By the sea, by the beautiful sea.

Spent a lovely evening at the beach with the family. My M-I-L put together an outrageous picnic with bratwursts, potato salad, deviled eggs, chips, spinach dip, chili, feta and olives and a thermos of tea. Does everything taste better out of doors? On a balmy summer night, yes, yes it does.

We also made S'mores, a dessert that can't possibly be on any restaurant menu, because, done proper, it requires hot coals. When I was a Scout, long ago, we joked that to make S'mores one must eat the chocolate, burn the marshmallow and throw the graham cracker away. However, the Wonderhub toasted a golden brown, slightly crunchy on the outside, marshmallow and served it up open face on a graham cracker with melted chocolate squished on top. Darn tasty!

Tired and time for sleep.

What's your favorite out-of-doors food?

  2. Buttered toast! I love to take my cuppa tea and toast out in the early morning for a small walk about the garden before everything is steaming hot.
    I like your new venue here.
