‘summer picnic under the blooming apple trees’

Over the weekend, my hubby and I had a picnic in an apple garden that was filled with beautiful fragrant white flowers. We sat in the shade, sipped on mint water and nibbled on buttery croissants with a beetroot cabbage dip. I made some asparagus fries and a watermelon salad that were perfect for a hot day. We walked around the park sipping on lattes letting Bella roam free in the grass. We have had two weeks of pure hot weather and the nature is showing it’s very best at the moment. All the trees are in full bloom and it is the best time to take advantage of summery picnics.

Hope this gives a little picnic inspo: Find the recipe for the asparagus fries here and the recipe for the watermelon salad follows: Mix together chopped watermelon, feta, mint leaves. Lastly, mix in some of the homemade pesto.

Easy Pesto

  • 1 tablespoon grated garlic
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • pinch of Salt/ ground black pepper

Pulse in a blender into green delicious paste. Add salt and pepper to taste
