I find the older I get the more attention I pay to my surroundings. I begin to note things like weather patterns and the way they shift and change with the seasons. I take subconscious note of the time of year which the spring bulbs push their wee heads through the frigid earth marking the beginning of new life. I begin to wonder things such as whether or not the month of November is a typically windy one, or if August is typically the wettest. From where this curiosity has sprung I am unsure but most recently it has me thinking about when in the year life moves from inside to out. Was it last November I dug the picnic set out from the back of the cupboard or was it in fact December?
Either way, this recipe is a belly full of summer. So whether or not you fish the picnic set out this month or next make sure that this dish is on the menu. The fresh flavours and the bright colours will bring a touch of summer to any outdoor meal.
