I'd go with the baguettes but I would prefer some Camembert and a bottle of Muscadet.

Kate said...

A tub of ice cold water bottles with a cooler full of pink, fleshy watermelon slices. And a huge bouquet of wildflowers.

Doug Hickok said...

I'll go with my staple lunch sandwich, peanut butter and jelly. Oh, and a bottle of fine wine to go with it.

JM said...

A cold bottle of Alvarinho, a fine green wine from northern Portugal! :-)

VP said...

You guys are too refined... I'll bring some schiacciata rustica (rustic focaccia) to be filled with Tuscan salame and prosciutto.

Hmmm! Now let's see Brattcat, I annoy my daughter intensely because I tend to snaffle food off everyone else's plate, so seeing as I'm sure all your readers would bring something divine, I would probably just be 'at it' again, maybe I could bring a big vase of roses from my garden!! and btw your picture from yesterdays post has a very ethereal touch to it, gorgeous with a touch of 'spirit'!!

Thick baked ham sandwiches on freshly baked wheat bread and cold, cold potato salad (no celery) and a pitcher of sweet iced tea.

Probably just a pair of tired legs, a flask of tea, and a cheese and pickle sandwich.

Malyss said...

Quiche lorraine, pissaladière , beignets de blettes and roulés aux saucisses..:o)I don't know how to say it in english, but I swear you it's good!

Jacob said...

Brattcat and friends!

Sharon said...

Whole wheat bread, honey baked ham, and lots of fresh fruit.

magiceye said...

veg patties and chips..
and some hot green tea!

Jack said...

Definitely a variety of cheeses. Maybe grapes and apple slices. The table will be full, so I will leave other foodstuffs to the others.

Let's see, what have I got in the garden? Okay... I'm bringing a quinoa salad with fresh sweet corn, tomatoes, and cilantro with a balsamic dressing. I'll also bring the noisy children who will, alas, prevent me from finishing any sent-

Butch said...

Me! Oh, and with forkand knife in hand;-)

cieldequimper said...

Well...

Mirabelles tart ; mirabelles clafoutis ; fresh mirabelles ; baguette, salted butter and mirabelles jam.

How does that sound?

Rob and Mandy said...

Tsatziki and ouzo, kali orexi!

Cezar and Léia said...

Cheese and red wine, for sure! :)
Adorable idea!

Virginia said...

Besides vin blanc? Oh maybe some southern deviled eggs and potato salad or I can slip into my French mode and drag out a nice cheese board avec baguette et olives.

Since everyone else is bringing so many yummy goodies I'll just bring myself. Hee hee.

Bob Crowe said...

A loaf of bread, a jug of wine and thou... (I'm addressing Mrs. C. here). The word that comes to mind is sylvan.

Amin said...

Caucasus fruits...

Jilly said...

As usual, I've missed the boat - or the picnic. Well I'd have brought some tomatoes and mozzarella in basil olive oil and liberally sprinkled with basil too and some crusty wholemeal bread. And a bottle of rosé gris. Will we all fit on that bench...

Carraol said...

Music and wine to celebrate Nature, beautiful image!

Elenka said...

I know the picnic is over, but I would still bring my famous nut brownies with a raspberry glaze and dark chocolate frosting.

Sharon Creech said...

Love this shot with its spare lines, an invitation. I will bring fudgy brownines and fudgy tales to tell.
