Pack the Ultimate Beach Picnic
This past weekend, my land-locked soul headed south to the ocean. Even a six hour drive could not deter my primal need to feel the sand in my toes, the ocean breeze on my skin and LOTS of fresh New England seafood in my tummy. I returned home happy with a renewed love of life. The highlight of my mini getaway was an impromptu picnic on the beach. Left over lobster from the night before, a bottle of chilled Sauvignon Blanc (picked up from the local liquor store at a price that makes this Canadian get excited) with the ocean as my backdrop. Perfect. Paradise. You may not have an ocean to picnic at but why not pack up a seaside-inspired meal and head outdoors – I promise, it will do your psyche good.
The Lobster Roll
Try this decadent and delicious lobster specialty. The origin of this recipe is unknown, but it probably stems from the 1920s. One thing is certain: it is easy to prepare and decadently delicious.
New England-Style Potato Salad
The perfect side!
Add an over sized blanket, a couple of forks, napkins, wine glasses and your favourite bottle of chilled Sauvignon Blanc and voila, the ultimate beach picnic. Oh, don’t forget to bring along your favourite someone…
