In order to commemorate the 23rd anniversary of my birth, I chose to have a picnic! I’d never had a birthday picnic, but it seemed just right: low key and a good way to spend time outside. We set up our spot at the park about 1 ½ blocks from my house, in a shaded area surrounded by flowers and trees.
On the menu: Black Forest ham and cheddar cheese sandwiches,
And for dessert…dark chocolate and double chocolate brownies (from a box)
I had many picnics when I was a student in France. Most of them involved a baguette, paté, cornichon (French pickles), and cheese…most likely Camembert. Finding the Camembert the other day inspired this birthday picnic!
