Around the end of April, the sun finally starts to make an appearance. Seattleites flock outside to tan their pasty white complexations and soak in some much-needed Vitamin D. Since it is National Picnic Day, there is no excuse not to enjoy dinner al fresco tonight. Except, if it is snowing where you are, then cozy up in front of the fireplace instead.
We have put together a guide with everything you need to pack in your basket for the ultimate cannabis infused picnic.
Start with Cannabis Beverages
Before you dive into the meal, get a little toasty so each morsel you put into your mouth taste like a flavor explosion. The sweetness of Happy Apple is the perfect pairing for your picnic feast. Or if you aren’t an apple person, try Utopia Sparkling Water.
Good Bread is Key
A crusty baguette is one of the greatest gifts known to man. It’s delicious sliced thin and piled high with toppings or keep it simple and tear off chunks to eat with some fancy cheese.
Mix in a Few Quality Meats
Doesn’t matter what size picnic you are throwing, you need to have something to make sandwiches with. Head to your local butcher shop and stock up on thinly sliced prosciutto, a firm salami and pate. There is also a pretty good selection at Trader Joes if you don’t want to break the bank.
Add in Cheese and Nuts
It’s nice to have at least two cheeses available: one soft and one hard like a soft goat cheese and an aged cheddar. If you feel like getting crazy, mix in a creamy brie or parmesan. And don’t forget high-quality salted European butter. For olives, go straight to your local stores olive bar and grab a good mix of small salty black ones and the meatier green Castelvetrano olives.
