A week today we would be at Gatwick airport (well Hilton for one night)
We are planning to take a picnic with us on the train..
Any suggestions?! (I am a veggie)
How about lettuce wraps? Sounds yummy.
I can't wait to see your photos.
How about a mufaletta without the meat? Do you eat cheese? That would be quite tasty and is the original picnic sandwich (courtesy of New Orleans).
I make this alot during the summer:
1 pound fresh ripe tomatoes cut in wedges
1 cup(8 ounces) packed fresh basil leaves
2 cloves chopped garlic
2-3 Tbsp. olive oil
8 ounces of Camenzola cheese ( or may substitute brie or fresh parmesian or gargonzola)
6-8 ounces of cooked hot pasta drained
Place tomatoes, basil, garlic and oil in blender( sometimes I add a good shot of balsamic vinegar too!) Pulse until coarsely chopped but not pureed. Combine cheese and tomatoe mixture in a large bowl and toss with pasta.
If I'm serving it for dinner I use angel hair pasta and serve it right away, If I'm brining it some where I use a small shaped past like orzo and serve it chilled( room temperature is good too!) Pack some nice crusty bread and peaches plus a bottle of wine and you're set!
M & S do vegetarian sushi. Or if they still do it, their 3 bean wrap is nice. :D
