Had I really planned something today I would have brought a picnic on our walk through the Nature Park. We live in Burgbernheim, Germany, and the majority of Burgbernheim is a Nature Area where people from all over Germany come to walk, or Nordic walk through the forest.
So some Picnic food Ideas:

- Curried Egg Salad in Pita Pockets: (Its a step up from that egg salad sandwich Pee Wee Herman ate from his lady friend in Big Top Pee Wee Herman) http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2012/05/curried-egg-salad-in-mini-pitas
- Hummus and Feta Sandwiches on Whole Grain Bread (Chickpeas are great for you)
Salads: As those above that you used as a spread, a pasta salad, potato salad, even a slaw. Fruit Salads a possibility also.
- Melon Slaw: http://www.countryliving.com/recipefinder/melon-slaw-clv0807
- Roasted Garlic, Olive and Tomato Salad: http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-roasted-6-26905
Fruit: Dried or fresh
If you have any recipes you would like to share, feel free to comment. My husband just ordered a tent. We are hoping to do some camping here in Germany before the warm season goes away. I will be looking for some easy recipes to prepare ahead of time for a camping trip. I’m sure we will be cooking over the fire a bit, but having some food already prepared will make it all the better.
