was a caprese salad (tomato, basil and onion all local), oven chips with salt and rosemary (local potato), carrot and leek gratin and cod poached in proseco with rosemary, garlic and lemongrass.

Looks romantic, AND delish!

It has been so long since I have found the time to comment on others blogs, what with my move and all. This looked like it was a fun day. Sometimes I miss the city. I hope your hubby's bike tour was a success.

The bike tour started with over 300 people and ended with about 50, one of which was Spouse!

I'm only just getting back into reading my favourite blogs (life issues that ACTION was not nearly enough for, but we won't bring up that discussion again) and have a lot of catching up to do on yours. I feel like I'm catching up with old friends just be reading your and Jitterbug's back posts

I am glad and welcome back old friend. Congrats to your hubby, that is amazing! I hope your 'life issues' are ironed out or in the least not too insane. Maybe some day in the future we could meet in the real world, a trip to Beantown for tea, one never knows.

I'm still playing catchup on blogs and saw your Victory Week campaign! I bought on UK rations (for various years) for a few months and found it actually quite easy. I did, however, have copies of the Ministry of Food pamphlets for the time though, so that make cooking on a ration quite easy.

I would love to meet you for tea sometime!

Looks like you had a good time in the park. I'll have to make the meal, thanks for the tip.
