Picnic Point Picnic
As I have said numerous times already, we are on holidays! Wohoo...
Lyn and I have been talking about how nice it can be to get back to the bush. So think of this post as a little taste of Australia.
After our trip to the markets we decided to head out to a favoured picnicing spot, Picnic Point. It is in the Mimosa Rocks NP and is gorgeous. We started off on a walk on the beach and over the rocky point. We came around to little beach and there were no footprints *sigh*. We came back to put the fire on for the snags and enjoy a glass of red whilst we waited for the fire to mellow.
We stuck the bratwurst snags from the local butcher on the fire and enjoyed my fennel salad whilst they cooked. This fennel salad is fantastic, it is juicy sweet and crunchy. It is perfect for a picnic, bbq especially if you serve it with fish.
We put some fresh Banksia flowers into a mug and poured some hot water from our billy on to them, we let it steep for a minute. This gave us a slightly sweet and very yellow brew to ingest.
As the sun started to go down we set off back home, happy and content after our repast in the bush.
1 Fennel, thinely sliced
1 apple, thinely sliced
a few stalks of celery diced
1 red onion or a few spri g onions, sliced
lemon juice, olive oil salt and pepper
Mix together and enjoy!
I said it was good, not hard ;)
