Picnic in the Park

Memorial Day weekend at the beginning of summer deserves a special picnic in the park.  We packed a cold meal and traveled to a nearby West Virginia Park at Tygart's Lake.  Here's my menu:

Salmon with Pineapple Mandarin Salsa
Sesame Quinoa Salad
Strawberry Cream Pie Parfaits

The Salmon is one of the signature salads we serve in our Healthy Cafe.

Paper plates are not in my cupboards, so I packed the red, white & blue table settings to accent our fun meal.

My Australian scrapbook friend, Cheryl, sent me an envelope of beautiful papers, embellishments and a $2 Australian coin!  When I opened the surprise package, Bob pointed out that the die cut paper looked like a placemat.  I love pretty dishes and table settings to complement my home cooked meals.  A food page was eminent.  

I have been spending much of my creative time on preparing healthy meals and posting these and recipes on my new blog, cindyshealthymeals.blogspot.com.

Here's the link to our Red, White and Blue Picnic:
