Similar to last night (read Picnic Pakistani Style), it is too hot to cook inside and too beautiful not to be among the poppies in jardin.
So cat and I set up for a picnic in jardin. Steaks and corn ready for the BBQ (see the anticipation look on cats' face?). Potatoes foiled and ready to bake.
But no way I am raising the house temperature by baking inside, so the toaster oven was set up in jardin and became part of the picnic.
Jardin lettuce was chopped for a salad.
In the spirit of the jardin theme, a raspberry dressing was developed.
Essentially, leftover raspberry sauce from Canada's 145th birthday party was mixed with some yogurt. A few springs of fresh jardin thyme were thrown into it. Some fresh pepper and a beautifully coloured salad dressing was ready.
Designer skills (not mine of course) were applied for the polka dot raspberry and lettuce salad bowl to go with the steaks.
And a beautiful picnic of steak, BBQ corn, baked potatoes with sour cream and jardin chives was enjoyed among the poppies.
