Picnics. In Dallas now is the time. I think the high was 74 yesterday. Sunny, cool and warm perfect for a picnic. I love fixing a good sandwich, some easy salad and a sweet something for a picnic. Maybe a little wine to the side. Really you don't need much because the food becomes so secondary to the scenery, the people you are with and that feeling of relaxation. It sounds so good.
Here is an idea for a roast beef sandwich. I hope I can fit a picnic in with the kids before the weather gets too cold.
Roast Beef Sandwich for a picnic by ann west
good french baguette
good lean roast beef sliced thin
horseradish mayo sauce
white cheddar cheese
Split your bread. Mix mayo, horseradish, salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice to taste (i like mine spicy) and spread on both sides of bread. Layer the roast beef, fresh basil, cheese and lettuce. Cut and wrap for your picnic. enjoy!
