My niece recently pointed out this gorgeous and very inspirational image from a French magazine, Campagne Décoration -- it is the quintessential French 'pique-nique' don't you think? It makes me want to dream up a delicious fresh summer menu--and pack it into a basket -- to tote off to a table under a tree -- or the beach!
Mid-August, gardens right now in France are exploding and the markets are brimming....
I love the idea of packing up fresh fruit, seasonal 'composed' salads, olives and dips....
... into antique French confiture jars!
The thick-sided jars, chilled in the fridge, so everything stays fresh and cool!
As the summer winds-down, I hope you can still sneak in some time for one last French-picnic ... or two! I know I will!
