I saw a picnic idea on the net that I just had to try! It was cute, sustainable, used things I already had at home and cost me nothing...
A picnic in a jar? Its fun and looks good too!
Here's what I did...
Due to work commitments, I didn't get to explore this concept any further this time but there are some great salad in a jars in my future, I can predict! I had never considered the practicalities of jars for these type of things. We normally take crockery, not plastic, with us these days so it wasn't a big deal to add some more breakables to the cooler bags. I wrap anything breakable in tea towels and so if it does break the resulting mess is contained in the teatowel and not through the whole bag.
With the summer months coming up and school holidays just around the corner, outdoor dining will be a staple part of our diet. Its time to put the slow cooker away (sob) and move onto the next feasting phase of the year - The Picnic! Have a look at these sites for more wonderful "in a jar" ideas
