Then, we had Caprese Salad which also had fresh basil from our herb garden. I am thinking of making my own mozzarella one day to really kick this dish up a notch.
Freshly baked Italian bread was served with all dishes. I had just made a loaf of bread that morning and it was still warm and soft. Oh how I love Italian bread :)
Then a bit of hummus to go with the Italian bread. We make our own hummus so it is actually a healthy appetizer. And a bit spicy.
Next was southwest pasta salad. I found a quick recipe online that combined pasta, black beans, corn, tomatoes, and mayo. To spice it up a little, I added some fresh racao (a cilantro like herb) and salsa.
Then some sliced apples followed by homemade chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Maybe I spoil Aaron a bit too much? :)
The picnic was amazing! We had a beautiful sunset, candles glowing, Aaron playing the guitar, and the waves rolling in. I can't believe we haven't done this more often. I am already planning on the next picnic ;)
