Romantic Picnic


Earlier today I made some Less Than Three Eggs and saved the center cutout from the bread for just this recipe! Lunchtime now looms like a Fel Reaver, ground-shakin', growling stomachs and all. So I'll pull out my sammich baggie of heart shaped bread slices and get to work!

These mini sammiches of goodness can be made with any kind of filling you'd like. My hubby likes PB&J while I like deli meat with cheese and lettuce. But you can also fill it with a chicken finger and some marinara sauce or some mayo and tuna and pickles!


The important thing to note about these sammiches is that they are smaller than the average sammich. So you'll want to make more and then suppliment this picnic with lots of other goodies and finger foods. If you want to be truly romantic, pack your food in a 10-slot picnic basket and take him/her to a park (or if it's cold out, spread a blanket on the living room floor and play some co-ops while you munch). You can also hide a present for your sweetheart inside the basket! GameStop gift cards make great, hide-able gifts (hint, hint my dear!)
