Picnic food

Jac went on a picnic with her niece and nephew and her mum Pattycakes recently. Jac told them she’d bring all the food, and she had great fun preparing and packing it.

She packed a container full of protein – homemade beef meatballs, chicken chipolatas, sliced ham and hard-boiled eggs, with a small container of tomato sauce for dipping the meatballs and chipolatas (the kids especially love eating sausages with tomato sauce).

Of course, Jac packed a balanced picnic lunch! She filled a container with fresh vegetables (carrot sticks, celery sticks, red capsicum, green beans, cucumber, grape tomatoes) and green seedless grapes. She packed the meat container and vegetable/fruit container into an esky with ice so everything would stay nice and cool and fresh during the drive to Whiteman Park.

Here’s the rest of the picnic booty ready to be loaded into the car: a container filled with ANZAC biscuits, chocolate Tiny Teddy biscuits and a selection of chocolates; bread and butter (crusts cut off the bread); a block of Tassie Trio cheese; packets of salad dressing and sachets of McDonald’s BBQ sauce (leftover from McDonald’s McNuggets); mixed nuts; soft jelly lollies; a selection of cups, bowls, plates, napkins, KFC moist towelettes; a picnic blanket and an old sarong (used as a second picnic blanket).

Jac's picnic stuff

I didn’t go along this time – I had computer problems to deal with, and since weekends are the only time I get to deal with stuff like that, I stayed home. Jac did leave me some meatballs, ham, sausage, egg and salad to eat for my lunch while she was out picnicking. :D
