Perfect

Last week when Bob was on assignment at Tygart's Lake, he recalled a time some 40 years ago when we took carryout there and had a "picnic".  We were young college students with not much money, so those KFC Chicken and Slaw combos were treasures. . . as was our special time together.  No pictures, probably due to not having much money and the fact we carried cameras with black and white film we developed ourselves.

So we both spontaneously planned a similar adventure in present time.  This time I baked the chicken and he packed the side dishes.  We stopped at a local bakery and got a loaf of fresh baked bread and went to Morris Park in nearby Fairmont, West Virginia.  Everything was perfect:  the meal, the park, the pavilion, weather and certainly the company.  And this time I have pictures!

The penny on the layout is from 1973, the year we met:
The wooden mushroom embellishments are Recollections from Michaels:
Here's a closeup of our meal:
The mesclun mix and tomato are from my container garden.  The chicken is baked with Mrs. Dash seasoning.  The 7 Grain Bread is from New Day Bakery and was still warm!  I post meal pictures on the West Virginia Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Facebook page routinely.  Like the page if you'd like to see more.
