Peek at My Weekend

Friday evening the family and I went to the River Concert, a local event, for some delicious food truck delicacies and to listen to a great orchestra play. It’s an annual event that goes on during the summer for about 6 weekends in a row. Each weekend is a new theme and style of music. Most people bring a picnic and a blanket to sit on and enjoy the summer weather.

We stayed for awhile until the clouds started to roll in and a downpour was inevitable We left just in time. I got back to my apartment and it was a raging storm. Hopefully next week will be better! I made a little list of things I’m taking next Friday to include sparkling cider, cheese, wheat crackers, turkey and spicy mustard on sourdough bread, and lots of strawberries. Sounds good, right?

Anyway, here’s a peek at the event!

The St. Mary’s River, perfect for kayaking and sailing. When Maryland was first founded, the settlers sailed up this river and landed at what is now St. Mary’s City, only a few miles from where the annual concert takes place.

Picnic on the Beach: Summer isn’t Over!

Picnic on the Beach

There’s a few more weeks of summer left and I’m making the most of them! Picnics on the beach are where it’s at! For some of you it may be a little chilly to sport that bikini which is why I’m opting for a great transition outfit like the one above!

Wondering what to pack for a summer-fall picnic? I’ve got your list right here:

1. Seasonal fruit– think apples, pears, cranberries, and figs

2. Chicken salad sandwiches– add some cut up grapes and tiny chunks of apple and you’ve got a great sandwich there!

3. Orange infused water- Beautiful and loaded with Vitamin C for the coming virus season

4. Cheese and crackers– Pepperidge Farm makes a box with a variety of yummy crackers in it which will go great with assorted cheeses like gouda or muenster

5. Caramel corn– Buy it at the grocery store or make your own. It’s a perfect dessert for the beach because it doesn’t require anything extra to be brought with it!
