    pic·nic /ˈpikˌnik/ noun
    an outing or occasion that involves taking a packed meal to be eaten outdoors

    So for this picnic, I didn't venture far...I packed a meal for our patio! 


    Slice bread to 1/2-inch thick—any thinner and your bread might fall apart.

    • bread, sliced
    • olive oil
    • salt
    • Also needed: baking sheet, parchment paper (optional), silicone brush

    Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easier clean-up (optional).

    Lightly brush both sides of each slice with olive oil. This is usually about 2 to 3 Tablespoons of oil for a sheetful of toasts.

    Arrange slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake them on the middle rack of the preheated oven. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes until they’re crisped and golden brown. Turn half way through.

    Sprinkle the toasts lightly with salt. Transfer the toasts to a serving platter, if desired, and top with smoked salmon salad.

    Smoked Salmon Salad

    • 4 ounces smoked salmon
    • 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese
    • freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste
    • freshly ground salt
    • freshly ground pepper
    • 1 Tablespoon fresh chopped parsley plus more for garnish

    Place the salmon and cream cheese in the bowl of a food processor. Add in lemon juice and pulse until desired consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Blitz in the parsley. Scoop onto toasts and sprinkle with more parsley as needed.

    That's a wrap for this week's event. The #SundayFunday crew will be back next week to share their favorite quinoa recipes. Stay tuned!


    1. Kids would love this toast with smoked salmon filling. Looks good

    2. You would have to fight me to get the bowl of this smoked salmon dip out of my hands.

    3. Camilla thanks for sharing this recipe. Am sure hubby will be happy if I carry smoked salmon salad one day for our picnic.

    Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

    If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

    Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

    To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P

    Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

    photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
