What's In My Picnic Basket? (Feeding 3 Adults & A Baby)

The sun has been shining, the days have been warm and me and baby girl have spent a lot of time in our local park. I've been so looking forward to this time of year and I'm so happy summer is pretty much here.

Last weekend a small group of us decided to have a picnic. It was such a nice day. We lay down a picnic blanket, grazed, played with baby girl and lay in the sun all afternoon.

I was responsible for the picnic basket and by Saturday evening I realised I hadn't arranged anything so I decided to rummage through my fridge and cupboards and put some bits together, have a quick baking session to make some mini quiches and write a small list of things to purchase from Sainsbury's. We had a feast and all enjoyed it so I thought I would do a post on what's in my picnic basket just in case  you are looking for some inspiration this summer.




I believe the secret to a good picnic basket is plenty of refreshments, lots of variety and some freshly baked goods.
  1. Sparking water
  2. Soft drinks (coke zero is my secret addiction)
  3. Breadstick
  4. Homemade pizza (This was leftovers from the night before, made up go leftovers -thrifty much?) Wholemeal wrap bread, with a tomato sauce base and topped with sweetcorn, peppers, onion and mozzarella cheese)
  5. Pea & cream cheese fritters - also left overs. I have a recipe for these on my blog. Just substitute the sweet corn for peas.
  6. Cucumber & carrot sticks
  7. Piri piri hummus
  8. Butternut squash and asparagus mini quiches. I posted the recipe for these on Tuesday.
  9. Kettle Crisps - Matture cheddar and red onion
  10. Organix carrot sticks for baby girl
  11. Blueberries
  12. Ella's kitchen apple pouch for baby girl
  13. Mexicana cheddar cheese. This stuff is the bomb dignity, if you haven't tried it you really should!
  14. Ready made sweet leaf salad
  15. Butter, for the bread of course.
  16. Mateus rose wine. This is lovely, fresh and a little bit sparkly. Perfect for summer.
  17. Tomato Ketchup
  18. Sweet onion relish
  19. Chocolate cake - OK I cheated on the baking front with this but it was SO good.
  20. Paper Plates
  21. Plastic Cups
  22. Straws
  23. Disposable Cutlery
  24. Blanket


OK so it might not be a picnic basket but this super large tote I picked up from American Apparel fit everything in and is really durable. I use it so much.

    1. Me too! Which is not such a good thing haha. This was a vegetarian picnic sense lacking the meat but brie would have been an excellent addition that I'll have to remember next time. K x
