For the picknick we brought along a couple of cans of lentil soup, which Alena - our legume/bean fan - loved, quinoa corn salad, roasted veggie salad, bread, salami, and cookies for dessert. Safe salami besides Coppa is a pretty hard find, however New Seasons carries a Venetian Brand Genoa Salami which is lactose free!!! Yay - and it is delicious :) slicet super thin yummy! The cookies we brought were the Newman's Own, Dairy & Wheat free O's - everyones favorite -> http://www.newmansownorganics.com/food_newman-os.html#
Oh, and yes there was also dinner. We got home late so pasta of last resort it was. Pasta with sauteed sweet onion, fresh green beans from our garden served with plenty of grated Parmesiano Regiano. Simple, plain, and good!
