the best picnic snacks

Our attempt at a picnic and fireworks were unfortunately rained out last night. But that didn’t stop us from still haven’t a picnic! We pulled a blanket out in the living room and had an indoor picnic for the 4th.

These are some of my favorite picnic staples:
pick a soft and a hard cheese : I chose a white cheddar and brie
Multigrain crackers & pita chips (both from Trader Joes)
Salami, grapes and roasted asparagus all add a little variety to the heavy cheese and crackers
Don’t forget to pack something to drink! We love italian grapefruit soda

easy + healthy egg bake

No one needs to feel the pressure of waking up with the bakers to get a scrumptious breakfast. This is easy to prep the day (or two) before and easy enough to throw together before you’ve had your morning coffee.
sausage cheese and veggie bake

I started with Skinnytaste’s recipe and spiced it up a bit with the help of Trader Joes – sundried tomato chicken sausage, sweet orange and red peppers, broccoli, cauliflour, leeks, and half an onion.

I chopped the veggies + cooked the sausage two days before cooking the bake because I knew I wouldn’t have time to do any closer to time. I stored it in a large tupperware container and simply sautéed it the morning, mixed the egg mixture and threw it in the oven. Easy peasy!
