A Picnic Indoors


As a belated Valentine's Day gift for the DH, I recently made dinner, as in a real dinner and not my normal pasta-corn-peas-greens-cheese routine. I wanted to have an indoor picnic in front of the fire, and I wanted to replicate some of the foods from the Darjeeling River Picnic

I think it turned out great!  I made this Salad Nicoise and these Carmelized Bananas.

When was the last time you had a picnic indoors?

The picnic looks fabulous, Steph! I can't remember when I've had an indoor picnic, but after seeing your photos maybe I will!

How sweet! It looks like a yummy meal and so cozy in front of the fire.

My husband and I had an indoor picnic at the beach last week-end, but alas, no fireplace. Watching the rain and ocean waves was very nice, though.

Loved your photos!

I love indoor picnics, but it has been a while since we've had one. Your Darjeeling picnic recreation looks delighful. It was an amazing day and you certaily captured the spirit of that event.

You romantic you!!
Indoor picnic in front of fireplace with that DH sounds lovely- and using the Darjeeling picnic as basis is perfect. Did you serve tea or have a cool beverage? I can imagine one of these newer tea cocktails as accompaniment!

I haven't done this for way too long. Your picnic looks delightful and I am sure someone special enjoyed it.

It looks delicious, and the perfect picnic food! I see the polenta didn't make it on the menu. :)
