Has Spring Sprung?
We usually grill at local parks on nice days, but neither of us had the energy to deal with charcoal and coolers and all that. I sent Chuk to the store with instructions to “get things for a picnic in France. I don’t want to use utensils.” He came back with two types of salami, strawberries, a baguette and a bottle of fizzy blueberry lemonade. We had a block of cheddar cheese in the fridge and we threw it in a canvas bag with the groceries, a small cutting board, a knife, two cups and two napkins. We grabbed a quilt Chuk’s mother made years ago and a box of Trivial Pursuit cards and headed out. It couldn't have been easier. Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best: relaxing on our blanket in the sunshine, nibbling and asking each other questions.
