Oh how I have been dreaming of an outdoor kitchen. I don’t know about you, but I have grown tired of the kitchen…not only is it hot in there, but it is in there… aka not outside where we want to spend all of our time lately.
I prefer to grow food rather than cook it anyway, but mostly because I just love being outside. So an outdoor kitchen….would be the answer to my prayers….but in the meantime I have been figuring how to eat well outside, while spending as little time as possible inside…. yes the picnic…So I thought I would share a few recipes I have been delighted with lately and if you have any tips, recipes or secrets of summer food….please share.
The idea behind all this of course, is you spend a day in the kitchen and then freeze your picnic ready snacks so you can grab them, throw them in the picnic basket and by the time everyone is hungry, food is thawed and perfect for munching. These recipes are for Killer Hummus, Pita from scratch, and Whole Wheat Sourdough Pita, as I am a big sourdough fan.
All are easy and seriously good, and of course freeze really well so they are ready when you are to go outside.
