One of my favorite summertime activities are picnics. In the city. In the country. At the beach. And even, when the weather is too hot for venturing outside, setting up shop in my living room in front of my maxed-out air conditioner. While it's fun to plan and prepare a delicious menu and pack a vintage basket, many a delightful impromptu picnic has been made by grabbing some of your favorite take out foods and simply heading to the park. Below I've added my go-to menus for a quick-prep picnics. My old standby for summer beach days are sandwiches piled high with local veggies and cheddar cheese with just a hint of herb mayo. My love of avocados was acquired eating these sandwiches during summer weeks spent with a friend's family on Nantucket. One of my favorite new menu recipes involve cured meats, cheeses and jams; variations have been enjoyed at outdoor concerts at Boston's Hatch Shell every Wednesday.
