Growing up in Miami, I never really understood the concept of a “season.” I mean, it’s hot or not so hot. We had the occasional cold day and many rainy days. More recently, we are concerned most of all with “hurricane season,” which is somewhat of a new phenomena stirring up a lot of anxiety in the South Florida area (as well as other coastal areas too, I’m sure). It’s not that we didn’t have hurricanes before, but we never had so many that the region had to be on guard for the whole season. But, I digress. My point is that since Miami was pretty much always warm, I never thought about the luxury of eating outside.
Currently, I live in Ann Arbor, where it has just started to warm up after months of up and down weather (mostly down, below 40). For the first time since September, this morning I went running in a tank top and shorts! It’s going to be almost 80 degrees here today.
So, with warmth in the air, and a little more time on my hands now that the semester is over, it’s the perfect time for picnics.
What’s your favorite food to take on a picnic?
