It’s Labour Day weekend and we are celebrating by labouring on a picnic extravaganza. It gives me great pleasure to plan out a picnic – from the menu to the logistics. Thinking about the menu and making sure everything fits together harmoniously, the cooking order, storage, timing, how to transport and serve, appeals to my inner organization-obsessed nerd. In the lead-up to Home-Made Month in October, we’ll cover some of our new recipes developed over the past few months, and feature some new guest writers. Maybe, I’ll even update the vegmap for Ottawa!
Our menu for the picnic potluck:
- Fennel and Kale salad with nectarine-orange dressing (own recipe – stayed tuned for this recipe!)
- Harissa-maple roasted carrots
- Jamie Oliver’s satay chicken (video)
- Peach crisp
- Portable iced-tea station (stay tuned for this recipe!)
Others will bring:
- Mango Slaw
We’ll post photos on our next update, with some new recipes!
Happy September, everyone!
