If you’re like us, you’re looking for little ways to get an escape! With our Trip to the Country live stream our goal is take you on a musical journey away from busyness and stress and into nature…and if you’ve got a tablet or computer you can quite literally take us outdoors!
With that in mind, here are some fun ideas that can give you a chance to take a picnic right in your backyard, on the deck, or inside if its raining!
First up is the Food!
It’s all about being refreshed – and while a picnic takes a little bit of preparation, the pay off is totally worth it. Let’s start with the mix of sweet and savory to give your taste buds their own little adventure. The best part? Each recipe is incredibly easy to make!
How about a simple yet absolutely delicious Thai Watermelon Salad paired with Prawn & Avocado Vietnamese Summer Rolls. You can have a lot of fun preparing Picnic Dip Jars and you get a little fancy with some Mini Pork and Chorizo Picnic Pies.
Dessert is essential for any good picnic…its a bit early for berry season, but there’s all sorts of amazing Saskatoon Berry treats available at the Berry Barn, you have to grab some chocolates from our friends at Harden and Huyse, or order desserts from Calories!
But if you have the itch to make it yourself, our pick are these incredibly delicious and refreshing Lemon and Blueberry Bars…trust us, you’re going to love them!
What to Drink?!
As we asked around the SSO, one drink suggestion kept coming up over and over again…if its a picnic for family or for romance, in Saskatoon it has to include Black Fox.
They offer an array of amazing gins – their Oaked Gin and Haskap Gin are absolute MUST haves. And their website helps you create a custom cocktail for a picnic like their Cucumber Lemonade, Mike’s Sour Cherry Lime Spritz, or a Cran G&T.
Their gin is so delightful that simply mixing with lemonade or limeade will make for the perfect drink for our escape with a Trip to the Country!
Whether a picnic in the backyard, drinks on the deck, or chic indoor glamping, make sure you do something special for this last stream of the season!
