Summer means so many things: freedom, popsicles, daylight that runs on forever, and nights that you’ll always remember. Sunshine, a trip to the pool, snappy white sheets sun dried on the lawn, and sunflowers. Ideally, cut from a field on the way home after a weekend in wine country, but if Trader Joe’s has some, girl, buy those flowers. You won’t regret it.
In Northern California, summer also means picnics. Despite the crap weather and the perennial fog, San Franciscans can picnic with the best of them. From Sausalito Fridays to Stern Grove Sundays, every weekend is a chance to flex your traveling culinary abilities and show everyone that you, too, know the fine art of eating al fresco.
From what to wear, what to cook, and what to pack in that jazzy little bag you picked up at Cost Plus World Market for only $14.99 – this week, we’re talking picnics. You won’t regret it.
