There is still time!….

Make Spring Break more memorable this year! You don’t have to go on a fancy vacation or take the entire week off for the kids to have a great break. Just take one afternoon off, pack a picnic with a meal they’re unfamiliar with, grab a kite (and maybe some vino for yourself) and get some fresh air!

It’s Picnic time! My meal recommendation:

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower mash

Preheat oven to 375

  1. 4 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 2 pounds cauliflower, coarsely chopped
  3. 1/4 cup heavy cream
  4. 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  5. 1/4 cup unsalted butter

Place garlic in a pan, drizzle with olive oil. Roast garlic in the oven until tender and fragrant (about 15 to 20 minutes) Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add cauliflower and reduce heat to medium. Cook cauliflower until tender, (about 10 minutes); drain (remove as much water as possible) Blend drained cauliflower, roasted garlic and heavy cream in a blender until smooth; transfer to a pot over low heat. Stir Parmesan cheese, butter, cream cheese

Vonnie’s Favorite Salad

  1. 1 Large tomato, diced
  2. 1 Cucumber, diced
  3. 1 Onion, chopped
  4. Sprouts (optional)

Combine tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions in a salad bowl. Whisk 1 tablespoon of olive oil with
1 tablespoon of lemon juice salt and pepper, add to salad ingredients. Chill.

Baked chicken wings

Preheat oven 375

  1. ​
6 tablespoons olive oil
  2. ​
6 cloves garlic, chopped
  3. 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes​
  4. 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  5. 2 teaspoons of chili powder
  6. salt and pepper to taste
  7. 20 chicken wings

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Add chicken wings; coat. Arrange the chicken wings on a baking sheet.
Cook in preheated oven 1 hour, or until crisp and cooked through.


Pack a baguette (Pretend it’s a Picnic in Paris!) fruit and fizzy beverages, your kids will have a blast! Don’t forget the

household pet and favorite blanket!

I can smell the fresh air.

Your foodie,

    I love this idea! This is something that I would often do with the kids when they were young. We would pack up our picnic stuff & head over to the lake. The lake that we went to had a little family park area and we would set up our picnic right there. I LOVE the sound of that baked chicken recipe! It would be the perfect centerpiece to a relaxing, family picnic with the kiddos! Awesome.
