Spring is just around the corner, which for my family means it’s picnic time!!! We love getting outside and one of the best ways to make it happen is packing our own lunches and taking them with us, so we don’t have to cut our time outside short. Here are some of our favorite picnic lunches, featuring our Wildgrain subscription box!
My husband loves croissant sandwiches so much, and freshly baked croissants are easy to achieve with no planning at all – every Wildgrain box includes free croissants that can be ready in roughly 30 minutes (oven preheat time included!). I like to bake them in the morning while I make breakfast, and while everyone’s eating, I slice and fill them. His has turkey, ham, provolone & mayo, while mine has turkey, provolone, Dijon mustard & herb mix. It’s the perfect quick lunch for a weekday, too – I add some grapes for balance. Though I show them here on a plate for a work-from-home lunch, they’re just as easy to toss in a reusable sandwich bag to take on the go for picnicking!
Of course, with kids, you have to think about the sweet side of things too – and how to properly serve things so there’s no fighting who gets how many or who has the bigger what. For that, I like packing up their school lunch boxes – here with the delectable cherry pie bites, which bake up flaky and delicious. I round out the lunch with hard boiled egg whites for protein, a few jellybeans and vitamins, cut-up apple & cucumber slices.
And because I’m bougie like that, I also enjoy throwing together charcuterie to take to the park or the backyard to enjoy. The walnut sourdough is a wonderful foil to most any cheese – from soft & spreadable to hard Italian, it’s good with it all. I especially enjoy it with a bit of fig spread, thinly sliced prosciutto, and if I can find it – sliced Fontina. If not, provolone or mozzarella work as well – basically any mild creamy cheese to counter the salty prosciutto.
We’ve also enjoyed their frozen-fresh pastas in the past, with a homemade bolognese or even a bit of jarred sauce that we doctored. The boxes are so versatile and filled with so many goodies — my 5 year old’s favorite was the olive oil ciabatta, which she loved as is while my 3 year old enjoyed it with butter and flaky salt.
You really can’t go wrong with any of their offerings, which change from box to box, for your springtime – or any time indoor – picnics. I have been very happy with getting a box to have delicious fresh bread on hand any time I want, making for fast and easy dinners as well!
The bottom line is — for the best springtime, you’ve got to get yourself a Wildgrain subscription bread box. You can also get $10 off if you use my code — feistyfoodie10.
