To start your picnic food ideas for two I thought you might like to see an actual picnic ...
one of the car picnic ideas... use as an example.
A freezing winters day, although it looked like a lovely sunny day and thoughts were of sitting out on the grass. But the only outside venture was to quickly move the basket from the back seat to the front between the two seats of the car!
It's fun to use these picnic ideas in the middle of winter when you need to escape from the four walls of home,
eat something yummy, then, weather permitting, perhaps head out for a brisk walk.
This picnic was a quick decision, sun shining, grabbed the picnic food, the bottle of wine,
filled the thermos with coffee, checked the picnic planning ideas… headed off!
These picnic ideas for two can be used for any picnic and you can adjust to your favorite food... check picnic lunch ideas.
Choosing your own food, then making your own sandwich at the picnic, is a bit of fun... and makes it quicker to plan and pack at home.
