Recipe for a Leisurely Picnic with a Toddler

Okay, so we finally had a picnic- in BACOLOD! In case you're wondering where there, you'd be surprise. And if you're from there, you'd think it's funny.

Here's what you need.

a picnic basket
a mat or a large blanket
a ball
1 large bowl
measuring cup and spoon

1 clear, breezy afternoon
1 small carton of milk
1 small carton of juice
1 bottle of Chardonnay
1 basketful of snacks
6 lb. of grass
1 gallon of excitement
2 cups of laughter
1 pint of creativity
10 loads of energy

Preheat your afternoon to a pleasant 25°Celsius. Mix in all ingredients in a large bowl except for the grass and the ball. Pour into a pan and bake for 20 minutes. When done, sprinkle with grass and top with a ball. Serve with a smile, some small toys, and a light read. Enjoy for 2 hours.  

Suffice to say, it was a success. Thanks to the hedonist in us, Le Misch and I are able to find yet another pleasurable and enriching activity without having to spend a lot.

Try it! It's such an easy recipe!
