Pork, Plum And Sage Pasties / Svinekjøtt, Plomme og Salvie Paier

The time for picnics is really back again here in Norway, this week has almost been to hot for comfort. That means it’s time to make fresh lemonade, bake pastries, make sandwiches and get the picnic baskets out of the cupboards and head for a nice park or the woods. Marvelous way to share a meal if you ask me – Ted

Mediterranean Stuffed Layered Picnic Loaves / Søreuropeiske Fylte Lagdelte Piknikbrød

A great picnic recipe found on goodtoknow.co.uk
Mediterranean stuffed layered picnic loaves_goodtoknow_post

These Mediterranean stuffed layered loaves are perfect to bring along to a summer picnic – full of mozzarella and tasty, juicy veg, it’s a really great change from the usual cheese sandwiches. Not only does it taste delicious, it also looks really impressive too, as you can see all the colours from the different veg and mozzarella in all the layers when you cut through.

Make sure you take the time to chill the sandwiches in the fridge for a few hours, as the recipe recommends, because this way the juices from the grilled veg will have time to soak into the bread, not only keeping it extra moist but also adding a really fab flavour to it. This Mediterranean layered sandwich is a great grown-up choice for a picnic, and ideal for sharing with friends! Make the night before so all you need to do is grab them from the fridge before you leave!

The most remarkable about these sausage rolls is that they don’t contain the smallest vestige of sausages, but are filled with chicken, bacon, basil and sundried tomatoes. But don’t let that scare you, they are just perfect both for a picnic or with a cup of tea in the garden – Ted

Dips Perfect for a Picnic / Dipper Perfekte til Pikniken

Several dip recipes found in “Sommermat” (Summer Food)
published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1979

The picnic season is right around the corner although we had a short spell of snow only about two weeks ago here in Oslo (quite uncommon for late April I must say).

Ready made dips in suitable containers and any kind of vegetables, fruit, shellfish, cold meat what ever cut into diping friendly pieces and a great variety of salt snacks like biscuits or chips are ideal for a picnic along with coffee, tea or cold drinks – Ted
